What is iQra Disabled Children's Hospital?
iQra Disabled Children's Hospital is an idea born from the results of research into how iQra can best utilise its resources to help orphans (aged between 12 and 16), and the most disadvantaged people who are often maligned and shunned because they are seen as a burden and drain on basic resources (food, clothing, shelter, etc).
iQra Disabled Children's Hospital will enable us to provide a holistic approach to the care and support we provide to these people. It is our hope that the Complex will bring hope and instil a sense of self-worth and dignity, and enable these young minds to fully participate in and make positive contributions to their communities and society at large.
