Lombard, IL (January 19, 2009)- Nine American and four Canadian doctors are preparing to depart on a 10-day mission to bring desperately needed medical assistance to Palestinians living in Gaza. The group is sponsored by the Islamic Medical Association of North America (IMANA) in conjunction with the Federation of Islamic Medical Associations. http://ammgaza.blogspot.com/
Among them is Dr. Irfan Galaria, to provide first hand medical assistance to the survivors of the Gaza onslaught. Irfan, son of Drs Ibrahim and Zarina Galaria, grew up in the Metro Detroit area, and was an active member of the IAGD youth team. He is a reconstructive surgeon, working at a Hospital in Salt Lake City, Utah. Please remember Irfan and his fellow volunteers in your prayers, for a safe trip and for success in this noble task.
Let us all use Irfanâ€™s action as an inspiration, and Inshallah, pledge to do what we can to alleviate the suffering of hundreds of thousands of innocent victims in Gaza. This includes Duaâ€™a, monetary donation, letters/emails to your senators/congress representatives and by also participating in opportunities to provide your input to our new President by visiting http://change.gov/newsroom/entry/wrapping_up_the_citizens_briefing_book/
