Providing world class health care facility is an obligation on HOPE- an NGO in Pakistan. Having said that, it has three main secondary hospitals, two of which are in Karachi and one in Thatta. A number of medical and surgical facilities and services are provide some of which are as follows: Labor rooms, Maternity services, X-Ray, Blood Bank, Laboratory, Gynecologist Surgeries etc.

HOPE hospital in Bilal Colony is one of the very successful maternal and child health centers which treats as many as 26,400 patients. This town in korangi's industrial area takes privilege in benefitting from HOPE Bilal colony Maternal and Child Health (MCH). Women here are highly satisfied with the health services provided free of cost.

On the 12th of march, HOPE Bilal colony MCH celebrated its one year anniversary thanks to the generous Sabzwari family. HOPE- an NGO in Pakistan decorated the MCH and the first patient of the MCH was there to cut a cake along with HOPE team USA. Mr. Nasser, The president of HOPE, was thrilled to see the turnout of Bilal colony.

Subzwari family even circulated snacks and beverages to patients who were currently present there. Many of them were on drips but they rejoiced on the happy occasion.

HOPE, under the guidance Dr. Mubina Agboatwalla- a child specialist in Karachi, has been collaborating with national and international organizations such as: The Japanese Embassy, Procter and Gamble private Ltd and Human Concern International, (HCI). The funds donated from these organizations has helped immensely in establishing hospitals in Karachi, Thatta and MHU in Interior Sindh. Ultimately it is clear that HOPE is playing a vital role in developing society, where women and children are being cured of diseases.

Bilal Colony seemed to have been completely cut-off from the tide of heath measures being swept across the country after the UN warnings. Bilal Colony has estimate population of around 3 lac with some private clinics installed by the government but due to the shortage of funds and corruption in the government departments, the clinics have not been somewhat established. And that is where HOPE plays a vital role in rendering its services wherever needed, be it Bilal colony or any other underserved area.

Spreading joy among the people of Kashmir - DAY 3

Kashmir is a rural area where health and educational facilities are minimal or non-existent. It is a northern area of Pakistan located in the rocky mountain terrain. In these areas, establishing a school has met up with many hurdles. Hence HOPE- an educational NGO in Pakistan, with its determination to educate the underprivileged, has set up schools in Kashmir where the children receive education.

With the increasing reputation of the HOPE schools, more people are being encouraged to send their children to HOPE’s home school instead of making them victims of child labor.
The HOPE Team led by Dr Mubina Agboatwalla child specialist in Karachi, began their journey in the mountainous regions of Kashmir for monitoring the HOPE schools in AJK and KPK.

On the Third day of their visit, HOPE’s representatives went to three of the Goths: Dakhan Karbani educating 55 students, Parhor educating 66 children and lastly Dakhan Karbani educating 45 students.

HOPE team was warmly welcomed by students of HOPE schools where pupils performed various activities, role plays and skits. HOPE- a charitable NGO in Pakistan distributed cardigans, suits, toffees, snacks including: samosas, pakoras, juices and pastries.  

With the passion to serve humanity, HOPE reaches out to all those who no one reaches out to and has established several schools on different mountains of Kashmir. These schools are giving free and quality education to the poor children who cannot even afford to have a sweater or a single pair of socks to prevent themselves from cold even in extreme weather.

HOPE serves humanity in ways which are challenging boundaries of helping the poor in the health and education sector. HOPE with its vast assistance spreads joy amongst the people of Kashmir. HOPE’s representatives returned with heartfelt memories of the innocent faces of Kashmir, which they can hold onto for eternity.
