Islamabad

February 9, 2018

Islamabad: A free medical camp was organised by the Shifa Foundation in Jinnah Super Market here for the people unable to afford medical checkups.

The services provided there included tests for diabetes, blood pressure and general check-up. More than 100 people including women, children and elderly, benefitted from the camp. “We must realise that even in the posh areas, such communities exist who do cannot bear the charges of medical checkups, let alone treatment. Through this initiative, the Shifa Foundation is making basic health services available to such people,” said Adil Rauf, a representative of the Shifa Foundation.

The event was organised in collaboration with the Jinnah Super Market Traders Welfare Association through the support of its president, Qazi Ilyas, and general secretary Abdur Rehman Siddiqui.

The Shifa Foundation regularly organises such events to make basic health services accessible to all. It puts special emphasis on mother and child centered programmes to improve the status of health, nutrition and basic human rights among marginalised communities across Pakistan.
