About Midland Doctors®
The charity began with a vision which at first seemed unachievable and we knew it required grit, perseverance and faith. Fast-forward since 2006, with the generosity and support of our donors, we stand strong continuing to build hope for humanity.
To have seen the charity grow from its initial stages to the still, humble institution that is has become, has been an inspiration to us all.
– Mohammad Altaf
Established by a group of doctors who had travelled to Azad Kashmir in response to the 2005 earthquake in Northern Pakistan, Midland Doctors®, a UK based nonprofit organisation, was created with a vision to provide free healthcare to the poor and destitute with dignity and care. The ambition to create an NHS inspired hospital at first it seemed unachievable and they all knew it required grit, perseverance and faith, but after realising the lack of medical care in the region of Muzaffarabad and discovering that the only local hospital had collapsed, it was evident that something needed to be done. Having witnessed the terrible devastation and seeing the plight of the people in the region, they could not turn a blind eye and were compelled to continue on this new journey, regardless of the amassed time, effort and dedication it would take. After years of travelling on their own expenses, pouring their heart and soul into the project whilst partaking in multiple other charitable projects, the executive team are proud to have created a state-of-the-art medical facility which is ever evolving to serve the people of Azad Jammu and Kashmir.
To build hope for humanity by providing a leading specialised health institute and delivering leading-edge primary, secondary and tertiary healthcare, education, training and research.
Our mission is to be a safe, effective and efficient charitable healthcare provider, offering elective services in a dignified healthcare setting, to all patients irrelevant of social class, background or ethnicity. Further, to distribute resources to the poor and destitute on a Zakat eligible basis.
It Began with a Tragedy...
On the morning of 8th October 2005 a catastrophic earthquake measuring 7.6 on the Richter scale struck the unsuspecting people of Northern Pakistan. For six terrifying, agonising minutes the earth shook and when it stopped, over 87,000 people had lost their lives, tens of thousands were severely injured and over three million were made homeless.
