Securing a Healthier Future! Posted on January 5, 2019
Thar Foundation in line with its vision of providing quality healthcare under the UN Sustainable Development Goal 3: Good Health & Well-Being is on a mission to make Islamkot a model tehsil in terms of its health statistics and indicators. To this effect, we are building the Thar Foundation hospital – a state of the art 250-bed hospital – in collaboration with the Indus Hospital.
Guddi Bheel, a lovely 5-year old girl, would play, run, and walk to school with her friends. She enjoyed every bit of her life with friends in kindergarten at Thar Foundation School. One day while enjoying a ride on a swing at her home, she fell off and received an unfortunate spinal cord injury, making it hard for her to walk, and causing excessive pain in her back and neck.
- Unable to bear expenses of the treatment and to avoid a potential health issue, her father contacted Thar Foundation for support through the Foundation’s flagship Marvi Mother & Child Clinic.
- After careful examination of Guddi and analysis of her case, the Marvi clinic staff referred her to one of the best neurosurgeons in Karachi. The Thar Foundation’s team closely monitored the 3 month-long treatment with Guddi now able to walk and play with her friends at school.
- The Marvi Clinics opened by Thar Foundation are managed by the Indus Hospital and continue to provide access to free healthcare to the communities of Thar Block II, Gorani and adjoining areas covering a radius of almost 100 kilometres.
