Since 1998, the Muazzam Ali Shaheed Welfare Trust has established itself as a recognised charity organisation in the Jhelum district of Pakistan. The founder of the trust, Dr. Yousaf Akhtar, is cherished by the social welfare community in Jhelum and Rawalpindi-Islamabad because of his social work.
The trust has created a welfare programme for the poor without any discrimination of gender, colour or religion. We strive to grow by carrying forward a greater cause; to serve the deprived and destitute people of Jhelum and adjoining areas.Donate Now or contact us for further details
This 60 bed state of the art hospital was desperately needed to save thousands of lives. Jhelum and the surrounding areas now have a hospital that has two operation theatres and a full high tech laboratory to improve any future research.
Pursuing a dream and making it a reality.. A noble mans vision in the memory of his son, Captain Muazzam Ali Shaheed & also the founder of the trust.
Dr. Major Yusuf Akthar Cpt. Muazzam Ali (1973 – 1995)
Thank you to all the donators and volunteers, we can now help save and improve lives daily as our hospital has the following sectors and services; Gynaecology, labour and delivery, general surgery, Paediatrics and Neonatal ICU, out-patients, intensive care unit (ICU), radiology and ultrasound, pathology laboratory, pharmacy and central oxygen system. As well as patient wards and private rooms for longer stays, a staff hostel, a cafeteria and a prayer area for all religions.
The hospital provides three different payment plans to avoid discrimination and ensure everyone is cared for and gets the medical attention required. Firstly, all medical treatments are 100% free for the people that fall into the poor and less fortunate category. To ensure this plan is not abused everyone must apply for a health card issued by the hospital, and agree to regular checks by our certified staff such as house visits.
Secondly, our middle class category, this is for people that have some source of income for their families, but would struggle to pay for medical treatment and attention. Again regular checks would be carried out and the hospital would give a discounted price for medicine and treatment dependant on the financial situation.
Finally, the people that have a good income and can support their families comfortably, all treatments and medicine is charged at 100%. This then also provides a little income for the hospital.
Al Qasim is a school for special children. It was founded again by Dr major Yousaf and his cousin Sajida Begum from UK in 1987. The school is equipped with high tech equipment to help the children with different type of exercises, physiotherapy, speech therapy, sports, education, handy work, arts and lots more.
The school has 120 plus children that have a pick & drop service. The school is provided with five ambulances to pick and drop off each day. All our special children are very well loved and looked after. The school provides light snack each day for the kids and uniforms are also provided to each and every child and polite help both financially and physically is provided to all the parents of our special children for everyday essentials. Tributes to our lovely highly qualified staff, who do a wonderful job in caring, for these children more then they care for their own. With the dedication and motivation of the schools staff and these wonderful children, the school has won numerous medals in Shanghai Olympics and has found employment for our children.
The aim and purpose of this school is to help securing a brighter future for these children who have been neglected by the society due to their special needs. Again a huge thanks to all our kind donors, without your help none of this would have been possible. By you donating generously we can keep helping these wonderful children blossom & help them stand on their own feet financially and mentally.
The UK Trust has volunteered to look after these children with their everyday essentials, from health care, food, books, uniform, toys and so much more. All kids go through a vital health check every month at Muazzam Ali Shaheed Hospital, to ensure their healthy growth.
As this is a fairly new project undertaken by the UK Trust and is growing very quickly, our vision and aim is to Inshallah build hostels to provide permanent shelter for our orphans and also to replicate this model and structure for a girls orphanage.
My special tributes to Mr and Mrs Takee Shah for playing wonderful guardians for these truly wonderful kids and making these kids feel at home. They are truly playing the parental role and their love and affection for these kids is unmatchable. We plead that with your help and kind donations, we are able to fulfil our dream and vision for this project just as we have done with others.
Another great project by Dr major Yousaf and his cousin Mrs Sadiq Malik from UK, this institute is mainly for women and girls who are taught I.T, ,sewing, netting and other crafts, so our women and girls can be self sufficient. They are provided with complete training & qualifications to compete in the employment market or work from home.
This institute was opened in 2006 and has helped thousands of students with both I.T, sewing and netting skills. Very special thanks to Mr Majeed Malik brother of Mrs Sadiq Malik (Founder of the Institute) and our highly qualified staff that has worked immensely with thousands of students to archive their targets. Each student is issued with certificate after the completion of the course and gifted with a sewing machine or a computer to continue to work from home and make a decent affordable living.
The UK Trust is also currently looking after lots of students and widows with financial and education aspects, the trust is helping students from class one to higher education, as high as some students doing PHD. The trust vows to help all the talented students that are looking for higher education and help the widows that have no source of income.
The trust helps families with their daily expenses and essentials i.e. we have funded girls for their wedding ceremony and household utensils. The trust has helped thousands in emergencies and natural disaster, in the raining season a lot of the houses are damaged due to the poor built quality because of their financial situation, we are always there to help rebuild their houses ensuring and providing safer accommodation and shelter to the less fortunate. Thanks to the trusties of UK and our honourable donors who have soft heartedly helped provide for the needy yet over & over again.
Every year the trust distributes food packages in Ramadan and other events like Eid and Christmas. For many years now Muazzam Trust has provided food to thousands of families but that is just a drop in the ocean, as all across Pakistan severe cases of hunger and families struggling to provide even one meal a day for their family is all too normal. Just to put things in perspective, the amount we spend on food for one day here in UK, will last a family of four or five for the whole month supply of food. Everyone deserves to eat healthy and nutritious food, please we pledge that you carry on helping with your kind donations in order for us to feed more & more families every year.
We've installed & dug water wells, helping to fight the major outbreak of water-borne diseases like gastroenteritis, typhoid, cholera, dysentery and others, which have taken 100's of lives.
We have an institute providing free care for kids with special needs & disabilities, to help them develop physically and mentally.
We can provide free healthcare treatment and medication to the poor and needy, covering all areas of healthcare.
Education is a very important part of life. We help children set off on the right foot ensuring they have a brighter future and means of providing for themselves and their families.
We help & support orphanage's assisting them with educational needs, health care, nutritious food, shelter and most importantly love and affection that they deserve.
We have provided over 100 small businesses with 100% interest free loans, to create a career and living for them & their families.
Every year during Ramadan we provide a family of 4 enough nutritional food to last them the entire month. We have provided food packages to hundreds of families every year.
Widowhood is a condition of extreme distress for women in Pakistan and similar countries, as very little help is provided by the government. We provide widows with support & financial help by means of monthly stipends.
Heart melting & very sad but a true story.. Recently a mother came to Muazzam Hospital with her three children. All three children of hers are suffering from Cataract problem. The mother has to sell her house to afford the boys one eye surgery. She was in tears when she arrived at the hospital as she couldn't even pay her bus fair. The eye specialist at Muazzam hospital examined all three of her children.
After discussing with Management the Muazzam Hospital decided In sha Allah to bear all the costs from the treatment to surgery and will provide complete free medical care to all her children. The cost which has been estimated for all this procedure is from 80,000 to 90,000 PKR excluding further long term expenditures.
The Muazzam Hospital requests all the people around the world to come forward and give us their Zakats and Donations so we can fulfill our promises and hopes which we are giving to these helpless people. Every day Hospital Management is experiencing and facing similar situations and stories like these.
