By the Grace of All Mighty Allah Sahara for Life Trust has continued to provide quality care to all segments of society. Though year 2010 proved to be quite difficult for Pakistan and the devastation wreaked by monsoon floods and its aftermath was unfathomable and impacted every individual and institution in the country. Yet Sahara for Life Trust was also affected and our focus during this troubled time was to manage our resources prudently and keep hope alive for thousands of poor patients being treated at Sughra Shafi Medical Complex NAROWAL.
I am pleased to share with you that because of your faith and enduring support for our institution we have started constructing Sahara Medical College at NAROWAL. The income generated through this venture will be reinvested in Sughra Shafi Medical Complex to make it more sustainable. Sahara medical college is a project with the aim to cater the health care needs of remote underprivileged areas by educating health care professionals to the highest international standards and stimulating innovation through research, disseminate, and apply knowledge to improve health and reduce the burden of illness.
The cost of providing medical care in accordance with international standards is continuously on the rise and the annual budget is 240 million per year, a number of new equipments and resources are required for the better dispensation of health services at hospital.
In the end, I am really indebted to all the donors both individual and institutional for reposing their trust in Sahara for life Trust. I am especially thankful to all Board of Trustees for their timely guidance and continuous support. Finally I am extremely grateful and proud of the dedication and hard work being rendered by all the staff working in Sahara for Life Trust, who worked tirelessly round the clock to accomplish our mission.
