The Association of Physicians of Pakistani Descent of North America (APPNA) and Islamic Circle Of North America (ICNA) signed a partnership agreement to serve poor and needy patients in the USA. Four mobile clinics were also developed for this purpose.
Project Key Details
The agreement was signed in Baltimore a few days back during a three days annual convention. Initially, the project is started with four clinics but the number will increase with the passage of time. However, all four advanced mobile clinics are provided by Pakistani doctors of APPNA. The project will cost millions of dollars that offer free of cost quality health services to people of remote and rural areas. In addition, APPNA doctors will also work voluntarily in these clinics.
Approach Is Positive And Everyone Is Involved
APPNA’s president, Dr. Sajid Chaudry, said in a statement that the project was started last year to provide free healthcare facilities. He further added that it is a joint venture of APPNA and ICNA in which doctors will be from APPNA while ICNA will offer other facilities. ICNA’s vice president, Dr. Mohsin Ansari, thanked APPNA’s leadership and said that it is first of the four vans that have all medical facilities. He also said that these vans will be also used to help people during an earthquake, floods, and other natural disasters.
