Walking is such an essential part of life and we love to take long walks in the parks , running and jumping in the fields. We enjoy these joy of life and consider them a normal part of our lives but this is not the case for so many.
God has given us all his blessings and we should be thankful to him on bestowing them upon us.
There are many people who can’t walk due to physical problems or disability in the legs by birth, accidents or some other problems.
This is the story of Razia and she is a teacher by profession. She is 33 years old and is a patient of Psoriatic Arthritis for the last 12 years due to which she could not walk as the pain was unbearable when tried. She came to the Rheumatology department of Fatima Memorial Hospital which works in collaboration with the Arthritis Care Foundation and diagnosed her illness and advised her to start her treatment.
Given her family background, the expensive treatment required was not affordable by her family. Arthritis Care Foundation (ACF) is bearing all her treatment expenses and Sponsoring Enbrel Injections which costs around Rs. 516,250. Today, she is improving day by day and is able to walk towards a better life.
Arthritis Care Foundation (ACF) was established in 2001 and working in collaboration with Fatima Memorial Hospital. ACF is helping poor and needy patients since 2007 and has treated many patients till date. ACF wants to continue this cause but it can only be possible due to the people like you.
Please help us and donate generously so that we can help poor arthritis patients and make them walk again.
Cataract is a progressive, painless clouding of the natural, internal lens of the eye. Cataracts block light, making it difficult to see clearly. Over an extended period of time, cataracts can cause blindness. Mostly this disease is related to older people but it can also develop in younger people.
When the protein level increases cataract occurs and makes the vision cloudy. Risk factors for age related cataract include diabetes, prolonged exposure to sunlight, tobacco use and alcohol drinking. Vision can be restored by surgically removing the affected lens, and replacing it by an artificial one.
There are many patients of cataract worldwide and this disease is increasing day by day. This disease is sorted by surgical procedure.
We at Fatima Memorial Hospital hold regular camps to provide free surgeries for Cataract. With the support of philanthropists and donors we have been able to treat so many and given them the opportunity to see the colour of life. We can keep providing free treatment continuously with your support.
Support us today and bring back the beauty of the world for those who can’t see.
Ramadan passed recently; the annual month of fasting where Muslim refrain from eating from sunrise to sunset it’s the month of bounties and blessings bestowed on all Muslims by ALLAH Almighty. This holy month is a month of reflection to look within on the bounties that have been bestowed upon them and to understand the lives and the tribulations of those less fortunate.
According to the Holy Quran “Ramadan is the (month) in which the Quran was sent down, as a guide to mankind and a clear guidance and judgment (so that mankind will distinguish from right and wrong)...” (Q 2:183)
It’s the month of kindness, forgiveness and taking care of the needs of the poor. Every year Muslims fast and spend money on the poor as charity, provide meals and help them in whatever way they can as this is what this month entails that is to help those who need it the most and becoming aware of the problems that surround so many around us.
Fatima Memorial Hospital has a tradition to provide food at the time of sehri and Iftari (i.e. from sunrise to sunset) to patients and their families who are being treated free of cost at the hospital. The institution tries to ensure that no needy individual goes hungry in this holy month however with rising costs sometimes it gets difficult to cater to everyone and we need your support to continue with our tradition.
