Razia Begum Dialysis Centre inaugurated at Bilqees Sarwar Hospital
To provide equal opportunities of a healthy life for those most in need, the Bilqees Sarwar Foundation (BSF) has opened the Razia Begum Dialysis Centre at the Bilqees Sarwar Hospital. Funded through zakat, this centre will provide quality treatments to patients who require kidney dialysis but are unable to afford the expenses. The dialysis centre is fully equipped with latest machinery and facilities.
The story behind the name
The Razia Begum Dialysis Centre has been established in honor of Mrs. Razia Begum, the grandmother of BSF Founder Farhan Sarwar, and in memory of the Sarwar family’s loved ones who lost their lives fighting with the same kidney health issues. The Razia Begum Dialysis Centre will ensure that the vulnerable ones will get free quality treatment from advanced equipment, experienced paramedical staff, and the best doctors in the country. These are the factors that will make Razia Begum Dialysis Centre one of the top ranked dialysis centres in Pakistan and beyond.
