MOIN AKHTAR MEMORIAL HOSPITAL
The Deen Trust Moin Akhtar Memorial Hospital is free of charge to approximately 60,000 people. The Memorial Hospital is pivoted to save lives not just for patients going through various ailments, but also through its maternity ward by providing the community with state-of-the-art medical facilities, as well as improving access to health facilities overall.
A Facility Made to Heal
Catering to a population that earns less than USD $1 per day, the institution aims to put safety in front of finances, helping reduce mother and child fatality rates in the region. Quality doctors, nurses and dispensaries provided by the hospital aim to reduce unnecessary procedures such as C-sections for profit gain.
The hospital inaugurated its first phase – an outpatient treatment department – in 2011, with wings being added to the 10,000 sq. ft. facility. The hospital has been treating approximately 100 patients a day, providing them with free medicine and skilled consultancies. With the support of our generous donors, the hospital has been providing the best available medicine and services to its valued patients.
Deen Trust will be reopening its fully-equipped maternity ward in late 2019, a project the Trust will be dedicating all its resources towards.
Donations will go a long way, not only to fund this wing but also to keep providing quality health services to those who need it.
An approximate value of £3,000 per month is needed to keep the Maternity ward operational.
