Midland International Aid Trust
Midland International Aid Trust was formed in 2003 and registered in 2005. It was founded by Mr. Mohammed Aslam MBE who invited Professor Abdul Rashid Gatrad OBE to become a Patron. Both Mr. Aslam who was once a bus driver and later a businessman and Professor Gatrad who is a nationally and internationally known paediatrician have worked together from 1991 when they first helped the plight of people in Bosnia and Kosovo. Their work is local, national and international. Locally they support and work with the Oak tree Trust (with whom they, for example, are involved very closely with the homeless and have a project in Niger). Support is also provided to the local Rotary Club. Nationally, various other charities such as Leukaemia Trust, McMillan Nurses and Cancer Research also benefit.
The charity has its headquarters in Walsall, West Midlands (UK) and is supported by an advisory committee. Its function is fund raising and also to provide humanitarian aid and surgical operations to people around the globe. Help and support is provided to people of all cultures race and religion as evidenced by work during the Tsunami, working with the UN in Haiti, floods in Bihar (India), providing life changing operations such as cleft lip/palate in Pakistan and heart operations (‘Have a Heart’) in South Africa.
The charity flies out appropriate medical personnel, such as a heart specialist/plastic surgeons to areas of need. The plastic surgeons such as Nick Hart, Dr Amanullah Raja, Dr M Riaz, Dr Z Rafik and Dr de Giovanni (Heart specialist), do not charge for their work. Where there is an infrastructure, local eye surgeons are recruited to operate free of charge, as has happened in for example South Africa ‘Let me See’ cataract projects, and India. The Trust pays for consumables, travel and accommodation.
