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 our Karachi Diagnostic Centre and Clinic, providing Radiology services, Pharmacy services and Oncology services, including a consultation clinic and chemotherapy bay to cancer patients in the region. Unfortunately, we soon found ourselves unable to cope with the increasing number of people who needed our help and agreed to build a new hospital to meet local demand.
At one million square feet, Shaukat Khanum Karachi 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. This hospital will also be outfitted with the latest cutting-edge technology, such as advanced diagnostic facilities and innovative treatment planning and delivery systems. With your help and support, we will be ready to open our doors to new patients in Sindh and Southern Balochistan this December.
Join us in the race to the finish line and give Sadaqah Jariyah to Shaukat Khanum Karachi. Sponsor 50 bricks for £30 or become a founding donor.SUPPORT OUR KARACHI HOSPITAL Become a Founding Member Donate Bricks
DID YOU KNOW…
Decades before he became a philanthropist, Imran Khan was a celebrated cricket icon who achieved a historic victory when he led the Pakistan team to win the 1992 Cricket World Cup. He donated the entire sum of his prize money, as well as additional funds, to establish Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital and Research Centre in Lahore in 1994. This was the first cancer hospital in Pakistan and the start of Imran’s long-standing commitment to philanthropy.
In Karachi, the rate of oral cancer is one of the highest in the world, and cancer of the gastrointestinal tract is also increasing in the population. Our new hospital will offer specialist care and treatment to those living with these and other cancers in the region.
Karachi is the capital of Sindh province and Pakistan’s largest, most populated city. Poverty is a major issue in the area with over 40% of the population living on less than 80 pence a day and 75% of those living in rural settlements 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. Our new hospital will offer high-quality treatment, free of charge, to the poorest cancer patients 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)
Donating Sadaqah Jariyah to a hospital is a great way to help those in need and get rewarded for our generosity both in this life and the hereafter. Find out more.
Many of us can’t afford to give much right now, that’s why we’re coming together to give what we can towards a big cause with perpetual blessings.
