The Shriner’s International operate 22 Shriner’s Hospitals for
Children throughout North America, where patients receive expert care
centered around their needs – physical, mental and emotional.
Ahmed Shrine, which includes the entire Upper Peninsula of Michigan,
currently has 320 young people from the Upper Peninsula being treated by
the Shriner’s Hospitals for Children. As a part of making sure these
young patients get the medical attention they need, the Ahmed Shriner’s
provide assistance for the transportation, meals and housing costs in
getting the patients to the Hospitals for their surgeries and
appointments, and also cover the costs for the aircraft and burns team in
the case of a necessary burns emergency.
