Access to proper healthcare is a priority in the developing world. It is essential for a thriving population, a robust economy, and offers children a fighting chance at success instead of a life of poverty and despair. The Al-Imdaad Foundation’s health and medical programs include establishing medical centres, training medical staff, co-ordinating health workshops and HIV/Aids training. We are in partnership with the Islamic Medical Association for certain health initiatives.
