The HUCM CARES program has been such a blessing for me during these difficult times. As a busy medical student with minimal income, having some resources to help with food has been essential. I am so appreciative of all donors. – HUCM Student

Founded in 2018 by Dr. Sohail Rana, Patricia Houston, Saher Iqbal, and HUCM Student Council, the HUCM Community Alimentary Relief Services (HUCM CAReS) provides food assistance in the form of gift cards to our medical students who struggle with food insecurity. Currently, many students have to forgo eating in the midst of rising living costs and financial challenges while striving to complete their studies. Please help us make this program self-sustaining through your donations.

Thank you so much for donating to HUCM CAReS. As a first year medical school student at Howard, I faced food insecurity and this program allows me to not have to worry about where my next meal is coming from. – HUCM Student
