The Laeeque Rafiq Foundation was
established with the objective to provide maximum medical
relief to the poor and needy community particularly
the women and children. To achieve the goal, the Foundation
is building a hospital - Laeeque Rafiq Hospital (LRH)
where quality health care will be provided to everyone,
irrespective of their paying ability.
The proposed hospital is located in the outskirts of
the southern side of Multan City and is spread over
an area of 2.25 acres, with plans to build a multi-storey
and multi-disciplinary hospital, research center and
an educational institution. The site is surrounded by
a number of small towns like Lar, Qasba, Basti Malook,
Muneer Abad, Gardez More, Gulabi Wala etc. Such neighboring
towns range population from ½ to 1 million (approx),
which has been deprived of the basic health facilities.
The LRH is only the beginning. Our sights are set on
attaining a much higher level of medical care provision
to the people of the region. Future plans include initiation
of mother and child charitable dispensaries at far flung
areas and mobile basic health units. These will be in
constant touch with the hospital both for administrative
and medical matters.
A comprehensive healthcare
system that will provide both primary and tertiary care
to all, especially mothers and children, which will
improve the existing conditions and give the people
a healthier and a safer life to live.
To provide the best health care to all people of this
region, with special emphasis on the mother and child,
irrespective of their socio-economic back ground.
Rafiq died at a very young age due to cancer.
With empathy in his young kind heart he sincerely aimed
to serve the poor society in every way possible.
The memory of Laeeque Rafiq
stands as our motivation that to
serve humanity is to serve the Almighty.’
