Fahim Rahim is an American Nephrologist and chairman of Idaho-based JRM foundation For Humanity and Co-founder of Idaho Kidney Institute. He received the Ellis Island Medals of Honor for his contribution to achievements in dialysis and kidney care. Fahim and his brother own and operate the Idaho Kidney Institute, with offices in Pocatello, Blackfoot, and Idaho Falls. The dialysis center at Bingham Memorial Hospital specializes in the treatment of chronic kidney disease. They employ state-of-the-art procedures and therapies to treat chronic kidney disease, uncontrolled high blood pressure, post kidney transplant care, internal medicine, diabetes related kidney problems, anemia and dialysis. In response to the Nepal earthquake, Rahim led a humanitarian mission with one of the largest privately funded American relief teams; this very quickly turned into one of the largest International teams with hundreds of volunteers from many countries including America, Canada, India, Pakistan, Nepal and Dubai. Dr. Fahim initiated and projected a #MillionDollarChallenge CrowdRise crowdfunding campaign to President Obama, with the goal of raising $1 Million, that went viral. The JRM Foundation raised close to $180,000 from the campaign. Fahim also wrote a Congressional letter with a petition that was signed by over 25 American and International Nepali organizations out of the US. After spending two weeks in Nepal helping with the relief efforts, Fahim returned to East Idaho and hosted a rally at Klyde Warren Park to provide quake relief to Nepal. Humans Of Our World is proud to have Fahim as our Ambassador.
