Dear fellows, it is an honour for me to be the vice principal of Bhitai Dental & Medical College and to be associated with an organization that has been at the forefront for providing excellence in medical education in Pakistan.
Being a part of Bhitai Foundation, it was indeed our mission to improve the quality of life of our local communities, by enabling them to tackle their social needs and divisions. And it is absolutely without a doubt that the establishment of the Bhitai Welfare Hospital is an example of our prioritized commitment towards the achievement of our goal for serving humanity.
I believe Charities exist to create a better society. The range and scope of their work and the variety of people they help is amazing. Whether working locally, nationally or internationally they have a remarkable history of driving social change which is reflected all around us in the world we live in today.
Establishment of Bhitai Welfare Hospital is a small effort by Bhitai Foundation and the beginning of a highly demanded medical facility by the poor people living in the vicinity of Mirpur Khas city, including Thar, where people lack the basic necessity of life and are often affected by the natural disaster like drought. Thus, whilst demand for our support and services – which impact on the lives of the most disadvantaged people in our community – will increase, there is a tightening of the public and private resources available to support this work.
I must say, supporting small beginnings remains at the heart of what the Community Foundation does, including helping people on the margins, who often have no voice and little stake in mainstream society. Similarly, funding and supporting communities has meant liberating the talent, skills and resources of local people to tackle the problems that they experience on a daily basis.
The Bhitai Foundation may face many challenges for the establishment of this hospital, particularly during the current economic climate which impacts much more on families and communities in need, however we are committed, focused, fully prepared and a confident organization for tackling these challenges and are able to take advantages of financial opportunities.
If you would like to become involved in this important work of our foundation, either as a donor or as a volunteer, we would be delighted to hear from you.
