Bring Change - Save Lives

Dear GlobalGiving Donors,

The year 2020 was a tough year for everyone especially, for health workers all over the world. This Covid-19 pandemic shook the world systems but the healthcare system was the one that couldn’t afford to get affected. 

Belonging to a healthcare non-profit organization, we fought a difficult battle because our fight was not only to keep our hospital's corona free but was also to provide the best possible medical services to our patients. 

We thank all our donors because it wouldn’t have been possible without their support. We pray for you and the safety of your loved ones and also that the world gets out of this pandemic soon.

Warm Regards,
Team Medicare Health Foundation (MHF)

Activities Summary:

 
A New X-Ray Unit Inaugurated at MHF-Noor Elahi Branch

Medicare Health Foundation started with a focus on mother and child health at our first hospital in Badami Bagh. But as time passed, we expanded our facilities and after our MCH, we opened a new hospital- Medicare Hospital Noor Elahi Branch in 2018. With the addition of this new facility, we revisited our Vision and thus incorporated specialist medical services in addition to our prior focus on gynecology and obstetrics. With the introduction of orthopedics as a specialty at our hospital, our doctors used to send the patients to other hospitals to get their X-ray in the absence of this facility in our Noor Elahi Branch. Our organization soon realized that to provide the best possible services to our patients, we would have to bring this service in-house.

Our CEO Ms. Rehana Baray committed herself and took the initiative of materializing this aim. She put forward the requirement to our board members in October 2020, and we immediately received the complete funding of our X-ray unit from our Chairman.

The X-Ray unit was inaugurated on December 18, 2020. The equipment installed is of the latest technology, performing digital x-rays. Since its installation, it is benefiting more than 100 patients a month and we expect the number to go much higher, with an expected increase in patient flow to the hospital.

Won $8,550 In Our Virtual Fundraiser     

Medicare Health Foundation organized a Virtual Fundraiser on Giving Tuesday, a Global Fundraising Day marked on December 1, 2020. MHF took part in it through the crowdfunding platform GlobalGiving, where our project was selected in this campaign. We organized a virtual concert collaborating with our partner schools LGS, TNS, BCP, in addition to our event partners Giraffe and Daftarkhwan who worked voluntarily on this project. The campaign was a roaring success and we raised $8,550! As part of this fundraiser, we organized a virtual concert featuring Soch and Bayaan, whose performances gave life to our event. 

Sharing is Caring-Christmas Campaign 

Medicare Health Foundation celebrates Christmas every year with our employees and the communities we serve. This year due to the Covid-19 pandemic we were not able to have celebrations physically, but we gave ration bags to our workers. Not only this, but we also sent 700 goody bags for children to churches in the vicinity of our Medicare Badami Bagh Hospital. We at Medicare believe in equality and that humanity is the biggest religion.

Orthopedic Success Stories- A New Life    

Since our Medicare Hospital - Noor Elahi Branch started offering orthopedic services, we have seen our expert Orthopedic Surgeon, changing the lives of many of our visiting patients. One of them is a newborn baby girl who was born with the disease Arthrogryposis, also she had Congenital Vertical Talus. In arthrogryposis, the patient suffers from joints stiffness throughout their body since birth. 

 

The baby girl had stiffness in many of her joints like fingers, knees, and one of the bones (talus) of her feet was not in its normal position; instead of the transverse position, it was in a vertical position due to which the feet were not in their proper shape. The doctor initially plastered her feet to bring flexibility and improved their shape. And finally brought them to normal shape after surgery. He through his expertise and experience gave a new life to a newborn child paving a way for her to be able to walk on her feet with ease and live a normal life. 

 


Free BMD Test Camp

Medicare Health Foundation organized a free BMD (Bone Mineral Density) test camp with AGP Pharma Limited at Badami Bagh on 16th November for the welfare of the patients. This Camp provided free checkups and consultancy that how people can take care of their bone health by improving their diet and start taking supplements on time. It was especially focused on women because osteoporosis starts in women at an early age and if their bone health is not taken care of on time, it can lead to serious health conditions. 

