Transforming Lives – Meet Zeeshan!

Zeeshan, a child hailing from Silgan, the remotest valley of Gilgit-Baltistan, was suffering from severe nose bleeding along with heart palpitations. The local healthcare provider had less hope that he would survive beyond a month and advised the family to take Zeeshan to Karachi for advanced treatment. With few resources, his mother was praying for a miracle to happen.

In desperate times, Socio-Economic Development Programme (SEDP) provides financial assistance for healthcare and sustenance to help vulnerable patients like Zeeshan and their families. SEDP is an initiative of the Ismaili Council for Pakistan which aims to uplift marginalised communities living in the mountainous regions of Pakistan from the vicious generational cycle of poverty.
