Abaseen Foundation UK

We provide health and education to marginalised communities in North West Pakistan

Founded 2003

  • Mission statement

    The Abaseen Foundation Pakistan was established in 2000. Its intention was to support a non-functioning and ill-equipped government hospital in North West Pakistan, serving a population of 200,000.

    In 2002, the Abaseen Foundation UK, its partner organisation, was founded to provide not only financial aid, but managerial and skills support to the project.

    Since taking control of the struggling Nahaqi hospital, the Foundation has seen it transform into a fully-functioning and modern healthcare facility, receiving praise from the World Health Organization and the North West Frontier Province Government.

    Meanwhile, the charity has also gone from strength-to-strength and extended its support for local communities through humanitarian relief and education projects.

    With the help of generous donations and frequent fundraising events, as well as the support and expertise of the charity’s Board of Trustees, the Foundation is able to support the health and education of thousands in rural communities in Pakistan.
