Muslim health clinic wins group’s praise

A free Muslim-operated health-clinic in San Bernardino, Ca has been recognized for bridging the health care cap. The nonprofit Institute for Social Policy and Understanding chose the Al-Shifa clinic for its work in working with communities, namely the mostly Latino and Black communities served by the clinic. Services by the clinic include medical, dental, and eye care for patients. Al-Shifa runs on donations and is made up of volunteers, and while its staff is entirely Muslim, makes certain that health care and service maintain non-religious tones.
