INDIAN Muslim Relief and Charities (IMRC) volunteers will gain insights into a variety of activities related to IMRC healthcare, education, women’s empowerment and skill development programs in India during the trip in December.
With this enrichment program volunteers will also gain an understanding of poverty and illiteracy in India.
The IMRC volunteers will stay in Hyderabad and will visit surrounding villages during the trip starting from December 13 – 22, 2017. They will visit an eye hospital, join mobile medical clinic and visit slums to assess the healthcare needs urgently required and to provide treatment.
“The volunteers will also spend a day with women laborers to gain a firsthand understanding of women who work for basic livelihoods, such as making incense, crafts, and bangles and spend a day in a village madrasa and live your life like a student there.”
Manzoor Ghori, Executive Director of IMRC, said, “The goal of the trip is to instill a sense of service and charity in our young adults and develop in them a deep appreciation and attachment to our unfortunate Muslim brothers and sisters in India.”
“A team of volunteers in the past solved the problem of poor health in an impoverished area. They came back to the US, got 50 water wells built there and saw significant positive change there, Alhamdulillah,” he added.
The trip will also provide volunteers the opportunity to learn about their roots and culture while gaining life-long experiences with which they will return with a feeling that they have made an impact on someone’s life.
The cost of 10-day trip is $2500 per person and is open for girls only, 18 and above.
IMRC works closely with local NGOs in India and partner with many organizations providing volunteers meaningful work at the grassroots level where it is much needed.
