Healthcare

Access to healthcare remains a challenge around the world. Support healthcare with a generous donation today.

Access to Healthcare

The number of children under the age of five who die each year largely from the lack of access to healthcare is larger than the population of Ireland. The number of people who die from tuberculosis, diarrhea, pneumonia, malaria and hepatitis is greater than the population of Libya. The number of people who die from diseases that could have been avoided through immunizations is greater than the population of Belize.

What’s even more troubling is that these illnesses are not painless. They bring on a tremendous amount of suffering to those whose only crime was being born in a part of the world that lacks access to healthcare.

At Baitulmaal, we believe everyone has a right to healthcare. This believe drives us to provide support healthcare initiatives around the world, such as hospitals and clinics that provide much-needed medicines and care to those who would otherwise go without.

If you share our belief that healthcare is a human right, then join us in our efforts to increase access to life-saving and life-sustaining medicines in underserved populations around the world.

You are critical to this effort. Without your generous donation, we would not be able to ship antibiotics, medical tests, equipment and pay salaries to medical staff who provide these services.

Please donate generously because the gift of life is precious.

Below are healthcare projects you can support.
