List of Top Organizations for Free Cardiac Surgery of Poor Patients

The Pakistani economy cannot be classified as a developed one. It is a struggling state and has been in this condition since its inception in 1947. Although things have improved relatively, it cannot yet be said that the country has been relieved of all its burdens and the problems have been completely alleviated. This can be attributed to many diseases that have plagued the state since its birth, including high levels of corruption and lack of interest in infrastructural development. Because of these reasons, several sectors have suffered greatly and have failed to achieve modern standards. One of these departments is that of healthcare facilities, which sadly stands at a stage so poor that the World Health Organization ranked it 122 out of 180 on its performance report. Despite this, the government further reduced the budget allocated to the furthering of the healthcare industry’s interests, exhibiting the state’s uninterested in the matter.

However, all of this does not mean that all Pakistanis are unable to access modern, life-saving medication and equipment. It is one of the saddest truths of this country that despite having some of the best doctors and resources, the majority of the nation stands deprived and unattended during their ailment times. Treatment opportunities are available to the financially elite and are refused to the poverty-stricken masses. Consequently, several other issues arise. It was estimated recently that around 30- 40 % of all deaths that occur in Pakistan annually occur due to some form of cardiovascular diseases. It is said that each hour, around 46 people die at the hands of heart attacks, and this number keeps on climbing higher. While these statistics may be attributed to unhealthy lifestyles adopted by many people and severe malnutrition, it can also not be ignored that the inability of the health sector to aid the poor is also one of the most important factors. If timely and free treatment be provided to the economically disadvantaged people, these statistics could drop significantly.

The things that have been mentioned above highlight a very alarming situation. It is something that must be dealt immediately and efficiently. Indeed, a country can never prosper if the people who bear its weight on their shoulders are ill. A population that is not healthy and ails at the hands of diseases that deprive it of its energy, is a population that fails to rise above problems that afflict it. But the governmental inadequacy has been very evident in this matter. Therefore, a few individuals and non-governmental organizations came together and formed facilities that could care for those suffering from cardiovascular diseases and provide them with cardiac surgeries. These organizations have focused their energies and efforts towards poor patients who do not have the means to finance their treatments. By providing them with treatment, that too at zero cost, these groups have helped hundreds of people throughout the country. Their work is notable , noble and deserves appreciation.

Currently, many such organizations are actively supporting individuals with cardiac problems. The list below identifies the top few of them.

In 2005, the Sarwar family struggled to find quality healthcare for a sick family member. In that same year, a devastating earthquake shook regions of Pakistan and many families were left without basic supplies and healthcare services. Throughout the relief effort, the Sarwar’s became one of the largest donors to citizens in the region and in 2013; they expanded our efforts internationally to reach a wider scope of people.

By supporting international projects through in-kind and financial donations, they aim to build more sustainable and productive futures for vulnerable populations.

It is truly remarkable how far technology has advanced. The diseases that were once regarded as untreatable are now treated with utmost precision. Millions of people, every year, take advantage of these resources. However, we must understand that this advancement is not specifically for those who can afford it. Most of the world’s population, and specifically that of Pakistan (because it is a developing economy), lives under circumstances of poverty and financial despair. Given this, it is clear that they cannot even afford three meals a day; hence, expecting them to be able to support their treatments, which costs several thousand, is absurd. However, it does not mean in any way that they should be denied medical support. Basic health facilities are the right of every man, woman and child that lives on this planet. If, because of unfavourable conditions, they are stuck in conditions where they cannot help themselves, it falls upon us to help them, as they are also part of our community. Therefore, we must join hands and help the aforementioned organizations in whatever capacities we can and help achieve a healthier and prosperous Pakistan.
