WMO have established themselves as Caretakers of Humanity for almost two decades now. The organization provides effective medical and health care to the underprivileged across the globe. From free medicines to diagnostic tests, from providing kidney dialysis to a sizeable number of afflicted brothers and sisters on a daily basis to making life saving surgeries possible for the less fortunate. The organization strives to provide quality health care to the marginalized. The Gift of Sight is an exceedingly thoughtful, collaborative program which provides free corneal transplants to the visually impaired in Pakistan. Healthy corneas are exported from Sri Lanka, courtesy WMO Far East Chapter.
The next Legacy project in India is the upcoming, sprawling 135 bed Memon Hospital in Palghar – a satellite town of Mumbai. The state of the art, multispeciality hospital will cater to the underprivileged from across the country.
“We support Life. We strongly believe that every human being has the right to quality medical care. Our vision is a World without suffering.” asserted Mr. Haroon Karim (Chairman – WMO Board of Trustees) as he arrived in Palghar on the 14th of September to inspect the construction work and get updates on the progress of the Memon hospital. The 3.5 million dollar project is being completed in phases. The first 1.5 million, 55 bed ground floor structure is at the half way stage. The Palghar Memon Welfare Trust is collaborating with WMO to bring the intial phase of the project to fruition by December 2019.
“WMO is resolute in its belief that quality medical care should remain firmly within the frail grasp of penury. With the swift construction of the Memon hospital in Palghar, we have taken rapid strides to achieve that paramount objective,” added Mr. Ashraf Sattar (Deputy Chairman of WMO Board of Trustees) as he joined Mr. Karim on the hospital premises in Palghar. Mr. Sattar concluded, “We are striving to achieve our objective of making free of cost, quality healthcare a reality for all in India. In a few years time with steadfast support from the WMO, the Memon Hospital will stand completed and we pray it becomes a beacon of hope for health care and the marginalized in India.”
