Population(s) Served
Economically disadvantaged people

In 2020 SHINE Humanity started a Paani Project to tackle the root cause behind the outbreak of waterborne diseases in rural communities. The cause behind most gastrointestinal diseases which ail the local community lies in usage of contaminated water. Hence, To date we have installed 6 RO plants in various locations in interior Sindh, including Ibrahim Hyderi, Sujawal and Mirpur Khaas. Through robust collaborations with the local communities, we aim to provide clean drinking water to rural areas.

Population(s) Served

Our Mobile clinic currently serves three villages around the rural district of Thatta. Since starting last year we have served over 4500 patients. We hope to be able to serve a wider geographical area in 2018

This program was in response to a baseline that showed that no intervention was in place for rural communities suffering from Asthma and other respiratory issues. The program aims to identify and treat people with respiratory illnesses. Screening is conducted through a spirometry test. For patients who show obstructive or restrictive lung disease, we provide inhalers and life-saving medication, as well as educational material in the regional language on smoking cessation and other contributing factors.

Population(s) Served

The Malaria program started in 2017 and has been running for over 6 years during which we have tested more than 10,000 patients. This program screens the population for malaria using screening kits, followed by confirmatory blood test and thick and thin film microscopy. Each confirmed case is followed up until completely treated and preventative solutions like mosquito repellants are provided for complete care.

Population(s) Served

Pakistan now has the highest burden of Hepatitis B and C patients globally. Our Hepatitis Eradication Program started in 2021. In collaboration with The Health Foundation, we initiated screening of the rural population for Hepatitis-C. After a confirmed diagnosis, the patients are treated until they are disease-free. We have further included Hepatitis-B eradication by starting a vaccination program from the identified patient pool.

Population(s) Served

In light of the alarming rate of Diabetes in Pakistan, SHINE launched a holistic Diabetes Program which encompasses medical treatment, lifestyle management and nutritional counseling for patients with Type II Diabetes Mellitus. We maintain vigilant follow-ups to ensure the community gets the help they need. Screening is done based on HbA1C, a revolutionary step in rural areas, followed by routine blood test for a holistic point of care.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

As stated in our mission, we aim to provide quality primary and preventive care to the underserved. We hope to expand and scale the level of services as the need arises. Poverty is a major factor limiting the ability of communities to go to a healthcare provider when they need treatment, thereby leading to a progression of the disease. By ensuring the presence of staff and medicines at our charitable facilities, the patients have a reliable center they can go to as soon as they have the first symptoms of illness; thus averting progression and complications of their illness.

We aim to achieve our goals through the professionalism and caring of our staff and management who form an essential cornerstone of our services.
All staff serving at the healthcare centers are qualified and trained to manage basic levels of conditions. A referral system with non-profit organizations providing a higher level of care is in place for use when needed. The physicians undertake Continued Medical Education [CME] sessions over the course of the year to stay abreast of the latest in medicine. Most of the staff is hired from the local community and, therefore, have a high level of cultural acceptance.

SHINE's current projects are in areas where good quality healthcare is inaccessible either because of availability, monetary, or distance constraints. By hiring staff from the local areas, especially for the semi-rural or rural projects, we minimize absenteeism and ensure that the patients receive the care they need, particularly for those traveling long distances. We are supported mostly by our loyal donors and Foundations in the accomplishment of our mission.
A number of physicians, public health specialists and business persons serve on the board or act as advisors to oversee the management of the projects; each adding their own expertise. Some members of the governing body visit the project sites annually.

Since starting in 2009, SHINE Humanity has worked with its partners to provide assistance to 475,000 beneficiaries in Pakistan, Haiti, and Japan. After the initial years of being involved in disaster relief, we realized the need of the communities beyond the aftermath of the disaster period. So we turned our focus to providing primary and preventive healthcare services with the belief that if we could help people in their initial stages of sickness, we could avert complications and reduce the cost of care for them later on. This is essential given that most needy communities lack access to affordable quality care. Therefore we have partnered with other non-profits to provide such care and are currently serving 60,000 - 70,000 beneficiaries annually in Sindh, Pakistan. Around 88 percent of these patients are women and children. We would like to expand our services to provide broader Maternal and Child Health care, as our data indicates a greater need for these services.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jan 01 - Dec 31

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
