Dear GlobalGiving Donors,

Since the start of this year, the world is fighting every day with this pandemic so that it can live another day. But belonging to a healthcare organization, our fight doubles because our focus is to keep our patients safe from Covid-19 and also provide them the best healthcare services.

As the world has started coming back to its normal routine, we are still making sure that our hospitals are secured from corona for all our patients. 

We pray for you and your loved ones safety and wish that we come out of these difficult times soon. 

Warm Regards,
Team Medicare Health Foundation (MHF) 

 

Activities Summary:

 

Emergency Response Cell

Medicare Health Foundation, considering Covid-19 situation, started providing Tele consultation and transporting oxygen cylinders to  the homes of patients with breathing issues arising from COVID-19. The purpose of providing such facility was that during the peak time of corona, bed occupancy in hospitals was full, and many COVID-19 patients requiring immediate care would be completely helpless. By giving them such service, we helped a number of COVID patients survive.  

Conducting Orthopedic Surgeries at Noor Medicare

Our main focus is to provide the best affordable healthcare services to the underprivileged. We are not only ensuring safe births but also conducting different surgeries, one of them being orthopedic surgeries. We are now successfully conducting orthopedic surgeries at our Noor Medicare Hospital, by highly reputed surgeons.

Disinfecting our Hospitals

Keep in view the Covid-19 situation; we are keenly focusing on keeping our hospitals corona free so that each patient is safe in our facility, and each mother and baby born is sound and healthy. We were awarded a grant by two Netherlands based organizations, Equator Medicare and Wilde Ganzen, for conducting a three month drive for making our hospitals secure against Corona virus threat.  

Our CEO to the Rescue

When we talk about an organization that is determined towards helping individuals and saving lives, we mean each person who is part of that cause. Our patient Abida was living in a village during her pregnancy and was expecting twins. Just a few days before her delivery, the village doctor told the parents-to-be that the babies are conjoined. The panicked parents did not know how they would afford treatment for their babies, and another disturbing thought was that no such facility was available in the village to cater to their medical needs. Our CEO, Ms. Rehana Baray, came to know about this patient and immediately sent an ambulance van from Noor Medicare Hospital to get the expecting mother admitted. After detailed examination, it was discovered that the babies are not conjoined. The mother underwent C-Section surgery and delivered healthy babies, thanks to the competency of the doctor and her staff at Noor Medicare Hospital. By His grace, both mother and babies are happy and safe now.

Meeting with Lady Health Workers to Ensure Safe Birth

Medicare held a meeting with Lady Health Workers (LHW) of the surrounding areas of our Badami Bagh Hospital. The purpose of the meeting was to impart information about our expert Gynecology and Obstetrics services, so they could refer expecting mothers to our hospital and help provide them a safe birth experience.

Free Antenatal Checkup

A free Antenatal checkup was organized at our Badami Bagh Hospital for the surrounding community. Our experienced Gynecologist, Dr. Shaista created awareness among patients about the importance of antenatal care and also attended the patients.

Polio Vaccine Camp

Every year, Medicare Health Foundation takes responsibility and arranges a Polio Vaccine Camp at its hospital. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, this year the vaccination campaign got delayed but once the situation got better, we organized a Polio vaccine camp ensuring adherence to COVID SOPs so that we can also contribute our services to eliminate this virus from its root.
