Human Welfare Foundation inaugurates hospital in Rithora, UP

People of Rithora have a full-fledged hospital in their village, with the inauguration of Khidmat Hospital by T. Arifali, the General Secretary of Human Welfare Foundation.

On the outskirts, Rithora is situated about 15 km north of Bareilly city. It is surrounded by about 50 villages with an approximate population of 5 lakhs, and proper medical facilities are hardly available. Majority of the population of this region is Muslims and they are economically deprived owing to a decline in the handicraft industry which was a livelihood to many. 

Bareilly is located in the western region of India's most populated state, Uttar Pradesh. More than 35% of its population are Muslims and approximately 78% of its total population lives in rural areas.

With government expenditure on health falling over the years and the rise of the private health care sector, the poor are left with fewer options to access healthcare services. Rithora region lacks a quality health care facility and therefore Vision2026 decided to establish a healthcare facility in the region.

The hospital consists of a 24x7 Emergency Service with an ambulance, Gynaecology, Paediatrics, General Medicine, General Surgical, Pathology and Radiology Specialties, and a blood bank. The hospital is run by the Human Welfare Foundation with the support of the UP Human Welfare Foundation. The foundation stone of the hospital was laid by T. Arifali in July 2019.

Human Welfare Foundation Asst. General Secretary Muazzam Naik, Healthcare Manager, Dr. Arif Nadvi, office bearers of UP Human Welfare Foundation, and other dignitaries were present at the inaugural function.
