The difference you can make!

Tremendous progress has been made since the implementation of this project. Its growing success is spreading rays of hope amongst the arthritis patients. With the support of the Arthritis Care Foundation (ACF) and the Fatima Memorial Hospital (FMH), many patients have been diagnosed at initiated timely treatment which has consequently resulted in effective response, thus reducing disabilities and fatal outcomes.
The patient depicted above in the photograph is Ms. Rubina, who was suffering from severe disability and was bound to a wheelchair due to delay in her diagnosis and referral .With the help and support of ACF, she had her hip replacement done and you can see that she is now able to walk and take care of her loved ones.
FMH, ACF and arthritis patients sincerely thank all their supporters who have provided funds for the not only expensive treatments like Biologic Therapy but also for providing scholarships to trainees in Rheumatology in order to have qualified rheumatologists to for providing expert care to the ever growing number of arthritis patients.
We would highly encourage your further support in this program and we warmly welcome all your suggestions regarding how to improve our work and what more can be done for this project.

They need our help....step forward and help fight disability
