Health Appeals

Healthcare response is one of the most pressing needs of Azad Jammu and Kashmir. Access to healthcare is very difficult due to endemic poverty, scarcity of health services, due to lack of personnel and facilities, and repeated subjection to floods and earthquakes. This not only makes it difficult for bottom-up and local initiatives to last and become a point of reference for smaller communities, but it also means there is a need for constant maintenance and modernization of bigger structures.

Hope Welfare Trust Hope to address this through our initiatives.

Maternity & Children’s Hospital Unit (not just a maternity hospital 

People from lower social levels in general, with women in particular, struggle to see their needs met. This is reflected by the rates of post-partum and neonatal mortality in the country, which are still dangerously high.

Moreover, doctors and other health professionals are primarily located within urban areas, making it difficult to run clinics in rural areas due to a lack of personnel. 

That’s why the Hope Welfare Trust (HWT) Hospital has been built for the purpose of reducing preventable deaths and complications, which occur frequently due to the lack of maternity facilities in rural areas of Kashmir. To ensure even more lives are saved, we are working to build an operating theatre within the hospital, costing £100,000, and an ambulance service to support the community.


Seeing a doctor or nurse is just one part of a treatment. But staying well often requires medicine, which can sometimes be for life. How can someone, with next to nothing, afford often expensive medicine?

This is how the dispensing pharmacy, inside the Hope Welfare Trust Hospital, helps to further improve the lives of many struggling families, by giving them free prescriptions, saving lives and strengthening them for the future.

Dental Clinic

With many families struggling for the most basic of necessities, medical treatments, including dental treatments, seem like a luxury, which they simply can’t afford. This can lead to many dental issues being untreated, causing thousands of people to have to struggle with excruciating pain daily.

However, with their free medical treatment card, families can get essential dental checks and treatment they need each year.

Hope Welfare Trust has therefore built a modern dentist clinic to support people in the surrounding areas. But we need your support to keep it going.

Reclaim Gift Aid

Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows Hope Welfare Trust to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to Hope Welfare Trust we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like Hope Welfare Trust to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that Hope Welfare Trust will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When Hope Welfare Trust receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.
