A Giver at Heart
Dr. Ahmed has a strong commitment to his community and neighbors. He contributes a significant amount of his personal time and energy to philanthropic pursuits. Part of this has to do with his humble upbringing.
At the age of 7, Dr. Ahmed immigrated to the United States with his family. Since the age of 13, Dr. Ahmed has worked tirelessly to lift up others in his community. As a youth, he worked several jobs to help his family maintain financial stability after his father experienced a medical illness that left him paralyzed.
Dr. Ahmed’s life goal is to support and encourage disadvantaged youth to achieve their potential, just as he did. His mission is to reduce the effects of poverty and lack of resources on those most affected —especially minorities and children. He fights against inequality and poverty by helping to provide greater access to education, healthcare, and housing to children in his local community.
Dr. Ahmed’s philanthropic pursuits focus on investing in hospitals, housing, and clinics. He believes that these are the pillars of the community. He has provided laptops, books, and school supplies to kids in both Chicago and Houston via various churches and local organizations.
Supporting the Community During a Pandemic
During the worldwide pandemic, Dr. Ahmed focused on how he could give back to the community and his neighbors in need. He turned his focus towards investments that would help local communities fight the pandemic, namely in health and education. He believes that his contributions have helped a great deal of healing and growth take place in his local community.
