Every year, Muslims across the globe fast in the holy month of Ramazan; this is a time to reflect, to understand the hardships of the ones around you, their trials and tribulations.
Fatima Memorial Hospital opened its doors in 1977 to provide healthcare to patients without discrimination from all walks. Today almost 82 percent of the patients are treated free of cost or at subsidized rates. We see patients who come to the hospital with not even enough resources to go back home or even afford a cup of tea.
As 2016 begins we must remind ourselves of the hardships faced by our fellow human beings will fall in June. The fasts are long and its the summer very hot. As per the previous Ramazan where patient families faced issues for meals due to economic reasons.
Arshad, one of the patient's family member last yeat said that in the sweltering heat , the cold juice and food offered was a relief and we pray to God that the hospital can keep doing this
It has always been tradition at Fatima Memorial Hospital to provide meals for to all poor patient and their family members who are present at the hospital (FMH) during Ramadan. The patients admitted at the hospital and their families can’t bear the extra costs and for us they are our guests and to be cared for.
However, with each passing year the patient number grows, costs rise and it is becoming difficult to continue with our tradition.
Today, we ask for your help to continue with our traditions set 38 years ago.
