In Pakistan, this lifeline of digital health remains an elusive dream for all as more than 50% individuals are deprived of primary healthcare facilities.
Let’s embark on a journey into the remarkable story of one man who, with unwavering resolve and boundless compassion, set out to bridge this gaping divide. Meet our founder, Mr. Asim Alam, a visionary and the founder of an idea that would forever change the lives of countless in the remote villages of Pakistan. It all began with a research expedition that led Mr. Alam to a village nestled in the heart of the countryside. The air was filled with simplicity and the laughter of children at play, but one child caught his eye. A barefooted boy, completely unaware of the fate that was about to befall him.
In the blink of an eye, disaster struck. The young boy suffered a grave leg injury, and it became immediately apparent that there were no medical facilities nearby, no affordable healthcare options that could provide him with the care he so desperately needed. As hours turned into days, and the boy’s pain grew unbearable, the truth was revealed—his injury had developed into a sinister force, a cancer that threatened his very life. The amputation of his leg was undertaken as a crucial measure to secure his survival; however, he couldn’t survive, and he passed away.
Amid this despair, Asim found a glimmer of hope His heart, heavy with the weight of this tragedy, gave birth to an idea. An idea to bridge the gap, to provide the rural areas of Pakistan with something they had been longing for – affordable and accessible medical services.
