Dialysis is a debilitation that not only affects the health of the patient, but creates huge financial, emotional and personal distress to the patients and their family. Therefore, in addition to providing dialysis, around 75% of the dialysis patients at HBS also receive additional support such as monthly rations, transportation and sponsored education for their children. Patients are also provided with breakfast, lunch or dinner while they come for their treatment.
Some of the dialysis patients have been employed at HBS itself so that they get the chance of working and treatment at same place so that they won’t miss their treatments. HBS has also donated a few sewing machines to the families of dialysis patients to enable them to make a livelihood.

They Are Just Like Us
Most of the patients who come in for their treatment are from adverse backgrounds
with little to no financial or family support.
It is our humble attempt to introduce you to some of them every month - their background, their challenges, their ambitions, their hopes. They are like any of us, but gripped with a debilitating condition which they refuse to be threatened by!
Ajaz Ahmed, 60 years
Ms. Asfiya w/o Ajaz, gets her husband to HBS hospital for dialysis for the past 7 years. She mentions her experience stating “HBS hospital changed my perception of medical help. Before coming to HBS, our experience with different hospitals was very bad. They cheated us, created unnecessary panic, small health issues were exaggerated and we were forced to shell out thousands of rupees. I was relaxed when I saw HBS being truthful to the patients.”
“I still remember my first day at HBS. I had walked in and saw a boy experiencing fits. He was on a wheelchair, when Dr. Zafar came to the boy who was semi-conscious, gave him an injection and saline, and a few minutes later the boy was alright. Dr. Zafar gave him Rs.500 and discharged him. Looking at this I was surprised, which hospital would do it, since then HBS became a major part of my life.” “HBS has provided me a huge relief by their continued support, even If my husband get dialysis free anywhere else we would not leave HBS!”
