Health is one of the world’s most urgent priorities and a core focus.
Timing and medical assistance is critical in preventing death during emergencies and especially of pregnant women and their unborn children.
In Pakistan, a woman typically has to travel around 6-8 hours to reach a hospital for childbirth. Travelling such distances whilst in full-term labour can be dangerous and result in unnecessary deaths of newborn babies and their mothers.
In the past four years, Human Help has provided ambulances in countries like Pakistan..
Each ambulance typically caters for around 1,000 patients annually and around 100 of these are life- threatening emergencies.
19,000 children under age 5 die of mostly preventable causes
Today, nearly 19,000 children under age 5 will die of mostly preventable causes, such as diarrhea, malaria, and pneumonia. Quba Trust focuses on child and maternal health, using basic medicines, supplies, and interventions to prevent and treat illnesses at the community level.
Poor health and poverty go hand-in-hand.
Hunger is a problem that affects everything for the world’s poorest people. It prevents children’s brains from developing fully, causes physical stunting and inhibits their immune systems.
Access to healthcare
Quba Trust believes that good health and access to healthcare are fundamental human rights. The overall goal of Quba Trust health programme is to improve the health of the world’s poorest people and ensure that they have access to food. Islamic Aid nutrition programmes work to prevent malnutrition and ensure that those who do suffer can gradually recover to full health.
