The world is full of colors and natural beauty which influence the mind, body; soul & making them enjoy the beauty of life. However, this is not meant to be for a few who can’t see the beauty that this world holds and are deprived of seeing its wonders. They have to rely on their sense of touch and sound to comprehend what surrounds them: Vision is a blessing from GOD and we should be thankful for our ability to see. There are many who won’t be able to regain their vision however there is a large number who can recover their sight through a small procedure.
There are many patients treated at Fatima Memorial Hospital who had good vision but with the passage of time due to some diseases or misfortune they lost their vision slowly or at once.
A patient at Fatima Memorial Hospital and was diagnosed with decrease in vision and had difficulty in doing his job; the problem was continuously increasing and leading to blindness. Doctors suggested he needed an operation to overcome his problem and retain his vision. . His best corrected visual acuity was noted to be 20/50 in the right eye and 20/40 in the left eye. On examination, a yellowish opacification of the lens in the left eye was noted. On ophthalmoscopy, the red reflex in the left eye was obscured centrally, and the details of the fundus were indistinct.
He belonged to a poor family and it was very difficult for him to bear the expenses of his treatment. Fatima Memorial Hospital provided him free treatment and bore all his expenses.
Now he is improving day by day and is able to perform well at his work.
We are in the position to improve the lives of many but it can only be possible with your help. Due to financial constraints it is very difficult for us to provide free treatment to a lot of patients.
Please donate to us today so we can help more patients suffering from eye diseases.
The early year of childhood is the time when growth is dependent on proper nutrition which is essential for a solid foundation of a healthy life. Children having poor diets due to lack of food or inadequate intake of nutrients are prone to short term and long term health diseases and arestrongly affected mentally, physically and academically. According to President and chief executive officer (CEO) of Save the Children Carolyn Miles in Pakistan, 35 per cent of deaths of children under-five can be attributed to malnutrition in the country. NUR Foundation and Fatima Memorial Hospital have initiated its school meal program which provides weekly lunches to all of the children currently studying at NUR Foundation School. Given the financial backgrounds these kids come from having a full meal each day is becoming difficult with each passing day because of the dire financial constraints the families face. , NUR Foundation Schools are striving to provide its 1850 students healthy meals and will like to make provide them on a daily basis but due to financial constraints it is very difficult to provide meal on daily basis. To reach this goal we need your generous support so that we all can continue to see their happy faces. Please donate and change their lives.
Pakistan ranks the second with the most out-of-school children in the world with only Nigeria ahead of it according to a child rights body.
Pakistan has been placed 146th out of 187 countries in terms of human development, according to the annual Human Development Report, recording only a marginal degree of change in the Human Development Index (HDI) over the last three to four years. The literacy rate of Pakistan is said to be 56% and a person who can write his or her name is considered to be literate thus we can imagine the reliability of this figure.
Despite these staggering figures, education is still not getting the important in the government sector as it should be and currently the Government spends only 2.1% of its GDP on education.
Fatima Memorial Hospital tries to play its small role in trying to provide a better future for our children.
Fatima Memorial Hospital started contributing in the field of education in 1985 when it opened its first NUR Foundation School in 1985. Today 18000 children have completed their primary education from NUR Foundation Schools and currently 1850 are completing their education and all students are provided free books, uniforms and stationery items every year. We can continue and keep educating the children of our nation with your help.
