HMBD Foundation has established a medical support center right at the middle of a slum in Dhaka city, providing much needed palliative care to critically ill patients.
At HMBD, we provide this support to people who cannot afford treatment for diseases such as: Cancer, Stroke, COPD, road traffic accidents etc. Presently, we are providing this care to a total of 220 patients. We have two doctor who are performing checkups of these patients twice a week in the center located at Abdullahpur, Dhaka along with providing free medication.
Doctors also pay weekly visits to patients houses – so that they do not have to take the trouble of coming to the treatment center. For patients who require specialists’ advice: HMBD Foundation with their counselling bears all the patient related costs – starting from transportation to medical expenses.
With HMBD by their side, many underprivileged people like beggars, garbage collectors have found a new hope of being able to lead a life even after being affected by very difficult diseases.
