With well-maintained facilities offering a wide range of mental health services, Karwan-e-Hayat is acknowledged as the leading provider of psychiatric care in Karachi, especially for the poor and underprivileged who cannot afford specialized treatment. To many from the impoverished segments in Karachi – a city with a population of over 20 million – access to basic health facilities is difficult. In the case of mental disorders, from which countless individuals suffer, we offer them hope of a new beginning leading to recovery. This has been Karwan-e-Hayat’s greatest achievement.
Our Challenge: #BreakTheStigma
The taboo associated with mental illness has been Karwan-e-Hayat’s greatest challenge. Starting with modest steps and armed with a determination to provide healing options to individuals suffering from mental disease, Karwan has given hope for a promising future to thousands of impoverished patients. Around 450 million people around the world currently suffer from mental illnesses, thus placing mental disorders among the leading causes of ill health and disability worldwide.
