Washington — Americans of all backgrounds are responding to the call for volunteers to lend their time and skills to help the Haitian people in the aftermath of the January 12 earthquake. Among those who are responding are dedicated Muslim-American doctors experienced in providing medical relief during disasters.
“We are commanded by our creator to help a fellow man in need,” Islamic Medical Association of North America (IMANA) Relief Committee chair Dr. Ismail Mehr told America.gov. “It’s very clear in the Quran that to save one human life is as if you saved all of humanity.”
