UK charity to construct cardiac hospital in Mirpur AJK

The Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) government signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on Saturday with a charity based in the UK to build a cutting-edge cardiac facility in Mirpur.

Participants of the ceremony, held at Kashmir House Islamabad, were informed that the proposed facility would offer treatment for heart illnesses to both residents of the neighboring territories of Punjab and the people of AJK’s southern districts.

The MoU was signed by Maj Gen Zaheer Akhtar, secretary for health services for the AJK, and Barrister Abid Hussain, CEO of Developing World Healthcare, on behalf of their respective organizations.

According to the Charity Commission for England and Wales, Developing World Healthcare offers surgical and medical interventions to patients in impoverished and remote parts of the world, giving them access to the high-quality care they require.

The premier of AJK declared, “I have witnessed the sincerity of this team and I feel positive that they would create the best health facility in the freed area,” promising that a hospital for liver transplants will also be constructed in AJK.

To attract foreign students as well as conduct the necessary research at our teaching hospitals and medical institutions, our medical faculty must be strengthened, he said.

The AJK premier made a similar point when he advised that medical professionals hold seminars and workshops on various illness subtypes that would otherwise receive less attention from them.

“Wealthy people should volunteer for such charitable deeds that bring rewards both here and in the hereafter.”

This hospital would catalyze everyone involved in one of these projects, he said, adding that his government will provide all assistance available to anyone wishing to start a humanitarian endeavor of any kind.

I will shortly be leading a team to the UK and Europe to call attention to the persistent persecution of our brethren in occupied Kashmir who are fighting for a right that has been promised to them by the UN and the international community, he said.

Barrister Hussain thanked PM, Ilyas, for his admiration of the charity and his deep interest in its cardiac hospital project, and he assured him that they will do everything in their power to complete it on schedule.
