Clean water availability is an important inequity rural communities in underdeveloped countries face. The health of these communities is closely tied to the ability to access clean water and is seen by SHINE Humanity as one of the keys to transforming healthcare. To address this issue, we have set up RO plants at Mirpur Khaas and Sajjawal. There is also a plant at Mirpur Sakro which is located right next to our clinic in the same location. By providing clean water to the patients and nearby residents in one of the poorest regions in the country, we are ensuring that our approach to healthcare is holistic and goes beyond just consultations and medications. More of these units (clinic + RO plants) are planned in the months ahead.
Helping Babies Breathe (HBB) is a neonatal resuscitation curriculum developed on the premise that assessment at birth and simple newborn care can prevent infant mortality. This project, spearheaded by a SHINE humanity advisor has helped train midwives and nurses in Karachi and Lahore. With your help, we aim to take this program to every major city in the country.
SHINE humanity provides the training mannequins which are handed over to the midwifes or to the hospital where training is being conducted so that they can be used to train further medical professionals.
We have trained more than 2,700 medical professionals with over a 100 master trainers. This is a program that saves lives.
In April 2021 Mumtaz and Munawar Haider began sponsorship of this clinic and the clinic has been named Zia Abbas Memorial Clinic in memory of their son. SHINE Humanity is able to treat an average 50 patients per day at the clinic.
