The Charlotte Observer: Shifa Free Health Clinic serves the uninsured

HighLights

  • Shifa is the Arabic word for healing
  • Clinic open once a month to the uninsured below the poverty line, regardless of religious affiliation
  • Located at American Islamic Outreach Foundation on Shamrock Drive

A new health clinic at the American Islamic Outreach Foundation (AIOF) is offering free medical care once a month to people who don’t have insurance and who live below the poverty line.

The clinic was started in October after Raza Ulhaq, a Charlotte pharmacist, had noticed many people were coming to him for medical advice. He met many of them when he went to his local mosque for prayer.

Shifa Free Health Clinic – Oct 2015 by Quran Mobile

Quran Mobile attended 53 patients today from 10 am to 4 pm and the feedback we received was excellent. The feedback we received was that they thought the clinic was organized professionally with smooth flow from Reception, Registration, Pre-Screening, Doctor’s visit to Counseling.
There were several patients who had not visited a doctor in a long time, for example a mother with kids was in pain since last 15 days without any medication, another person whose blood sugar level was and had not seen a doctor in a long time, and there were many more.
Some said Jazakallah Khair and some said God Bless You. Most of them said that they shared this information on social media in their communities already.
You all made the difference Alhumdulillah ! May Allah SWT accept your services. Aameen.
