California, USA: Ismaili Nurses Provide Medical Care to Northern California Fire Survivors

“Thank you again for all you are doing to help staff the shelter. You and all the Aga Khan Council volunteers have been a tremendous help, and I really can’t thank you enough! Your nurses wanted to be here. They came with such open hearts. It was fabulous.” -Mary Soderstrom, Nursing Director for the Butte County Public Health Department, California.


Read the amazing story of how Ismaili Health Professional Association contacted Ismaili nurses, and 25 volunteer nurses from the nearby Bay Area and as far as Chicago and Dallas, to step forward and provide assistance. Altogether, Ismaili nurses committed over 250 hours of service.

  1. One can find numerous incidents of Muslim care takers during the time of the Holy Prophet(PBUH) who were rendering such services during the times of battles ,that were fought against the warring factions, and Ismailis nurses are today rendering the same services, after all it is the same house and the tradition that is continuing thru the pages of history.Bravo.
