Unmute the Commute: Ramadan Stories

Ramadan, the month where Muslims fast, is May-June this year. For this week’s Unmute the Commute, we tagged along with some fasting Muslims for their daily commute to the mosque for dinner and prayers. Produced by Hebah Fisher.

Unmute the Commute is a weekly series highlighting commuter stories, supported in part by King County Metro’s Just One Trip.

The Redmond Mosque’s Free Health Clinic

On the third Sunday of each month, a mosque in Redmond opens its doors as a free clinic to all, regardless of faith, race, gender and income. It’s held at the Muslim Association of Puget Sound or MAPS, and it serves anyone, whether or not they have health care – no questions asked.  A small team of volunteer doctors with backgrounds in internal medicine, family medicine, pediatrics, cardiology, naturopathy and acupuncture attend to patients along with other medically trained help. KBCS’s Jim Cantu brings you this story.
