HOPE Honors Dr. Mubina Agboatwalla for Women's History Month

Dear HOPE Friends,


HOPE USA Director, Ambereen Siddiqui, takes a few moments to talk about her inspiration 🌹and the humble, grassroots movement started by HOPE Pakistan Founder, Dr. Mubina Agboatwalla 25 years ago.  


HOPE initially began when Dr. Mubina was training to be a pediatrician 👩🏻‍⚕️ at Dow Medical in Karachi. She and a small band of volunteers decided to do what was in their capacity at the time to address the healthcare 🩺crisis that plagues Pakistan 🇵🇰 . Due to the poverty that is ubiquitous throughout Pakistan 🇵🇰 , they had no shortage of poor people around them that were in dire need of healthcare 😷and medications 💊. Soon, what began as a sincere seed and inspiration, grew to an organization that uses a multi pronged approach to poverty alleviation which includes Health 🏥, Education 📚, Vocational Training 💻, Clean Water 💧 , and Disaster Relief 🚑.


Today, by the Grace of God, HOPE provides free/nominal cost poverty alleviation services to 900,000 individuals yearly; 70% of whom are women 🤰🏻and children 👦🏻.


Warm Regards,


The HOPE USA 🇺🇸 🇵🇰 HOPE UK 🇬🇧 🇵🇰, and HOPE Pakistan 🇵🇰 Teams
