Hope for the Future
HOPE's Healthcare Network
Since 1997, HOPE has been chipping away at the abominable health issues facing Pakistan through a network of hospitals, maternal and child centers, basic health units, and mobile health units. In 2017, we were able to treat 552,000 impoverished men, women, and children for free or minimal cost at all our health facilities:
As of 2018, HOPE has established four charitable hospitals in Pakistan: one in Karachi, one in Thatta, one in Zia Colony, and one in Sujawal. Each hospital is complete with surgical facilities, a neonatal intensive care unit, and labor and delivery rooms. In 2017, over 552,000 patients were seen altogether at all four hospitals. Combined, over 10,500 surgeries were conducted and over 6,800 babies were delivered.
Maternal and Child
HOPE has six maternal and child health centers (MCHCs) in Pakistan: one in Manzoor Colony, one in Mujahid Colony, one in Bilal Colony, one in Korangi 5, one in Azad Kashmir, and one in Chikaar, Azad Kashmir. MCHCs support women’s obstetric and gynecological services, prenatal care, and family planning services. Emphasis is placed upon promoting safe deliveries and reducing maternal and infant mortality due to pregnancy-related complications. Yearly, over 80,000 total mothers and children are seen at all three facilities.
Basic Health Units
HOPE has one basic health unit (BHU) located in Hub, Balochistan. Altogether, it provides emergency services, outpatient services, maternal checkups, and pediatric care to over 40,000 patients per year, mainly women and children.
Mobile Health Units
HOPE is able to access 30 villages in the outskirts of Karachi via two mobile health units (MHUs). Doctors travel from Karachi to staff the MHUs on a rotational basis. In 2017, both MHUs provided over 70,000 patients total (mainly women and children) access to basic medical care and emergency services.
