Imam Murtaza – Medical Aid
Iran has not been immune from the vast ranging economic impact of the Corona Virus shut down and it is the community that has been able to keep the people afloat. Many people who rely on their daily work as labourers have simply lost their jobs and are unable to pay for essentials including basic medical care.
Welfare Aid Australia has partnered with Imam Murtaza Charity in Iran to provide such basic services.
Imam Murtaza Charity currently runs two medical clinics in Tehran, one a 4 storey building and the other a 5 storey building, and services those in poverty including those living in Iran who have had to migrate from Afghanistan and Iraq. Those who can afford to pay for the service pay a discounted fee, while those who are not able to are offered the service free of charge.
The annual cost of running these services are approximately $45-50k AUD per year.
Services provided include:
- General Practice
- Dental services
- General Surgery
- Plastic Surgery
- Breast Cancer Diagnostics and Therapy
- Paediatric Clinic
- Ear, Nose and Throat Specialists
- Maternity Clinics
- Nervous System Clinic
- Sonography – including for pregnancy, 4D, Thyroid, Renal, Liver etc
