RAHAT – Rural Accessible Health Care through Advanced Telemedicine
'Rahat' is an Urdu word loosely translated as calmness. Through RAHAT, Bin Qutab Foundation aims to provide calmness to those suffering from different type of communicable and non-communicable diseases. RAHAT is a health network based on e-Health Model that aims to provide affordable, accessible and quality health care facilities to the masses, especially those who are underprivileged and are dwelling in rural communities. We seek to provide facilitation to those in need with compassion, commitment and care. The project utilizes technology to develop a progressive and innovative health care system that is able to provide consultations and remedies in real time, even to those residing in far flung areas.
Provision of Food Ration and Qurbani Meat during the occasions of Ramadan and Eid Ul Adha
In order to end hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition (UN SDG 2), Bin Qutab Foundation distributes food packets (dry ration) and meat to the fuqara and masakeen during the occasions of Ramadan and Eid Ul Adha. The campaign is supported by Bin Qutab Group, individual donors, institutional donors and by the philanthropic circle at large. The distributions are not restricted to occasions only, the food packets are distributed every six months by the foundation. Through the project, we aim to work towards ending hunger and malnutrition.
Provision of Water Filtration Plants
Clean, accessible water for all is an essential part of the world we want to live in. There is sufficient fresh water on the planet to achieve this. But due to bad economics or poor infrastructure, every year millions of people, most of them children, die from diseases associated with inadequate water supply, sanitation and hygiene. Water scarcity, poor water quality and inadequate sanitation negatively impact food security, livelihood choices and educational opportunities for poor families across the world. Unfortunately, Pakistan is lacking the resources to implement infrastructure to make water and sanitary needs safe and readily available. Under this program, the foundation has planned to establish such Water Treatment Plants thru out Potohar region of Rawalpindi Region and Chakwal district would be an entry point. The aim of the project is to construct sustainable models to facilitate the supply of clean drinking water in order control the spread of water borne diseases. More plants are needed.
Bin Qutab Foundation aims to respond to humanitarian tragedies that unfold in Pakistan due to man-made or natural disasters. BQF aims to help the suffering humanity through provision of food items, non-food items, medical care, shelters and clean drinking water. The foundation participated actively during 2011 floods. We supported several hundred families residing in Manki Sharif, District Nowshera, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
We are trying to play our role actively in ensuring inclusive and quality education for all and promote lifelong learning. Obtaining a quality education is the foundation to improving people’s lives and sustainable development. Since the inception of the foundation, we are supporting students under "Education Support Program". At the moment, 30 students that are not able to afford quality education are being supported through this program.
Bin Qutab Foundation has been supporting many poor families under its financial assistance program. Through this program, we help unprivileged people, dwelling in rural settings, to facilitate them in creating ventures for them, that enable them to meet their day to day expenses as well as constructing shelters for themselves and their dependents.
