Rehman Foundation motto
(Written By, Shazreh Shahzad student of Mass Communication at BeaconHouse National University – BNU)
The Rehman Foundation is an organization that is around for the
last 16 years, an organization that is helping people who are in need
of dialysis for free. The NGO has multiple centers in different cities
that are operative and are always there to help the helpless people
when it comes to health issues making them one of the finest in
persistently providing the best health services in Pakistan.
Pakistan is the country with the highest rate of kidney failures
Moreover, it isn’t very known to people, and the purpose of writing
this article is so that the readers can get informed about a very
blessed NGO that helps the needy when it comes to diseases.
Pakistan is one of the countries with the highest rate of kidney
failures and due to poverty people are unable to get a cure but as
mentioned earlier, the Rehman foundation aims to put in an effort
to prevent this.
How difficult it is to operate a dialysis center with free
Just a week ago, I had the honor of speaking with the chairman of
the foundation, Dr. Waqar Ahmed where he talked about starting
the foundation in the first place and talked about what other cities
other than Lahore his foundation is operating in. He continued
telling how difficult it is to operate a dialysis center with free
accommodations with almost 150 patients being treated for free
and yet another 100 who are waiting to get cured.
Spreading awareness among people
He went along with why people have this problem and why in
Pakistan is the biggest problem health-wise, it’s because people
don’t do their tests to find out what is wrong with them since they
don’t keep up to look after their bodies. Doctor Waqar Ahmed is on
the urge of spreading awareness among people to get tested and
be aware of the problems they may adopt later.
Any health issue that can be a problem
So it is very important to him that people who have the symptoms
should get tested immediately before the health gets worse since
dialysis is very expensive. The foundation is also keen to give
lectures to people on how to take care of their bodies and stay safe
from any health issue that can be a problem. When asked why he
started the organization in the first place, he said that he was
motivated by a young boy who died due to kidney failure because
of lack of resources and his parents didn’t know what to do since
they couldn’t afford it.
Operative centers in other big and small cities
And to start the foundation he spent money of his own to get the
machines and maintain a relationship of trust with others who were
worthy of giving donations to get more resources that could be
enough to help with the cure. As time went by him along with the
the exceptional effort of his team members of the NGOs was able to
open operative centers in other big and small cities so people in
other cities don’t have the pressure to travel when they have the
opportunity to get cured at a center in their own city.
