Nourishing Lives - A Plea for Increased Support
In the face of rising patient numbers and economic challenges, Fatima Memorial Hospital (FMH) endeavors to provide free meals to underprivileged patients and their attendants.

FMH extends healthcare to 82% of patients either free of cost or at subsidized rates, but many belong to deprived communities unable to afford basic necessities, including food. The hospital faces the challenge of providing meals to patients and attendants in need.
Operating with a mission to provide quality healthcare to all, FMH seeks to alleviate the suffering of destitute patients by providing free meals to their attendants.
Pakistan's 2018 Global Food Security Index ranking of 77th out of 112 countries and the second-highest hunger score (32.6) in Asia underline the need for sustained efforts. FMH aims to improve Pakistan's hunger score in the long run.
