Omar's Story

Dear Friends,

Thank you for your continued support of helping our patients receive the highest quality of medical care. Your generous donations help support patients such as one year old, Omar Baksh to get the necessary healthcare aid. Omar came into SHINE’S clinic in Gharo on November 24th of 2015 severely dehydrated and suffering from malnutrition, weighing in at a less than nine pounds upon his arrival. His father stated that they were very poor and could not afford to take Omar to a doctor, although, he had been sick for the past ten days and had been vomiting continuously. They had just found out about SHINE’S charity clinic and therefore came here.  With the help of our doctors our clinic was able to provide Omar with the necessary treatment and fluids to stabilize him. He was later referred to a government children’s hospital in Karachi for further management. Omar’s story is nothing new in Gharo, there are thousands of children in Pakistan suffering from malnourishment everyday.

Over 65,000 needy patients have benefited from the support of our generous donors this year. Please continue to support SHINE Humanity in our effort to help treat those who severely need assistance and can’t get it on their own.

On behalf of SHINE Humanity and its beneficiaries, we offer our heartfelt thanks and wish you a very happy and prosperous New Year.

Irfan's Story

Irfan's first visit.

 

Dear Friends,

Thanks to your continued support around 5,500 patients receive quality care each month at the three charitable healthcare sites supported by SHINE. Here’s another story about how your contributions help people who most need it. This past summer an energetic twelve year old boy named Irfan came to our clinic in Gharo  complaining of pain and swelling in both of his wrists after falling from a tree he was climbing. Thankfully with the help of our generous donors we were able to provide him with top medical care and provide some relief to his family who’s already struggling financially on an unstable income. Irfan’s father is a day laborer and his mother is a housewife who stays at home looking after her five other children. Without support from our clinic, Irfan’s family could not have afforded to pay for his medical expenses. Our physician referred him to a specialist where his x-ray showed a fracture of the left wrist. SHINE helped cover the cost of his visit and the necessary medications and supplies amounting to about $9.00. Please continue to help patients like Irfan by supporting SHINE Humanity in its endeavor of helping people who are most in need.

Thank You.

Medical Camp in Gharo

Dear Friends;

Skin diseases are one of the commonest conditions treated by the physicians at our Gharo facility. On Sunday May 17th, SHINE Humanity organized a Free Skin (Dermatology) Camp held by Skin Specialist, Dr. Seema Sherali of Karachi.

A total of 149 patients were treated for common skin conditions such as fungal infections, rashes and scabies.                  An unusual case was a young farm worker, Iqbal,  whose foot was injured by a tractor who had developed maggots Inside his wounds because he was too poor to pay for a doctor’s visit. He was referred to the surgeon at Aasra Society’s clinic who cleaned and dressed the wound and advised medications and daily dressing. He has been visiting the SHINE clinic daily and his wound is healing nicely.

The colorful clothings of these patients belied their true poverty and the reason for festering wounds in some of the patients. All patients were treated free of charge and given a supply of the required medicines.

Dr. Sherali also trained SHINE’s physicians in recognizing and treating these simple and complex cases using cost-effective measures. Eye Specialist, Dr. Shehla Dareshani and SHINE’s Director, Dr. Seema Hassan, also attended the camp.

Around 28,000 patients have been treated at our three project sites this year. We thank you for your support in helping the most needy.
