Karachi, The ULPHAT (Unified Liaison for Promotion of Health and Advanced Treatment) Welfare Organization, celebrated for its significant contributions to healthcare in Pakistan, has completed a decade of service. Registered with the Sindh Social Welfare Department and certified by the Pakistan Centre for Philanthropy (PCP), ULPHAT has been pivotal in providing financial aid for surgeries and conducting free medical camps, primarily focusing on children and underserved communities across the nation.
According to Aman Foundation, since its establishment in 2010, ULPHAT has facilitated vital medical procedures for 834 children, 60% of whom required complex cardiac surgeries. Additionally, the organization has hosted 173 free medical camps in the coastal regions of Sindh and Baluchistan from 2010 to 2019, benefitting over 102,037 patients. These camps not only offer general medical care but also specialize in disaster relief, providing immediate healthcare services during crises.
ULPHAT’s comprehensive services range from supporting complex surgeries to controlling enteric pathogens in Karachi, with funding from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Their initiatives also include distributing Ramadan rations to families in need and organizing special events for orphans during Ramadan and Eid, enhancing their commitment to community welfare.
The organization’s success is attributed to collaborations with various partners, including the Sahil Welfare Association, Pakistan Navy, INFAQ Foundation, Pakistan Children’s Heart Foundation (PCHF), Karachi Down Syndrome Program (KDSP), and Zindagi Trust. These partnerships have enabled ULPHAT to extend its reach and impact, addressing critical health issues and enhancing the quality of life for vulnerable populations.
As ULPHAT continues its mission of providing essential medical services and support, it calls for continued support from the community. Their decade-long journey underscores the significant difference collective effort and compassion can make in the lives of those in need, offering a beacon of hope and healing across Pakistan.
