Multinational pharmaceutical companies and death flourish side by side.
A vast majority of the people is confronting protein malnutrition, several severe vitamin and mineral deficiencies, rampant infectious diseases, and depression and anxiety disorders. Also, the poor often involve themselves in criminal activities out of desperation, anger and an urgent need for money.
Disease does not come considering the time and affordability of the patient.
A Pakistani who walks into a government hospital has a higher chance of dying than of being treated properly for his/her affliction. The prices of medicines are rising beyond reach of even the middle class.
No doubt that the Government is trying to make good efforts to render medical coverage but the hospitals run by the Government are not able to furnish all the required facilities and to cater the medical demands of general public, whereas the private medication is beyond the approach of the poor community. This life is dejecting. Just go to any hospital, you can see the poor villagers and other non-affording people coming from remote areas, suffering from dangerous diseases. There are a lot of cases like skin-burns, fatal infections, Myocardial infraction, nervous disorders, Tuberculoses, Hepatitis, Cancer and AIDS etc.
With a limited amount of budget, we are not able to give medical facilities to all the people who knock our door. However, we are focusing our efforts in the area of medical support on account of TB, Cancer and Hepatitis.
Our aim is to support the poor, families and patients who can’t afford expenditures for medical treatment due to their financial problems.
Life is subject to different affecting factors like social status, financial status, mental peace, emotions etc. In the world of today, peace of mind requires financial strength. A good financial strength leads to a good social position.
The economic and social suffering of an ordinary Pakistani has risen to an unbearable level. Some of the young girls work outside their homes in unsuitable environments. Some earn their living by knitting, stitching, envelope making etc. Child labour is increasing day by day. Men and women commit suicide because of their failure to feed their families.
Not all statistics clash with reality, though. Pakistan is sliding down the united Nations Human Development Index (HDI) because HDI measures what matters not to the establishment but to the Pakistani people: life expectancy, poverty, education, inequality, and access to basic facilities. Every third Pakistani does not have enough to feed himself and his family. Two out of three Pakistanis subsist on less than $2 a day. We are currently ranked 144 in the HDI; only Yemen and sub-Saharan Africa are below us. Pakistan is among the lowest of the low when it comes to welfare of its citizens.
Financial / product support usually covers cash help, food, sewing machines etc.
