About Us

Almighty Allah has blessed Pakistan with long coastal belt which is full of marine resources. However, its 85% population is living below poverty line and extremely lacking in provision of basic amenities. Overall literacy rate is less than 40% and only 27% of women are literate; which is world’s lowest. Moreover, no comprehensive health related quality infrastructure exist there. Only 2 x hospitals are available for usual ailments, whereas, serious patients are referred to Karachi for treatment. In case of emergency/ accidents, death rate is quite high due to non-availability of Trauma Centres in the area. Power shortage is another challenge on the coastal belt and nearly 25% of its population doesn’t have access to electricity. Further, 10-14 hours load shedding is regular feature. This situation becomes worse in the summer. Less than 24% of its population has access to piped water and less than 7% has access to internet.
