Nurse Opens Domestic Violence Shelter That Gives Free Healthcare To Homeless and Uninsured

Tears came to her eyes when she talked about her grandmother, who sacrificed so much for the people she loved. Tears come to Nurse Asma’s eyes when talking about her father and mother. And they came to her eyes when she reflects on the seemingly unstoppable forces of violence in the world. 

It’s hard to know where to begin when talking about Asma Inge-Hanif. The hardworking, selfless caregiver, who is the director and co-Founder of IBM/Al-Nisaa Healthy Solutions Medical Center, has done so much for others throughout her career. She is a nurse, a chaplain, and has started countless initiatives to help underserved and forgotten people and she does so having seen so much sadness in and around her life over the years.
