The AFMI team, led by Dr. Siraj Ahmed, AFMI’s regional vice president of Chicago, will distribute more than 5000 food kits and for medical assistance it will establish two medical clinics in Naushehra and Thatta Gurmani area near Muzaffargarh district of Punjab province. The decision to establish the clinics was taken in light of the fact that there are increasing cases of communicable diseases like diarrhea and malaria, water borne diseases, malnutrition among children, and the massive disruption to healthcare. They also have a plan to set up permanent medical centers in the area to provide medical facilities to the local people.

Meanwhile, AFMI chapters in Albuquerque, Detroit and Houston have also cooperated with other organizations to raise funds for the flood victims.

The AFMI is a North America based grassroots organization, dedicated to socio-economic and educational development of Muslims and other underprivileged masses in India.
