Baad salaam al jameel,

Syedna Aali Qadar Mufaddal Saifuddin TUS ni hukum che that the SBMAA initiate a medical humanitarian relief mission to Yemen, given the emergency situation there. This mission will be to serve the general public in Yemen, not just mumineen.

Details of the mission to Yemen are still being developed. If you are interested in participating actively, please leave a comment on this post, as well as any suggestions or ideas you may have. We encourage all SBMAA members to join the discussion so that we may best leverage our expertise and have a maximum impact, as per Moula’s TUS khushi.

  1. Baade Salaam,

    I would like to participate in this mission. Depending on what works out, we can look to have a team of health care professionals in the area. We can also work to provide necessary medical supplies.

  2. I’m interested. Though, I’m still just a student, but I would be very happy to do whatever I can.

  3. I would also be interested as a non-physician, if there is a need for logisticians or other volunteers. I work with BMI’s Medical IT team, so if there are plans on recording and/or triaging patients, that is something that can be focused on.

  4. I’d be interested as a non-physician as well, dealing with any IT/computer work that needs to be done.

  5. Salaams to all
    We can send teams in rotation for a week at time if all cannot stay the the full time of 20 days . Similar subspeciality people would rotate.
    Would be interested in participating

  6. Labbaik ya Dai Allah.
    I want to participate. The 20 day commitment may be difficult. Maybe 9 days (2 weekends and a week)

  7. Salaam,
    I can make the 20 day commitment. I have emailed Burhani Medical Idara. I look forward to further updates, if there is a group from North America planning to leave soon. I have never been on such relief missions and looking forward to information as to supplies aside from the basics (medical/non medical) that may be needed.
    Thank you.

  8. Salaam,
    I have registered for the mission.

    I encourage everyone to complete your registration and send the necessary information so we can advise you of any action items.

  13. Salaams,

    I am only a student, but have experience working at a doctor’s office and can draw blood etc. I don’t mind doing the “dirty work” so the other professionals can do the more complicated tasks. I am also able to do the 20 days. I would really like to partake in this khidmat opportunity !
