For the last few month southern Pakistan has been severely affected by a heat wave during the months June and July 2017when temperature has risen to over 50 degrees. Countless people were admitted to the hospital and numbers to deaths were recorded. At a time of despair like that Hamdard is fulfilling Shaheed Hakim Mohammed Said’s dream to help humanity by serving Rooh Afza on the streets of Karachi. The nourishing Rooh Afza helped regain the energy that had been lost because of extreme heat.
Hamdard served over 7000 glass per day to continuous 60 days. This activity continued to Ramadan as well and iftar was being served to hundreds of people every day.
“Hamdard is staying true to the legacy and Vision of Shaheed Hakim Mohammed Said by serving Humanity”
In 1906: Hakim Hafiz Abdul Majeed had setup Hamdard Dawakhana in a small 1 room shop in Old Delhi, divided in two by a curtain. His skill and integrity earned him success and renown.
In 1948: Hakim Mohammed Said established Hamdard Pakistan in a similarly small way in Old Karachi. 2 rented rooms, Rs12 worth of rented furniture. His consultations were always completely free. Only the prescribed Eastern herbal medicaments were sold, and even those at very affordable rates. Like his father’s his success was earned by hard work and integrity.
His association with Arambagh clinic, in fact, had a special place in his heart. The significance of this place is reflected in the life and death of Hakeem Mohammad Said, as the point of beginning and the end of his journey to serve the humanity which is spread over seven decades in Pakistan.
