IMR has been engaged in medical relief activities in Pakistan since the devastating earthquake in 2005, when our teams treated thousands of injured. Subsequently IMR has conducted free medical, eye, and dental camps, opened and equipped BHUs, built a maternity hospital, and sent relief supplies. Among our ongoing projects are a free cataract surgery and a hearing aids programs, support for a rural medical center and setting up a specialized dental center for thalassemia patients.

IMR has now entered into a collaboration with CDRS (Comprehensive Disaster Relief Services) to send medical missions to their Mother and Child Health Center in Rahat Kot in northern Swat, which has been in existence since 2009. This center has treated thousands of patients from among the neighboring rural population and  is equipped with basic diagnostic facilities, such as an x-ray machine and laboratory.

These week-long medical missions will be conducted regularly every quarter in 2020. Registration will open soon.
