What Does IMAS Do?
IMAS is humanitarian organization in service of providing medical equipment to the islands of Cres, Losinj and the surrounding smaller islands. All villages and towns on these islands are the beneficiaries of our donations. The $550,000 donated includes equipment ranging in value from $100 to $90,000. IMAS goal is to support the standard of medical service on the island by providing medical equipment that is difficult for local authorities to obtain. Most of IMAS Board of Directors are immigrants from these islands. There are several ways that IMAS receives financial support through its donors. Most donations came through Golf Outings, Dinner Dance and an annual direct Appeal. Our Board receive no compensation for their work, it is all voluntary. Due to Covid-19 IMAS is unable to continue with its usual events. Due to the pandemic, and to facilitate donations, in March 2021 IMAS created a credit card option on this website www.imasus.org. Visitors can view past donations, news affecting our islands, contact us with questions, and donate funds. The IMAS Board of Directors are always thankful to all who have supported us in the past and will continue its work to help the medical services provided on our islands.
IMAS has been donating hospital equipment to the islands of Croatia since 2005. Our donations have included everything from hospital beds to wheelchairs…. more information coming soon…
