Who We Are ?
More than a decade ago, a group of philanthropist students at Bolan Medical College Quetta started helping poor and marginalized patients from interior Balochistan in the public and private hospitals of Quetta. Since the literacy rate in Balochistan is low, so the majority of the patients find simple procedures of hospitals difficult. This group of students started facilitating these patients. The group extended their support to patients and started arranging blood donations, funds and medicines. Thus hundreds of patients benefited from this work. In order to organize this work in a more systematic way, this group started thinking of a patient’s welfare organization. It was with this noble cause that in May 2011, Open Door Health Services (ODHS) was established. ODHS not only continued its work at Quetta, but also expanded its services to the remote areas of Balochistan. (more…)
