What is HOPES

HELP OF PATIENTS IN EXIGENCY BY STUDENTS

HOPES is a non-political patient welfare organization managed solely by the undergraduate medical and dental students of Karachi Medical and Dental College (KMDC). Our services are designed to ensure availability of medicines and investigative facilities to underprivileged patients of Abbasi Shaheed Hospital. To date, HOPES has dispensed medicines worth more than 105 Million.






HOW WE STARTED

The main agenda of HOPES is the very core of helping the patients of Abbasi Shaheed Hospital. The whole idea goes back to the event when a patient lost his life just because he was unable to afford a 10 rupee injection to save his life. Hence, the students of the very first batch of KMDC took the initiative of founding this purely students based NGO HOPES. Therefore, till date we are still operating for the very core of our foundation and that is to arrange life saving medication for the long sufferers of ASH.

Vision

To make affordable healthcare accessible for all regardless of socioeconomic, religious and cultural standing.

Mission

HOPES is a mission driven by passionate, selfless individuals established with the intention of combating the lethal combination of poverty and ill health faced by developing countries like Pakistan by providing health services to every social class with equity.
