AMECC Hosts Successful Community Fair

 

On October 20, 2013, the American Middle East Christians Congress (AMECC), in 

collaboration with the Middle East Council of Churches and community organizations at 

large, hosted one of the largest yearly community fairs, where physicians, pharmacists, 

attorneys, community organizations, and representatives from government and U.S. 

Congressional offices serviced the community at large in Oak Park, Michigan.

Over 600 citizens received free medical, pharmaceutical, legal, social services. 

Medically, attendees received specialty advice in the fields of internal medicine, 

OB/GYN, pediatrics, oncology, dermatology, pain management, and bone disease. 

They received a full spectrum of blood testing and mammogram and cervical cancer 

referrals. 

Legally, counselors and attorneys advised the community in the fields of general legal 

affairs, disability and Social Security, civil and criminal law, and intellectual property, 

and immigration.

Pharmaceutically, there was physical therapy, paramedical, and auxiliary services 

provided, such as social services, home care and hospice.

A representation from the Iraqi Consulate of Detroit was present to assist newly 

migrated individuals and expatriates in issues related to the Consulate.

This program came at a time when a large segment of the community at large needed 

such services, but could not afford them or did not have them easily available to them. 

The participants of the fair tendered services at a very high standard of care freely.

RE: American Middle East Christians Congress Summit Meeting on July 10, 2013

RE: American Middle East Christians Congress Summit Meeting on July 10, 2013

On July 10, 2013, the American Middle East Christians Congress, with the collaboration of the 

American Middle East Council of Clergies and Middle East Christian public, political, civic, 

civil, cultural, and professional organizations, invited members of the federal, state, county, and 

city law enforcement to discuss issues related to the community, especially in Michigan, and at 

large. These discussions were related to human rights, religious freedom, safeguarding civic and 

civil rights, and ways and means to develop a relationship to educate, resolve, and assist both 

sides that can serve our community, especially for the new immigrants who are not familiar with 

the laws, rules, and regulations of this country. 

The United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Michigan, Barbara McQuade, was the 

chief guest. She spoke about the BRIDGES organization that was created after September 11, 

2001 to develop a dialogue between American government and its branches and the Middle East 

community. The meeting was also attended by sheriffs, deputies, and police officers.

There was representation from United States Senators, Congressmen, and state and local 

legislators. Local mayors and their representatives were also present. 

Overall, it was a very informative and successful meeting to bring the two entities together. 

There was a frank, fruitful, and open discussion that will help for future follow-up.

The American Middle East Christians Congress held this meeting in a series of mini-summits 

between American Middle East Christian community organizations and other political, cultural, 

civic, and religious organizations for a better understanding, cooperation, and dialogue about the 

Middle East Christians' past, present, and future, whether in the Middle East, diaspora, or United 

States. Everybody agreed that such meetings are essential, especially in these difficult days with 

the geopolitical and religious strife with changes in Christian demographic population in the 

Middle East. 

The American Middle East Christians Congress will continue to work to achieve this goal. 

Dr. Ramsay F. Dass, M.D., President, American Middle East Christians Congress
