A BLACKBURN-based charity has donated a specialist cardiac machine to a hospital in India.

Last May, Al-Imdaad Foundation UK launched an appeal to raise money for the heart machine in a hospital in the Gujarat state of India, providing medical assistance to thousands of people in surrounding villages and cities, including rural poor areas.

The current machine was more than ten years old with limited facilities to diagnose heart-related symptoms.

The charity launched used online appeals, radio adverts and door-to-door marketing.

The response was overwhelming, as donations came in from all over the UK.

The charity Muslim Aid Australia also chipped in, and a total amount of £20,000 was raised to buy heart machine.

The new machine provides optimum resolution scanning and performance, and can take vivid colour images in 2D, 3D and 4D to assist heart patients and is the first of its kind in the state of Gujarat. The machine will now help doctors to diagnose better results for patients having heart problems.

Last month a team from Al-Imdaad Foundation UK flew out to India to deliver the heart machine to Alipore Hospital.

International projects co-ordinator Zubair Valimulla said “This is a remarkable achievement for Al-Imdaad Foundation UK.

“Again we have delivered as we promised and this heart machine will support between 100 and 125 patients each month enabling medical professionals to diagnose patients with high quality images in detail.

“We would like to thank all who took part in this fantastic appeal.”

Blackburn with Darwen Mayor Salim Mulla said: “I’m really pleased. I have supported this hospital for a long time, and I know this machine will be very valuable to the people there.

“I’m really happy that this Blackburn charity is doing such great work.”

THANKS to Alimaad
However I have 2 things to say
1. An open eye should be kept on these charities whether they benefits some of the monies for themselves or not ( no offense)

2. Whenever I go mosques instead of praying I read "alimaad" on samads jacket and other peoples so its a requests that at namaz time you take such jacket out ( no offense)

Yes the sad fact is to be classed as a charity the minimum by law to fund the cause you are raising money for is 4% a lot of UK charities are just tax dodging. The highest paid chairman CEO'S are charities.After expenses and wages very little is left 4 pence in the pound is disgusting its a gravy train if your hard faced enough to do it.

Its easy to criticise those who are doing some good you seem to be overly critical of something that will bring nothing but life saving treatment but as you are gujerati its in your genes to throw mud at good work and look for negatives where they don't exist...

If you look down as you are supposed maybe you won't read anything other than your prayers.... Can't help yourself can you gujjie boy...

Salim Mulla was born in Alipore village in Gujarat state in India so he supported this charity plus his Mayor's charity raised £40k for kidney dialysis machines for Blackburn Hospital.
Well done Salim Mulla well done for your effort for good cause, as for some folks posting regarding his past about his benefit claims, it was settled in courts.Salim Mulla did pay back some of his overpaid incapacity benefits.
What about those corrupt politicians who claims fraudulent expenses ? The super rich tax dodgers why some folks want to single out poor people who fraudulently claims benefits ?
