Healthcare & Health Services
Salam Charity is coming together to provide healthcare and other health services to individuals around the world living in abject poverty. We are working together to aid individuals with no access to primary healthcare due to financial and geographical barriers.
Shifa Clinic – Case Study
The rural areas of Zakigonj has an estimated population of 150,000 and is one of the poorest regions of the Sylhet Division. With no access to primary healthcare, they must travel miles to the nearest Upazila Clinic for basic medical needs.
Due to this remoteness of the villages in Sylhet, maternal healthcare is completely inaccessible meaning that 75% of all births in rural Bangladesh do not have a skilled attendant during delivery.
Shifa Clinic has been built to provide healthcare and health services to impoverished families in Zakigonj. This clinic will help over 1,300 people per year.
Access to healthcare for all…
Salam Charity works to provide free healthcare to impoverished families around the world. Through clinics, we provide free medicine, vaccinations and immunization, family planning and counselling. This clinic will help over 13,000 people every year.
A lifeline for communities…
Professionally trained doctors and nurses will be available to offer free expert treatment and advice to individuals (in need), providing a lifeline for thousands of people living in abject poverty.
