About Our Auction

Due to current circumstances our physical banquet dinners were cancelled last year. This year, we are trying to host them virtually to raise funds for the programs which serve our community in need for no cost health services and food insecurity.
Your help and support will benefit our neighbors and community in general in these times of crisis.


About Shifa Clinic

The Shifa Clinic is a non-profit and tax exempt clinic established by The Islamic Circle of North America Relief USA (ICNA Relief USA). We are a member of the South Carolina Free Clinic Association.

Our Clinic has been providing compassionate quality advanced Gynecological and Primary health care to the residents of our communities who do not have health insurance and cannot pay for such services. The clinic was established on January 7th 2012 with the financial support of Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA) Relief USA to eliminate health barriers by offering health services without cost.

The Shifa Clinic is located in Mount Pleasant, SC. Many of the services we provide cannot be obtained anywhere else in the state at no cost to the patients. Patients must meet the following criteria for free services: be between the ages of 19-64, have no health insurance, and have an income level that falls within 250% of the federal poverty level based on the number of people in the household. Along with medical services, we have three hunger prevention programs including Child hunger prevention, Food pantry, and Homeless hot meal service .

Each year in August we also hold back to school giveaways, including backpacks and school supplies to local schools and children in need.
We feel that these projects are vital for the current needs of our community and will continue to be useful throughout their lives. Our organization is dedicated to the process of making that happen.

The Shifa Clinic is governed by a Board of Directors consisting of interested community members and physicians. The Board meets every 3 months.
Staff meeting is on a monthly basis.
