Abid’s Story

Little Abid was brought to this clinic with a complaint of flu and fever. The youngest of three children and the apple of his family’s eye, he was diagnosed with viral infection and given appropriate medicines free of cost. The doctor asked his mother to bring him to the clinic for a follow-up visit after three days. His sisters Zulekha and Rabia had visited the clinic last week with the same complaint and were feeling much better now. Since its inception in 2013, over 30,000 children have been treated at this facility entirely free of cost. In any given month, this clinic sees over 1,100 children suffering from illnesses stemming from a lack of hygiene, nutrition, and preventive care.
