Najah Bazzy has been recognized by CNN and People Magazine for her work

Najah Bazzy is a nurse who was doing transcultural work at a local hospital after the Gulf War when she met a refugee family living in extreme poverty.

Her work here in Metro Detroit and around the world has gotten her recognized by outlets like CNN and People Magazine.

Najah Bazzy is a woman who saw a need and is now impacting hundreds of thousands of lives. She started a Zaman International out of the back of her van in 1996 and now it has grown to a 40,000 square foot facility in Inkster. Through a voucher program, women have access to free basic needs like food and clothing. They also offer job-ready skill training and language, literacy classes.
