I.M.A.M.’s Humanitarian Services are designated to collect and raise funds for the purpose of humanitarian aid to support and help the poor, the orphaned, the unprivileged and all those whose situation requires assistance. Through these services, I.M.A.M. can support and uplift the moral, spiritual and educational status of such individuals, regardless of their geographic location locally or internationally.
Adhering to its firm belief in Faith and Integrity as core values, I.M.A.M. continuously surveys the state of the Muslims living all around the world, especially in United States of America. At times, certain unfortunate incidents occur in various areas of the world that are of serious concern to Muslims living in the United States of America. When such incidents occur, I.M.A.M. collaborates with other humanitarian organizations to provide aid to the victims of these distressing events. Such cases include:
There are millions of Iraqis who are living in some of the worst conditions imaginable in all the world. Many of these people do not have the ability to feed themselves, much less their families, nor do they have the ability to seek medical attention. In 2010, I.M.A.M. set up relief efforts to help the innocent people of Iraq. Such aid included medical relief in the form of surgical and general medical equipment as well as medical expertise and clinical facilities.
In the middle of 2010, Pakistan was hit with massive floods, killing and displacing hundreds of thousands of innocent Pakistanis. I.M.A.M. along with other partnering organizations, put together relief efforts to help the displaced families in Pakistan.
At the beginning of 2010, a massive earthquake struck Haiti, killing and displacing over 100,000 Haitians. I.M.A.M. collaborated with other organizations to put together relief efforts aimed at providing much needed help to the disaster victims of Haiti.
The United States:
Here in the United Sates, we have witnessed many natural disasters over a very short period. In 2017 alone, several major hurricanes affected the southern portion of the United States, especially in Texas, Florida, and Puerto Rico. I.M.A.M., in coordination with the Najaf office, is authorized to allocate khums funds toward hurricane relief efforts in addition to general donations made particularly for this cause. To this effect, an Emergency Relief campaign was enacted to aid brothers and sisters in affected areas.
