Dr. Qureshi Water Project

Breaking through the chaos to deliver what’s most important: IDRF’s Yemen Water Well project.

The Cause
We are saddened to learn of the passing of Dr. Abdul Quddus Qureshi, a dedicated and compassionate philanthropist and member of the Muslim community who passed away on November 10th in Calgary, Alberta.

Dr. Qureshi was an accomplished surgeon and GP who practised in Pakistan, the UK and eventually in Canada, serving his community of Carstairs, Alberta at the Didsbury Hospital for decades. Throughout his impressive career, he always found time to give to others, volunteering in Pakistan from the 1990s to the early 2000s and providing free medical and surgical services in Kohat at Rehman Medical Centre every year during the winter months. Dr. Qureshi was also an active member of the Calgary Muslim community and served for multiple terms as the President of the Muslim Association of Calgary in the 1980s. Among some of his notable projects that he oversaw throughout his tenure as President includes the development of the SW Masjid, the establishment of the first Muslim cemetery in North America and the Calgary Islamic school.