Supporting Patients with Zakat/Donation

Medicare has been spreading smiles for 16 years now! Our purpose is to provide affordable healthcare services to low income and underprivileged communities. Our dream has been possible only through our donor’s contribution and support. Medicare feels privileged to have such support. We support C-section surgeries with 50% or sometimes 100% Zakat. We also give Starter Kits (Baby clothes) to all the babies born at our hospitals.

No. of Patients: 19089

Dear GlobalGiving Donors,

Since the start of this year, the world is fighting every day with this pandemic so that it can live another day. But belonging to a healthcare organization, our fight doubles because our focus is to keep our patients safe from Covid-19 and also provide them the best healthcare services.

As the world has started coming back to its normal routine, we are still making sure that our hospitals are secured from corona for all our patients. 

We pray for you and your loved ones safety and wish that we come out of these difficult times soon. 

Warm Regards,
Team Medicare Health Foundation (MHF) 

 

Activities Summary:

 

Emergency Response Cell

Medicare Health Foundation, considering Covid-19 situation, started providing Tele consultation and transporting oxygen cylinders to  the homes of patients with breathing issues arising from COVID-19. The purpose of providing such facility was that during the peak time of corona, bed occupancy in hospitals was full, and many COVID-19 patients requiring immediate care would be completely helpless. By giving them such service, we helped a number of COVID patients survive.  

Conducting Orthopedic Surgeries at Noor Medicare

Our main focus is to provide the best affordable healthcare services to the underprivileged. We are not only ensuring safe births but also conducting different surgeries, one of them being orthopedic surgeries. We are now successfully conducting orthopedic surgeries at our Noor Medicare Hospital, by highly reputed surgeons.

Disinfecting our Hospitals

Keep in view the Covid-19 situation; we are keenly focusing on keeping our hospitals corona free so that each patient is safe in our facility, and each mother and baby born is sound and healthy. We were awarded a grant by two Netherlands based organizations, Equator Medicare and Wilde Ganzen, for conducting a three month drive for making our hospitals secure against Corona virus threat.  

Our CEO to the Rescue

When we talk about an organization that is determined towards helping individuals and saving lives, we mean each person who is part of that cause. Our patient Abida was living in a village during her pregnancy and was expecting twins. Just a few days before her delivery, the village doctor told the parents-to-be that the babies are conjoined. The panicked parents did not know how they would afford treatment for their babies, and another disturbing thought was that no such facility was available in the village to cater to their medical needs. Our CEO, Ms. Rehana Baray, came to know about this patient and immediately sent an ambulance van from Noor Medicare Hospital to get the expecting mother admitted. After detailed examination, it was discovered that the babies are not conjoined. The mother underwent C-Section surgery and delivered healthy babies, thanks to the competency of the doctor and her staff at Noor Medicare Hospital. By His grace, both mother and babies are happy and safe now.

Meeting with Lady Health Workers to Ensure Safe Birth

Medicare held a meeting with Lady Health Workers (LHW) of the surrounding areas of our Badami Bagh Hospital. The purpose of the meeting was to impart information about our expert Gynecology and Obstetrics services, so they could refer expecting mothers to our hospital and help provide them a safe birth experience.

Free Antenatal Checkup

A free Antenatal checkup was organized at our Badami Bagh Hospital for the surrounding community. Our experienced Gynecologist, Dr. Shaista created awareness among patients about the importance of antenatal care and also attended the patients.

Polio Vaccine Camp

Every year, Medicare Health Foundation takes responsibility and arranges a Polio Vaccine Camp at its hospital. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, this year the vaccination campaign got delayed but once the situation got better, we organized a Polio vaccine camp ensuring adherence to COVID SOPs so that we can also contribute our services to eliminate this virus from its root.

No of patients: 15,388
Babies born: 82
Surgeries: 64
