At least 50% of the world’s population lives without access to essential healthcare
With over half of the world’s population living without access to essential healthcare services, expectant mothers and children are facing real problems. We firmly believe healthcare should not be dependent on how much you earn. Despite the global progress in reducing child mortality rates over the past few decades.
An estimated 5.2 million children under age five died in 2019 – more than half of those deaths occurred in sub-Saharan Africa. Improving child survival remains a matter of urgent concern. Children continue to face widespread regional and income disparities in their chances of survival.
Since 2019, Al-Fikr has organised 12 medical camps and treated over 60,000 patients through the Medical Aid project.
In rural areas, there are often no facilities available for basic healthcare needs. The few facilities available are under-staffed and mismanaged.
Due to such circumstances, the poor living in these remote locations go on suffering from easily preventable diseases.
Al-Fikr sponsors health camps in such remote locations and arranges for medical teams, medical supplies and medication to benefit the poor. Patients identified at the medical camps who need more in-depth treatment are taken care of by our Medical experts.
Healthcare - £300
Wheelchairs - £80
Millions of people are currently facing severe disability discrimination across the globe, especially in developing countries where there is a lack of education on disability. Those suffering from physical disabilities do not have the resources to buy wheelchairs that are appropriate for their needs.
Your support can aid people that are currently suffering and help give them the help that they deserve.
In order to combat the issue of disability, we launched the Wheelchair campaign, underneath our broad medical aid projects. In total, we’ve given 100 wheelchairs to the elderly, the sick and those with disabilities such as paralysis or birth defects. By donating wheelchairs to those who are suffering from the most severe physical conditions, including those having been involved in traumatic accidents, we enable individuals to continue with their day-to-day activities.
