Access to medical care is a huge issue for impoverished families globally. Half of the world’s population lacks access to basic health treatments. Less than 50% of the Pakistan’s population are covered by medical insurance and even if they’re covered, the standard of medical care is relatively low. Many hospitals struggle to provide efficient care due to the lack of resources and equipment available. This issue has been exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic, pushing hospitals to their limits. As a result, many doctors in Pakistan have looked elsewhere for work. This has left many hospitals understaffed, with no equipment to help patients.
Although child mortality has significantly decreased in the last two decades, around 5.9m children still die annually from treatable problems such as diarrhoea and pneumonia. In addition to this, around 5 million people die due to a lack of medical equipment. We want to make medical care accessible to families who need it most. Nobody should have to die from an illness that could be easily cured. To support local hospitals, we donate equipment and funds to ensure doctors and nurses have the necessary tools to look after their patients. In the US alone, around 5.9 million tons of medical waste is produced each year. Much of this could be recycled and sent to countries that need it most- instead of ending up in landfill.
By supporting local hospitals, they can purchase the medicine needed to help patients. They also have the equipment needed to provide adequate care and ensure patients recover without any long term problems.
This equipment saves the lives of thousands of people every year. Any size donation will make a huge difference.
