On March 28,2020 Asma Inge-Hanif, Executive Director & Founder of Inge Benevolent Ministries sent out the email below to Governor Larry Hogan with the subject heading: "Official Request To Be A Coronavirus Testing & Resource Site"
Greetings Governor Hogan, Inge Benevolent Ministries Healthy Solutions has been a nonprofit community health center caring for our vulnerable populations for over 30 years. The purpose of this communication is to contract with the State of Maryland seeking inclusion in the nations response to this Pandemic crisis through use of our health center as being qualified as, identified as and supplied with the means to be able to serve as a resource and testing station provider for those unable to be and/or not being served by those outside of and distanced from our neighborhood.
I am Asma Inge-Hanif, Executive Director & Founder of Inge Benevolent Ministries dba as Muslimat Al Nisaa Shelter as well as Healthy Solutions Holistic Health Center.I am a Hartford Seminary trained Chaplain, and a Advanced Nurse Practitioner. I have been involved in health and humanitarian service for over 45 years, have received training as well as certification in Disaster Relief/Preparedness through FEMA and a member of their list serve. Believing that every man, woman and child has the right to receive quality care in a dignified manner, and to be assisted in the achievement of optimal health and well-being, regardless of race, creed, or socio-economic level I established a Health and Social Services Center to care for the underserved and uninsured. I watch the statistical data and feel compelled to be able to serve those in need as a humanitarian solution for those in our communities without viable options.
Unfortunately, the current administrations stimulus package disproportionally distributes aid by focusing less on those who are of low income, marginalized, uninsured and/or homeless. I operate solely on donations and the numbers I am able to help would be directly proportional to the amount of financial support received and thus would humbly need and request the testing kits and other government provided supplies. THEREFORE: Referencing the predicted catastrophic effect of this Coronavirus pandemic, I extend this offer of help here in Baltimore to any whom are without resources and unable to be accommodated by anyone else. Based on the circumstances, there are many needs requiring many solutions.

There were only two stages of grief for one runner when the Milwaukee Running Group shut down daily group workouts last month. For Olivia Spring first came “sadness” then came “let’s do something about it.” Olivia's idea to get herself out of the funk was to go to a map and plotted a street run that would draw one out of her favorite things -- a cat.

Thank you to the many, many nurses in the ICU who gave me the very best care. I wish I could remember them all by name, as I am so very grateful for each one.

Justin is a paramedic, fire fighter for the city of Milwaukee. He, along with all the other fire fighters and paramedics out there are risking themselves for the wellbeing of other people. This virus has a HUGE impact on all the fire departments and their call volume. The house he’s stationed at will get between 18-20 calls for paramedics; not much sleep there! I worry about him and that he...
