Access to life saving, prolonging, or improving treatment is highly disproportionate in the world. The divide is greatest in the developing world, where adequate health care and medicine are expensive, difficult to obtain or scarce.
Those who suffer the most from this disparity are the already disadvantaged and impoverished such as those with our areas of operation. Access to medical treatment is a necessity that is now unfortunately denied to many. Chronic and acute illness are part of the cycle of poverty whether by way of the cause or continued lack of access to treatment, further entrenching families deeper into the cycle. This is experienced daily by so many struggling families that are forced to make difficult decisions to choose between spending their limited resources on medical treatment for an ill family member or feeding their family
Nobody should have to make this choice, which is why The Zahra Trust provides solutions to families in need of assistance with (or requiring access to) quality Medical care and medicines.
