The MCH (Maternal Child Health) department of our PHF-RMF Hospital in Agra is developing to see the light of the day. Hectic fundraising efforts by PHF (Pakistan Health Foundation) have generated funds that are being used to build two wings to the hospital. One wing is dedicated to set up a Mother and Child Healthcare component to the hospital that will provide secondary level reproductive services.
RMF has received donations in form of equipments for the MCH center from a local NGO called Humanity Friends Organization (HFO). Established recently by a group of young graduates from Quiad-e-Azam University of Islamabad, HFO focuses on development and livelihood projects for the youth in addition to their indenting services for different INGOs based in Pakistan.
HFO Chairman, Mr Ali Riaz, handed over the equipment and surgical supplies to RMF in a formal ceremony where the desire to involve a MCH health aspect in their development projects for empowerment of women was expressed.
This proposal is currently in the stage of formulation and project writing with the aim to collaborate the two organizations and submit a grant proposal for funding together.
The donation list includes:
