AIMS USA (www.abaseen.org) is a non-profit organization registered with IRS, USA. It is established in support of Sugar (Diabetes) Hospital in Pakistan that treats poor patients.
Pakistan is a country blessed with tremendous promise and resources but is tested with towering health-related challenges. Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, a province of Pakistan, is considered one of the poorest areas in the world. That is where Sugar Hospital operates as a charity to help the most downtrodden and poor people of the society.
Sugar Hospital offers treatment to diabetic patients, raises awareness about prevention and reaches out to remote villages to offer free health clinics.
In the last four years, since 2016, Sugar Hospital has served more than 51,000 men, women and children, suffering from diabetes and carried out over 200,000 laboratory tests for doctors to make correct diagnosis and advise appropriate treatment. Besides, the team has served more than 77,000 patients in the community by reaching out for education and awareness among the people at risk in 64 union councils, treated patients in 18 village camps sponsored by donors belonging to those villages across 8 districts in Pakistan.
Need for a Specialist
While a lot of these services are offered by volunteers, some operations must be run by paid full-time staff. That is where quality care, accountability and responsibility come in.
Sugar Hospital has medical doctors on its staff; however, it does not have an accredited subject specialist known as an endocrinologist. While such specialists have private practices, these poor patients cannot afford to pay their fee. As a result, some of their illnesses get so complicated they end up lose their lives or limbs.
We strongly feel the poor patients deserve to be seen by a specialist when they visit a Hospital so they can get quality care. Unfortunately, Sugar hospital currently cannot afford the salary of such a specialist. Typical salary of retaining a specialist doctor for a decent time is around Pakistani Rupees 500,000 (5 Lakh)/ month.
Therefore, AIMS USA has decided to provide the patients of Sugar Hospital with the quality care they deserve. It wants to raise $36,000 which will be used to fund salary of a specialist for one year.
With the help of Allah SWT, and generous donations of some of you, we have already raised over $26,000 (initially requested). We want to raise an additional $14,000 to further the village reachout program provided through Sugar Hospital and staffing/ training needs associated with village visits. Please help us riase $40,000. Every donation counts!
We hope the specialist will make a tremendous difference in the following ways. This person will lead the hospital’s team, satisfy patients’ needs, provide training to medical staff, mentor and supervise the teams serving the remote villages and develop the hospital’s facility to a decent quality level.
Currently in KPK for a population of over 35 million, there are hardly over a dozen such specialized doctors available. The most significant difference such a specialist will make in Sugar Hospital and its outreach programs is training of the doctors serving in the remote villages from where poor patients are unable to come to urban specialists and facilities.
On behalf of AIMS USA, we humbly ask for your donation that will help us meet our target ($40,000 by end of November 2020).
How can you help?
In addition to donating, please share this appeal with your friends and family. Whatever amount anyone can donate will make a difference.
