Our first project is the construction of a purpose built free welfare hospital in Sukho, Pakistan, a rural village in the Punjab.
The construction commenced in April 2010 and is well on the way to completion. It has been funded by personal donations from the founders of the charity and also from generous donations by the public. By providing a primary care service we will be able to provide healthcare for the majority of people, people who normally would have to resort to costly, and often unnecessary, specialist healthcare.
Our hospital will allow the public to receive healthcare that will be free at the point of delivery. It will provide primary care services, a minor injuries and medical emergencies unit, and a birthing centre. In the long term we will also provide an inpatient service, along with an operating theatre for minor surgery, with the capacity to cope with more major surgery from visiting surgical teams.
We will also provide an outpatient facility and invite medical healthcare professionals to provide consultancy.
The hospital will be run by a core team that will include doctors, nurses, and administration staff. The extra services will be provided by volunteers, namely doctors, nurses and allied health professionals from Europe and other well developed nations.
