Seeds for Sahara is determined to provide free quality health care and a sanitary water source to impoverished and underserved communities of Pakistan.
The Focus of Our Efforts
Our major initiative, the Assa clinic, provides cost free medical services for patients afflicted by acute and chronic conditions while promoting preventative care and patient follow-ups. The clinic is geared for indigent people in the village of Sadwal Kalan, Punjab. Numerous inhabitants of the village do not have the financial means to obtain adequate access to health care due to the costly practices of the local clinics and the saturated government hospitals. We have and aim to continue to provide a free and sustainable medical clinic to the village that documents each incoming patient and provides thorough follow-up care to all those in need, in the heart of the village. In addition, patients receive free medications along with education on disease prevention to ensure quality long-term patient care. To date, we’ve served over 600 patients and provided them with the necessary medications for promising treatments.
Given the epidemiological studies mandating efforts to provide clean water supply, we have provided over 200 residents of the town with access to safe drinkable water. Through the construction of water wells and making them accessible to everyone in the area, these villagers are able to avoid contaminated water sources they’re accustomed to. We hope to further scale the project by constructing additional wells and establishing sustainable sanitation systems across the village. This effort is crucial to prevent the spread of communicable disease.
