THEN AND NOW…

By no means shall you attain righteousness unless you give freely of that which you love, and whatever you give, Allah knows it well. (Qur’an 3:92)

In 2010 we opened a Diagnostic Centre and Clinic in Karachi offering radiology services, pharmacy services and oncology services to local cancer patients. We soon found ourselves unable to cope with demand and decided to build a new hospital to better serve the community.

At one million square feet, our Karachi hospital will be double the size of our first hospital in Lahore, featuring 47 outpatient examination rooms, a 69-bed chemotherapy facility, 288 inpatient beds, 16 operation theatres, and 24 intensive care beds. It will also be fitted with the latest cutting-edge technology, such as advanced diagnostic facilities and innovative treatment planning and delivery systems.

Thanks to your support, in May 2023, we opened the doors of a new walk-in clinic to improve screening and triaging for local patients. Despite facing global challenges such as high inflation and disruptions in construction material supply chains, we were also able to achieve the following last year:

  • Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) ducting and insulation works in progress
  • Internal masonry and plaster works were completed partially
  • Flooring works at the ground and the first floors of the main building, and administration building are near completion
  • Mechanical, Electrical, and Plumbing (MEP) piping works, and cable laying within the buildings are in progress
  • External infrastructure development is also in progress
  • Water-proofing for the main building, waste drainage system, and roof waterproofing to begin soon

DID YOU KNOW…

Decades before becoming a philanthropist, our founder Imran Khan was a celebrated cricketer who led Pakistan to a historic victory in the 1992 Cricket World Cup. He donated his entire prize money, along with additional funds, to establish Pakistan’s first cancer hospital, Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital, in Lahore in 1994.

Oral cancer rates in Karachi are among the highest in the world, and there is also an increasing incidence of gastrointestinal tract cancer in the population. Our new hospital will offer specialist care to those living with these and other cancers in the region.

Karachi is the capital of the Sindh province and Pakistan’s largest, most populated city. Poverty is a major issue with over 40% of people living on less than 80 pence a day and 75% of those living in rural neighbourhoods nearby facing similar levels of deprivation. In these desperate times, crime is rampant and human life has little value; it is not uncommon for parents to abandon their children and for the sick to have little hope of survival.

Help us move one step closer to providing high-quality cancer treatment, free of charge, to the neediest in the community.

GIVE SADAQAH JARIYAH TO SHAUKAT KHANUM KARACHI

When a man dies, his good deeds come to an end except for three things: Sadaqah Jariyah [ceaseless charity]; a knowledge which [he has passed on and] is beneficial; or a virtuous descendant who prays for him. (Muslim)

Giving Sadaqah Jariyah to a hospital that provides healing is an excellent way to reap the benefits of our charity in this life and in the hereafter.

Many of us can’t afford to give much, that’s why we’re coming together to give what we can towards a big cause with perpetual blessings.

Unite with millions of others and become part of something truly special this year.
