Ensuring a Healthy Start and Continued Care
A Patient with his Father
Dear GlobalGiving Donors,
The last quarter of 2021, going all the way into 2022 was dedicated to the completion of a new medical block at our Medicare Hospital - Noor Elahi Branch. This block, named Siddiqui Medical Block, has been primarily sponsored by a major donor, along with contributions from a number of our generous supporters and also through a grant from two Netherlands based organizations, Wilde Ganzen and Stichting Equator Medicare.
With this new medical block, we will further expand the scope of our services, including specialist pediatric care. Additionally, we will be able to reach out to a greater number of underprivileged people.
We thank each one of you for believing in us and supporting us on every step of this journey

Completion of Siddiqui Medical Block at Medicare Hospital - Noor Elahi Branch
The dream of extending Medicare Hospital - Noor Elahi Branch has finally turned into reality. The task was daunting, as the COVID pandemic was at its peak and funding seemed to be a major problem. But our resolve did not weaken and we remained steadfast in our goal of completing this project. With a few delays due to COVID lockdowns, we have finally been able to complete the building for its inauguration on 5th March, 2022.
In this new building, there will be specialist clinics, including Pediatric, Orthopedic, Hepatitis Treatment Clinic, and Vacinnation Room. It also has a pent house for housing a doctor on a 24 hours availability basis.
Medical Dispensary - Outreach Program
Medicare's outreach initiative, a mobile clinic at Sharakpur, Punjab, has now completed its first year of running. Through this project, we have been able to improve healthcare greatly in an area where poverty prevails and access to medical care is greatly limited
A major orthopedic surgery was carried out at Medicare Hospital - Noor Elahi Branch, in the month of December. The patient, a female from the Okara district of Punjab, had spinal cord compression, which was causing acute pain and discomfort.
Our experienced orthopedic surgeon, Dr Saleem, carried out this risky procedure with adeptness and care.
Since the surgery, the patient has recovered fast, and is now on her feet
A Healthy Start, with a Healthy Mother
There have been many instances of high risk pregnancies being referred to Medicare Hospitals towards the end of the third trimester. These are particularly difficult situations to handle, as it is a matter of saving the life of both the mother and child, without the ability to go for preemptive care.
A patient experiencing placenta previa was brought to Medicare Hospital - Badami Bagh. She had a seizure, and her critical condition drove us to save her without a second to spare. Thankfully she survived and delivered a healthy baby boy. Her family was very grateful to Medicare for giving her a new life, and her baby a healthy start.
COVID Vaccination Drive
COVID vaccination has been successfully carrying on at both Medicare Hospital - Badami Bagh and Medicare Hospital - Noor Elahi Branch. We are very pleased that our initiative of educating all those visiting our hospitals about the importance of getting vaccinated is convincing them to get vaccinated to protect themselves and others.
