Ms. Bazzy is a nationally esteemed health care consultant, humanitarian, and interfaith leader. She is CEO of Diversity Specialists and Transcultural Health Care Solutions, a training group that promotes cross-cultural understanding between clinicians and patients, and founder and CEO of Zaman International, a Metro Detroit-based nonprofit providing crisis assistance and vocational training to marginalized women with children.
The extreme poverty Bazzy witnessed during post-discharge house calls to hospital patients she nursed led her in 1996 to found Zaman International, a grassroots network of Southeast Michigan donors providing food, furniture, clothing and utility assistance to marginalized women and children throughout the region. The organization was incorporated in 2004 and under Bazzy’s leadership now offers comprehensive crisis assistance, infant burial, and vocational training and life skills programs – all operated out of its 40,500-square-foot Hope For Humanity Center in Inkster, Mich. Through partnerships with international relief organizations, Zaman has also funded projects bringing humanitarian aid and safe drinking water to more than 600,000 people around the world.
