Executive Director Message

“Do not turn away a poor man…even if all you can give is half a date. If you love the poor and bring them near you…Allah will bring you near Him on the Day of Resurrection” Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).

I express my very sincere appreciation to all those who love mankind and express this love by taking care of suffering humanity. SAHARA for Life Trust takes the pride in accepting the credit of successfully establishing & operating Sughra Shafi Medical Complex Narowal (SSMC), a 600 bed General Hospital and so far more than 3.0 million patients have been treated free of cost. The cost of providing medical care in accordance with International standards is continuously on the rise and the annual budget is 400 million per year. A number of new equipments and resources are required for the better dispensation of health services at hospital.

Another mega project of SLT is SAHARA Medical College with the aim to cater the health care needs of remote underprivileged areas by educating health care professionals to the highest international standards and stimulating innovation through research and discover, disseminate, and apply knowledge to improve health and reduce the burden of illness on society. SAHARA Medical College is entertaining a class of 100 medical students, with a planned expansion to 150 students. This college is serving as a subsidiary of the SSMC and subsidize the running cost of hospital. We are earnestly and continuously striving our best to scale newer heights in the pursuit of excellence, with an earnest and dedicated mind to uphold the noble profession and to flourish, year after year. We are committed to make available to the public the benefits of the most modern and technological developments in the field of medical sciences.

The support of our valued donors including individuals, families, communities, organizations and well-wishers of Pakistan will play a crucial role in taking the Fund to its new height in the years ahead. I am truly indebted to all the donors both individual and institutional for reposing their belief in SAHARA for Life Trust.

I am particularly appreciative to all Board of Governors, for their timely direction and continuous support. Finally I am enormously obliged and proud of the devotion and hard work being rendered by all the staff working in SAHARA for Life Trust, who worked determinedly round the clock to complete our mission.

What we have done for ourselves alone dies with us; what we have done for others and the world remains and are immortal (Abraham Lincoln).
