IMRC Begins 7th Annual India Health Initiative
Lucknow: The medical camp of the 7th annual India Health Initiative, a program created by US-based India Muslim Relief and Charities (IMRC) to provide medical services to the economically weak sections of society in India started at the Jahangirabad Institute of Technology (JIT), Lucknow. IMRC is organizing its annual India Health Initiative for poor and needy this year for the seventh consecutive year. The India Health Initiative was started by IMRC in 2010. This annual program is unique because it provides basic education in health care with an emphasis on preventive health care to the community, and provides technical training to the local doctors and medical students. Last year, over 10,000 patients were seen in medical camps in Hyderabad, Bijapur, and Bangarpet. Manzoor Ghori, Executive Director of Indian Muslim Relief and Charities (IMRC) said, “Working in rural India requires a lot of energy, but at the end of the day, you feel a sense of satisfaction and sense of accomplishment, that we are making some difference to the people here”.
