Help Build Shaukat Khanum Karachi

This year our Sadaqah Jariyah, combined with yours, can build Shaukat Khanum Karachi. Free cancer care in Pakistan is possible. We’ve seen it in action for over two decades across two cancer hospitals in Lahore and Peshawar. Now we’re bringing free cancer care to Karachi, Pakistan’s largest city and the 12th largest globally. Every brick you donate now is another ray of hope for every poor person diagnosed with cancer. Each brick can earn blessings and rewards for you for the rest of your life and your hereafter, Insha’Allah.

Karachi born actor/producer Humayyun Saeed explains why we’re uniting with millions to make history again in Pakistan. Will you join us?


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)

Shaukat Khanum Hospital was established in Lahore in 1994 by Imran Khan. It was a first for Pakistan: a comprehensive care facility dedicated to the diagnosis and the highest standards of treatment for cancer. Since then, and with your trust and support, we have:

  • Setup Diagnostic and Laboratory Collection Centres across Pakistan
  • Run outreach Screening Clinics nationwide
  • Founded another Shaukat Khanum Hospital in Peshawar
  • Started work on our third and biggest hospital project in Karachi

Now, we’re making history again in Pakistan. We can’t all afford to give big, but our Sadaqah Jariyah combined can build Shaukat Khanum Karachi.

Decades before Imran Khan entered politics, he was a cricket legend and the captain who led the Pakistan team to victory at the 1992 Cricket World Cup. Imran donated the entire sum of his prize money from that win, plus more, to build Shaukat Khanum Hospital. Just imagine the Sadaqah Jariyah that he and countless other supporters earned during that time. We’ve been in Karachi since 2010 when we established the Karachi Diagnostic Centre and Clinic. The centre already provides Radiology Services, including digital X-ray and Mammography; Pharmacy services; and Oncology services, including a consultation clinic and a chemotherapy bay. But our ability to help everyone is limited, and we are hard-pressed to treat the rising number of poor cancer patients in this region. A third Shaukat Khanum Hospital will change this, Insha’Allah. Shaukat Khanum Karachi will be built for £70 million and at one million square feet, it will be twice the size of our first hospital in Lahore. The new hospital will include:

  • 47 outpatient examination rooms
  • A 69 bed chemotherapy facility
  • 288 inpatient beds
  • 16 operation theatres
  • And 24 intensive care beds

It will also be equipped with the latest technology, including state-of-the-art diagnostic facilities and treatment planning and delivery systems.

Shaukat Khanum Karachi is expected to open its doors to new patients in 2023. Imran Khan recently visited the site to see the progress and new foundations of our biggest life-saving project yet. Follow in the footsteps of Imran Khan and our early supporters this year. Invest a little Sadaqah Jariyah now and reap the benefits for eternity, Insha’Allah.



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)

Many of us can’t afford to give much this year. That’s why we’re coming together to give what we can towards a big cause with perpetual blessings. Karachi currently has the highest rate of oral cancer in Pakistan and cancer of the gastrointestinal tract is also rapidly rising amongst the population. Our new hospital will be a lifeline for the thousands of families living with cancer. Karachi is the capital of the Sindh province and Pakistan’s largest, most populated city. It is plagued by extreme poverty with up to 40% of the population living on less than 80 pence a day, and 75% of the surrounding population across rural Sindh living in a state of destitution. In a region where crime is high, human life has little value. Cases of parents abandoning their children out of desperation are common. Here, the sick have little hope of survival. This year, can you give Sadaqah Jariyah to help us close the care gap?
