After extending support to distress people in hospitals and organising the medical camps besides introducing the micro financing scheme for the petty traders, the Mujtaba Helping Foundation, an NGO, is now contemplating to launch full-fledged Health Centres in different districts especially adjacent to religious places like Mosques, Temples & Church where the people of different communities are regular visitors.
“All the medical services being provided in these centres will be completely free for people and will kick start from the month of June this year. We are presently consulting with specialist doctors, medical practitioners and paramedics to make the available all the time for the people of areas where the Heath Centres are proposed to set up,” informed Shaikh Mohd.Mustafa, President Mujtaba Helping Foundation.
To begin with, he said, we are planning to set up Health Centres at Mandal headquarters in Tandur and Basheerabad which are largely considered as less privileged in terms of medical services. “These Health Centres would be formed very adjacent to religious places like Mosque, Temple and Church according to the availability of the places. This will help people get familiar with the health centres as large number of villagers from all the community regularly or occasionally used to visits their religious places,” explained Mustafa.
Going into detail he said, “These centres will be equipped with required medical apparatus, accessories and medicines besides professional medical experts and trained paramedical staff supported with all necessary arrangements even to attend emergency cases free of cost. Ambulances would be made available at all the health centres to help people reach the centres quickly on time during emergencies.”
It is pertinent to mention here recently Mujtaba Helping Foundation (MHF) has introduced free ambulance service in the city in collaboration with a SIAA Foundation Sadasivpet represented by a good Samaritan Dr.Syed Amjad.
The free ambulance service, he said, will be launched from 6th February this week to help people during emergencies. “Shift the people to hospitals on time during medical emergencies is very important to save their lives instead of leaving them to the hands of their misery,” he asserted.
Explaining that people especially middle and lower class spend much of their earnings on dealing with health related issues, he said, “The medical expenses nowadays goes out of their reach especially in the prevailing situation after the coronavirus outbreak. By introducing such free health centres, we can provide them impromptu services to poor and needy people at their own areas where they can get diagnosed and treatment without of any expenditure or inconvenience.”
