Maternity Unit – Mother and Child Care Centre

Since the start of this century, in Pakistan and Bangladesh, a concerning trend has been growing. A high number of pregnant women undergo caesarean operations during childbirth. While in some cases, these procedures may be medically necessary, it is believed that in many instances, they are being performed unnecessarily due to a lack of proper care and attention from doctors. This is a deeply troubling issue as it not only puts the health of the mother and child at risk but also reflects a broader lack of concern for the well-being of women in these countries.

The problem is rooted in a system that prioritises making money and quick turnaround over care. In many cases, doctors are opting for the quicker and more convenient option of a caesarean operation instead of providing the necessary support and attention to ensure a safe and healthy natural delivery. In some of the worst cases, some doctors are performing unnecessary c-section operations to get more money from families, this is a form of corruption which is going unnoticed.

This issue is a stark reminder of the critical need for improved access to quality maternal healthcare in Pakistan and Bangladesh. It is vital that steps are taken to address this problem.

The Need for Safe Maternity Units in Pakistan & Bangladesh

Despite advancements in the fields of IT and manufacturing, the healthcare system in both of these countries requires remodelling, restructuring, and financial investment.

Unfortunately, the stats in the “Rural Health” report by Umar Bacha show that:

  • 14.47% of every 100 maternal deaths in South Asia occur in Pakistan.
  • 8.89% of every 100 maternal deaths in South Asia occur in Bangladesh.

These figures are shockingly high.

15,000 women lose their lives during or after delivery every year.

According to various healthcare agencies, these numbers are vastly underreported. The UN has asked charities, NGOs, and other healthcare organisations to continue their efforts towards better facilities and a more robust healthcare system for pregnant women.

Why are we building Maternity Units?

At Dabbagh Welfare Trust, we believe that every woman should have access to quality maternal healthcare, regardless of her economic status. That’s why we are building maternity units for women who cannot afford proper healthcare during pregnancy. These maternity units will provide proper medical care for pregnant women from the start of pregnancy all the way through to the delivery.

Our team of doctors and healthcare professionals are dedicated to providing the highest quality care. They will only perform a c-section when it is absolutely necessary and all other options have been exhausted. Where possible, our doctors will try their best for a natural and normal delivery. It is well known that natural birth is considered to be the best choice for the mother and the baby in most cases.

Reclaim Gift Aid

Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows Dabbagh Welfare Trust to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to Dabbagh Welfare Trust we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like Dabbagh Welfare Trust to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that Dabbagh Welfare Trust will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When Dabbagh Welfare Trust receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.
