MIAT complete a school in Nepal with the help of the Nepalese Medical association and XL Radio.
Midland International Aid Trust (MIAT) was formed in 2003 and registered in 2005. It was founded by Mr. Mohammed Aslam MBE and Professor Abdul Rashid Gatrad OBE, who is a nationally and internationally known paediatrician. They met up in 1992 when they first helped with the plight of people in Bosnia and Kosovo.
Midland International Aid Trust aims to provide medical care where there is an established infrastructure. It also provides humanitarian aid globally (over 20 countries) to those areas affected by natural and man made disasters - such as wars
An X-ray machine has been purchased by MIAT for Jubaida Gatrad Maternity Hospital. The monies were donated by the Memon community of Dubai. Many thanks to the Majid family and Mr Sattar Pardesi for facilitating.
Professor Gatrad CEO of MIAT finally succeeds in brokering a Memorandum of understanding between 2 universities. In principle it has been agreed that discussions will commence on setting up a first of a kind course in Perinatal midwifery which involves the care of mother during labour and subsequently the care if the baby. This will, it is hoped seriously decrease the deaths of mothers during and after delivery and the vulnerable babies surviving.
