In the name of Allah, the Merciful, the Beneficent
On Allah we rely and we praise Him for what He has given us of successive blessings, particularly the grace of science and learning, through which we have become a cause to help people and a balm to heal their wounds and ease their pain, and an avenue to support the needy and destitute people. With His favour and increment we have become others’ focus of views; each sees us their own way; some may look at us with exultation; other with pride and appreciation; and others may look at us with something other than that.
And since our profession is specific and special humane profession, we always try hard and endeavour through which to remove people’s physical impairments and touch their body with the hand of mercy so to elevate their psychological and moral situation to a higher degree. Thus, medicine professionals at various levels are the messengers of peace for mankind and soothes of their bleeding wounds. They are also the covert of creativity and morality for human beings. Based on that we bear heavy responsibilities; first and foremost, as practitioners of this noble profession, we have to upgrade of professional, ethical and scientific aspects of our profession, and keep the door of hope open for all mankind, who are suffering today from the scourge of wars, disasters and various diseases. This is in addition to the cultural and moral decline as a result of ethical, ideological and political deviations, which create the policies of contention over others’ capabilities and wealth and the attempt of weakening them by various ways and methods.
Such kind of policies has resulted into the exacerbation of diseases and pains in different areas of the globe, especially in our wounded country, Iraq.
For that, some of our colleague doctors have persistently worked towards the establishment of an association for the Iraqi physicians who live and work in Australia in an attempt to implement a number of vocational, health and humanitarian programs in Iraq and communicate with our colleague health professionals and other people there. It also aims at the exploration and introduction of the degree of injustice and violation of rights, which have fallen on the Iraqi people as a result of the unjust global policies that do not want this country to stand up and the Iraqi people to live up.
Our constant and persistent efforts have resulted into the birth of our “Australian Iraq Medical Association” (AIMA). We are confident that AIMA will contribute to deepen the bonds of brotherhood amongst all Iraqi doctors in both Iraq and Australia, and to communicate and work together with our counterparts here in Australia. We also endeavour to establish a concrete and solid base for our Iraqi community through constructive institutions and projects that support the presence of our community and then to develop further communication with our mother country in the best benefit of us all.
We ask Almighty Allah to guide and help us in our endeavours and we ask Him to protect our country Iraq and our people in Iraq, and to further continue His grace of prosperity, security and peace for Australia.
