Pennies for the Poor was founded by Dr. Shehla Ebrahim, a private skin care physician in Vancouver that specializes in acne, hair loss, and psoriasis through in-person and online consultations. Her motive to start a movement bigger than herself, was inspired by her own story and how she broke through cultural practices and brutal norms that imposed restrictions on how she should live her life. As a result, her main priority and life mission is to help other women fulfill their dreams and create their own destinies no matter their cultural, geographical, or economical background.
Pennies for the Poor is funded by the operations of Dr. E Dermatology, as 10% of all medical skin care consultations are directed to help those living in restrictive circumstances, reach their potential.
The consultation fee is 150$ CAD for a 30 min consultation securely taken via PayPal/Square.
Dr. E is passionate about helping women in third world countries through microfinancing loans and educating women and children through the Aga Khan Foundation.
