Karachi – Abu Bakar, a resilient 20-year-old from a small village in South Punjab, Pakistan, surrounded by the flowing waters of the River Indus. For four years, Abu Bakar battled liver pain and acidity, undertaking a cumbersome 3-hour journey to a distant hospital in Sadaqabad, only to find no answers and no relief.
However, hope sailed into his life with Pakistan’s First-Ever Boat Clinic by Indus Hospital & Health Network. Imagine Abu Bakar’s surprise when he first saw the massive ship approaching on the horizon! Skepticism turned to gratitude for the distressed population of the village. ‘Now, all 20 family members of mine visit the boat clinic for every small health-related issue,’ says Abu Bakar.
