Hyderabad: Helping Hand Foundation (HHF), a health care NGO, provided free healthcare to about 8 lac Urban poor for the year 2023-24, covering over 100 plus Urban slums and 17 villages in R.R. District.

Muslim Minority comprise about 43% of the total Hyderabad City population and about 60% of them constitute the weaker sections. Thus, by providing Free Health Care to 8 lacs poor patients, HHF has covered 30%. This significantly contributed to Strategic Development Goals (SDGs) as outlined by the UN to end poverty and inequality of these 8  lacs beneficiaries.

On the eve of Ramadan, HHF released it Annual Activity Report for 2023-24 by Dr. Abdullah Jolam Madani -Head of Jamia Darussalam Oomerabad, Tamil Nadu – one the leading Islamic University released the report. On this occasion Dr. Abdullah Jolam Madani, said that Islam places a huge premium on welfare of the society and civil society organisations who are doing good work must continue to work for all regardless of faith and religion.

Hyderabad receives hundreds of Crores of Zakat but unfortunately this has not been able to transform lives and bring the poor out of poverty. Charity when organised transparently with integrity and with right focus can make a difference, said Mujtaba Hasan Askari of Helping Hand Foundation.
