Clinic and Community Center

Clinic and Community Center

GHRF are funding a medical community centre in Lahore in the village of Bedia which has a population of between 10,000 and 12,000 people.

The centre will have a medical clinic which will be free at the point of use for those living in the village and a community centre on top of the clinic which will be used to train people in life style changing skills.

The cost to construct the community centre is £16,000. Please donate as much as possible so that we can finish the clinic as soon as possible.

Cataract Eye Operations

Cataracts occur when there is a build-up of protein in the lens that makes it cloudy. This prevents light from passing clearly through the lens, causing some loss of vision. Since new lens cells form on the outside of the lens, all the older cells are compacted into the centre of the lens resulting in the cataract. Over the next 20years, it is estimated that the world’s population will increase by about one third.

This growth will occur predominantly in developing areas. During the same period, the numbers of people over 65 years of age will more than double. This ‘‘greying’’ of the population will occur in both developing and developed countries. If nothing else alters, these demographic changes will lead to a doubling in the amount of cataract, visual morbidity, and need for cataract surgery. The current 20million people with severely reduced vision of 3/60or worse as a result of cataract will have swelled to 40million by the year 2020. (World Health Organisation) GHRF are organisation in partnership with a local medical centre in Fasalabad to conduct 200 eye operations in the coming months at cost of £25 per eye. Please donate generously towards this project.

Living with a disability can be difficult enough as it is; add poverty to the equation and the hardships increase. In world dominated by developing countries, disabled individuals often face serious adversity. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), at least 81 million people in Africa alone are affected by some form of disability. The fact is that in sub-Saharan Africa specifically – the majority of disabled people have inadequate or no access to healthcare, rehabilitation, support and assistance, education, or employment.

GHRF have over the last year provide wheelchairs and tricycles in Pakistan to people with disability to help them in improving their quality of life.

You can donate to improve someone’s life by donating £60 for a Wheelchair or £100 for a Tricycle.
