About the Association
In October 2006 Medical Doctors and Pharmacists of Bulawayo came together and established the Islamic Medical Association of Zimbabwe (IMAZ). With the objective of alleviating the plight and suffering of people who needed medical assistance under the umbrella of Islam.
Through the assistance of the community, they purchased a clinic in Bulawayo and named it Al Shifa clinic. IMA South Africa donated a mobile clinic, which enables them to conduct outreach programmes in the outlying areas
IMAZ has established branches in Harare and Kwekwe. It is in the process of establishing Al Shifa clinics in these centres.
IMAZ received branch status from IMA South Africa, recognition from Zimbabwe Medical Association ZIMA, and is a member of Federation of Islamic Medical Associations (FIMA). It has a membership of more than 20 Doctors countrywide and is expected to grow.
Meet the Founder and Past President of IMAZ
Dr. Hassan Ashmawy
Motivated by people who needed help due to suffering, Dr. Ashmawy felt duty bound to assist the community in any way possible. The thought of a medical service offered under the umbrella of Islam was mooted.
