Chairperson’s Message

Mian Muhammad Buksh Trust (MMBT) has an objective to bring about a  quantum change in the lives of people, covered under its programmes.  A philanthropist organisation can serve the community at best, if the real needs of the population are properly identified; in the correct perspective and the right order of priority.  The philanthropists must understand the ground realities and take a start by focusing on the basic needs, before they could actualize their dreams of mega projects.  Sustainability of the projects should  duly be considered in the planning phase.  Community participation associated with good direction / goal setting,  guidance  and supervision by the elders along with an unflinching resolve are the cornerstone for success of any welfare project.

Health and Education unfortunately are the worst deprivations of our populace, requiring action on war footing. Fulfillment of these essential human requirements is sine qua none for development of a healthy society. The quagmire of social evils, our society is presently confronted with, including inter alia, the menace of radicalization and terrorism are linked to poverty, ignorance, illiteracy and ill health.

Mian Muhammad Bukhsh Trust is a Not for Profit, philanthropic organisation, working for education, health, community development and women empowerment.  The trust took a start by raising a Girls School at village Dhanyala, near Jhelum.  Soon after the trust conceived  a healthcare project for development of a state of the art 120 beds general hospital at Dhanyala Jhelum, designed to cater for the health needs of near one hundred thousand people of this down trodden rural area of Jhelum.  While the development of MMBT Hospital was still underway, the trust has been running an Outpatients Clinic and providing free medical services (including weekly consultant gynaecologist visits) at the hospital site for the last ten years.  Named after the most revered Sufi Poet / Saint of the region, Mian Muhammad Bukhsh, we are ambitious to see this facility come up as a Centre of Excellence.  First Phase of the hospital, comprising 55 beds, having a focus on Mother & Child Health is all set to start its operations.  MMBT hospital would also have a mobile component to provide outreach services.  We have also plans to develop midwifery and paramedical school attached to the hospital.

Success of the above stated welfare projects could not have been accomplished without the active and continuous support of our prestigious donors, who never let us fall short of resources.  They are our real strength, we profoundly value their concern for the humanitarian cause and respect their generous contribution in completion of the trust welfare projects.
