Over 100,000 people die of cancer every year in Pakistan.
Cancer is a group of diseases characterised by uncontrolled growth and spread of abnormal cells. The diagnosis, treatment and management of cancer is a complex, multidisciplinary effort and often beyond the financial means of a suffering patient.
The Ibn Zuhr building houses the AKUH's oncology services and offers comprehensive care for cancer under one roof. The Hospital also provides subsidized cancer treatment to needy patients through the the Patient Welfare Programme and PBS. It helps to educate the public about cancer, its probable symptoms, characteristics, available inpatient services and the importance of early diagnosis and prevention.
Use your zakat to support surgery, chemotherapy or hormone therapy for a cancer patient and help transform their lives.
