Today, in the ‘A Page from History’ section, we share one of the services rendered by the Kimse Yok Mu Association in Pakistan. The Association, which was closed with a statutory decree in the wake of the July 15 coup attempt, had coordinated and conducted eyesight check-ups and cataract surgeries in Dera Ismail Khan in 2015. We as verbatim quote the news report wired by the Cihan News Agency on March 15, 2015 to document this relief activity.
Rushing to provide humanitarian assistance to the people in need in Pakistan, the Kimse Yok Mu Association, this time provides a solution to the problems of the low-income citizens by conducting cataract surgeries.
During a period of nine months, Kimse Yok Mu conduced 2,224 citizens of Pakistan in the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province to have their sight restored. Not only that, the Association also had 9,325 patients in 16 different settlements receive eye treatments. While providing medicine to more than 7,000 patients, the Association distributed spectacles to more than 2,000 patients.
Before 2015, the Association had provided miscellaneous health services in various regions of Pakistan.
Expressing his thanks to the altruistic people of Anatolia, Özcan İnan, the Pakistan representative of the Kimse Yok Mu Association, shared his emotions by saying, “People in need here are very happy when they receive the charitable aid. We are also happy to witness their smiling faces. These patients pray for and thank to the altruist people of Turkey.”
In addition, there is also a town founded in Pakistan by the Kimse Yok Mu, which rushes to aid those in need by distributing food hampers and meat obtained from the sacrificial animals across Pakistan. The Iqbalia Town, which was inaugurated on September 14, 2013, is new home for 296 flood-survivor families, and maintains the lives of families in need with a central mosque, a school, sanitation staff, cemetery and central water tower.
