Congratulations and Bon voyage to Dr. Ebrahim who is now on her way to Nepal. In support of the Central Asia Institute, which funds education for young women in remote, war-stricken areas of Northern Pakistan, Dr. Ebrahim will fulfill one of her many dreams, to climb to Everest Base Camp. The staff and clients of Afterglow wish her the very best in this admirable endeavour.
The staff of Afterglow Medi-Spa believe strongly in corporate social responsibility. Our special role as health professionals enables us to give back to the communities in which we live, as well as to the world at large.
In 2002, Dr. Ebrahim travelled to Tibet to provide free medical services to the nomads of the eastern regions. In 2006, she climbed Mount Kilimanjaro to raise money for BC Children’s Hospital.
In 2010 Dr. Ebrahim is preparing to climb Mount Everest Base Camp with a mission to promote and support community-based education, especially for girls, in remote, underserviced and war stricken areas of Northern Pakistan. She believes that the best hope for a peaceful and prosperous world lies in the education of all the world’s children.
In collaboration with the Central Asia Institute, a non-profit organization, Dr. Ebrahim has been donating 2% of the profits from Afterglow, since January, 2009.
