Al-Mustafa Welfare Trust® has organised medical and mobile eye camps in five different countries including Pakistan, Kashmir, Bangladesh, Gambia and Nigeria.
We arrange our camps in rural towns and villages where there is no access to doctors or health care facilities at all. Each medical camp is fully equipped to handle up to 1,000 patients receive Our Health Projects. We arrange 1 medical camp every month. One camp costs at least £1000.
More than 150,000 patients have been treated in our medical camps so far since we began operation. During the flooding disaster in Pakistan we helped set-up free medical camps to help reduce the outbreak of fatal diseases which in turn calmed the local population.

Common Diseases treated in our Medical Camps
Food or Waterborne Diseases
These types of diseases are acquired through eating or drinking and their are the following types:
Hepatitis A – viral disease that interferes with the functioning of the liver; spread through consumption of food or water contaminated with faecal matter, principally in areas of poor sanitation; victims exhibit fever, jaundice, and diarrhoea; 15% of victims will experience prolonged symptoms over 6-9 months; vaccine available.
Hepatitis E – water-borne viral disease that interferes with the functioning of the liver; most commonly spread through faecal contamination of drinking water; victims exhibit jaundice, fatigue, abdominal pain, and dark coloured urine.
Typhoid Fever – bacterial disease spread through contact with food or water contaminated by faecal matter or sewage; victims exhibit sustained high fevers; left untreated, mortality rates can reach 20%.
These types of diseases are acquired through the bite of an infected arthropod and their are the following types:
Malaria – caused by single-cell parasitic protozoa Plasmodium; transmitted to humans via the bite of the female Anopheles mosquito; parasites multiply in the liver attacking red blood cells resulting in cycles of fever, chills, and sweats accompanied by anaemia; death due to damage to vital organs and interruption of blood supply to the brain; endemic in 100, mostly tropical, countries with 90% of cases and the majority of 1.5 to 2.5 million estimated annual deaths occurring in sub-Saharan Africa.
Dengue Fever – mosquito-borne (Aedes Aegypti) viral disease associated with urban environments; manifests as sudden onset of fever and severe headache; occasionally produces shock and haemorrhage leading to death in 5% of cases.
Yellow Fever – mosquito-borne viral disease; severity ranges from influenza-like symptoms to severe hepatitis and haemorrhagic fever; occurs only in tropical South America and sub-Saharan Africa, where most cases are reported; fatality rate is less than 20%.
