Upcoming Hospital

CLAPP,s  Board of Trustees has realized an increasing need to develop a new Hospital which can cater thousands of such patients who have no other place to go for free/subsidized surgeries. If not treated timely, these patients may become crippled and disabled forever. Thousands of patients are untreated just because of lack of funds. CLAPP Trust has felt the pain of those needy patients and has decided to cestablish a new hospital with a vision to change the lives of those needy patients who are living with their disabilities, just due to financial constraints.

With better financial management, CLAPP Trust saved a good amount of funds from the donations received from Local and International donors by freezing the expenses up to a certain limit.

This  new hospital will provide free surgical treatment to the  patients of Crania-Facial deformity, Blindness (congenital or acquired cataract), Club feet, Hydrocephalus, Hole in the Heart in addition to Cleft Lip & Palate and Post-Burn Contractures.

Clapp Trust purchased a piece of land measuring 18787,5 square feet or 1745 Square meter in 2011 equivalent to 4 Kanals and 3.5 Marlas. When we started developing the Building designs, we soon came to realise that this piece of land is quite insufficient as per our requirements. In 2014, we purchased another adjacent piece of land measuring 1750 Square meter to add to the project requirements. But our Architect was still not convinced that we have adequate land for our needs. So we were asked to purchase an adjacent piece of land to fulfill our desires to establish a state of the art hospital. So now the total piece of  land measures about 47,700 Sq. feet or 4431 Square meters (10 Kanals and 11 Marlas). The building designs for 500 bedded hospital have been finalised by “Green Studio” firm. They have designed many Medical colleges and Hospitals in Punjab. CLAPP has submitted the

Building designs submitted to Lahore Development Authority have been approved and now the plans have been forwarded to HLDC (High Level Design Committee), Lahore for final confirmation. We hope to start the construction process somewhere in 2019 and complete the project somewhere in 2022.

Pakistan is fourth country in the world having more cleft patients after China, India and Indonesia. 1 out of 10 children born with a cleft dies before his/her first birthday. Incidence across the globe is approximately 1 out of 500-700 Live births but it is 1 in 550 live births in Pakistan. Children with a cleft palate who do not receive surgery by age 10 may have lifelong speech issues.

In Pakistan, more than 9,000 cleft lip & palate patients are born every year. More than 50,000 cleft patients are un-operated, still waiting for surgery since many years.

Orthopaedics, Paediatrics, Obstetrics & Gynaecology, Eye, ENT, Neurosurgery, MaxilloFacial Surgery, Cardiac Surgery, Cardiology and Neurology.

Diagnostic services will also generate a good amount of revenue.The revenue generated from private patients will be used to support free surgeries of poor patients. When the revenue generation reach a certain positive limits, We will be able to subsidize more services for the deserving patients.
