It was also wonderful to meet you, Dr. Hameed. We greatly appreciate your generous support and service for the patients of our community.

As the healthcare industry faces a global shortage of PPE, Eid United, with the generous support of the community, has donated 4,500 masks total (3,000 surgical masks and 1,500 KN95 masks) to various local hospitals in Southern California facing shortage of these items, including Emanate Health Foundation (with three hospitals in Covina, West Covina, and Glendora), San Antonio Regional Hospital in Upland, and Azusa Dialysis Center in Azusa.
As this shortage is far from over, we will continue our efforts Insha’Allah. If you would like to donate specifically for this purpose, please select “Covid-19 Medical Supplies” when donating. JazakAllahu Khairan for your support.
