Parachinar - Haideri Diagnostic Centre
Parachinar forms part of an extremely volatile region that has been ensnared in the deadly grip of sectarian tension, bloodshed and violence in recent years, and that still continues to this day. It is the capital of Khurram Agency in the FATA [Federally Administered Tribal Areas] region, bordering the Tora Bora province in Afghanistan. The continued unrest in the area has meant that people from certain sects are categorically denied access to many healthcare centres in the region, thus compounding the hardships faced by people that are already inundated with calamities beyond endurance. We therefore considered it vital and of paramount importance that action be taken as swiftly as possible to equip these individuals with access to quality healthcare and therefore joined forces with the Hussaini Foundation and the Haideri Blood Bank & Welfare Society.
The Haideri Blood Bank & Welfare Society, established in 1996, operates the Haideri Diagnostic Centre in Parachinar. The Society has been actively involved with meeting the needs of our brethren residing in Parachinar and neighbouring areas for a number of years now, and has, as such, gained local repute, expertise and forged strong links with key notables, NGOs and humanitarian organisations. The Diagnostic Centre was however ill equipped due to insufficient funds. The WF donated equipment worth GBP 13,500.00 in 2011 which has greatly enhanced its abilities to serve those in dire need of aid.
Further projects across the globe are considered on a needs /request basis.
