As the world focuses on preventing the spread of Covid-19, MMBT is providing health, nutrition, and food support to vulnerable people in communities – and appealing to donors to assist this vital work.

According to the latest figures, there are now over 0.5 million confirmed cases of Coronavirus across Pakistan. The virus has reached every corner of the country, sparking fears, and an economic downturn. This number is likely to increase over the coming weeks and months as the global pandemic reaches people in every part of the world.

Our health, nutrition, and food support saves lives

One of our key projects Bukhsh hospitals are providing lifesaving medical care and general health services to the surrounding communities’ in Jhelum. Even at times of complete lockdowns, Bukhsh hospital remained committed to its mission of serving the poor and marginalized.

In many parts of the Punjab province, our teams are providing food packages to the affected communities and lifesaving medicines and nutrition support to the stunted children and Mother and Child Health Care. As Covid-19 impacts more communities in Pakistan, our teams will be running mobile health clinics, providing hygiene kits and nutrition support to the families.

We are also raising awareness of good hygiene practices like washing hands, training communities in healthcare.

Good hygiene saves lives

Bukhsh hospital is encouraging all local communities to take extra care during this period and follow the governments’ official medical advice. This includes:

  • Washing hands regularly and thoroughly with soap.
  • Avoiding touching one’s face.
  • Covering one’s mouth and nose with a tissue or sleeve when coughing or sneezing.
  • Putting used tissues in the bin and washing hands immediately.
  • Avoiding close contact with unwell people.
