FMIC patient who got support from patient welfare
FMIC is product of a four-way unique partnership between two governments and two international NGOs including the Aga Khan Development Network (AKDN).
In the Covid-19 era FMIC was faced with a number of challenges due to fear of cross contamination issues of mobility and high pressure on the already limited resources. Despite such challenges FMIC continued to dispense tertiary health care services to the people of Afghanistan as a safe haven. Besides that, FMIC introduced Covid-19 testing and treatment facility in a separate location away from the hospital. This strategy helped in serving the medical needs of general population as well as Covid-19 infected or suspected patients. Another big challenge was scarcity of medical supplies due to border closures and restrictions on travelling. FMIC team made its level best to cope with all challenges while continuing its services in diagnostics, inpatient and outpatient. FMIC patient welfare program continued its support to needy patients despite all the challenges narrated above. The pressure on patient welfare increased more due to deteriorating economic situation in the country.
FMIC ensures that its quality services are accessible to all in a resource-blind fashion. Through the patient welfare program, FMIC has so far supported patients in need with a financial impact of over 40 Million USD. The journey continues.
Your little contribution is a ray of hope for many Afghans who have difficulties accessing a high quality healthcare facility mainly due to lack of money. FMIC makes sure that your generous contribution is spent in the most appropriate manner to support those patients who come from very weak financial backgrounds.
On a daily basis, FMIC ensures that no patient leaves the hospital untreated because of lack of money. For many patients, even a $10 expense is an obstacle to healthcare. Envision a child or mother suffering from life-threatening diseases in an impoverished and war-affected zone. Imagine that just a few dollars contributed by you can help save lives and improve quality of life for many. For example, $10 will pay for an initial visit to a doctor, $15 will pay for one-night stay of a patient in general ward, $65 will pay for one night stay of a patient in the Intensive Care Unit. We do appreciate your continued support and cooperation!
