A special treatment base for Pakistani pilgrims was established by the efforts of the Razavi Hospital at Mehr Fatemi Endowment.
According to Astan News correspondent, Reza Saeedi, the director of the Razavi Hospital said about the establishment of a medical base for Pakistani pilgrims at the Mehr Fatemi Endowment in Mashhad, “According to the emphasis of the Grand Custodian of Astan Quds Razavi on proper serving of Pakistani pilgrims at Mirjaveh and Mehran borders to attend the grand march of Arbaeen Husseini, the establishment of a special treatment base for these pilgrims has been on the agenda since last year.”
“Pakistani pilgrims, after returning from the march of Arbaeen Husseini go for the pilgrimage of Hazrat Masoumeh (S.A.) in Qom and then the Holy Mosque of Jamkaran and afterwards in the final days of the month of Safar, they will be present in the holy city of Mashhad, and by the efforts of Endowment and Charity Organization of the province they are settled at the Mehr Fatemi endowment, located at Saheb al-Zaman Street (A.S.),” he added.
“Last year, Razavi hospital therapists had been hosting these pilgrims for about ten days since their presence to receive medical services, and this year, during the final days of the month of Safar to November 16th, the special treatment base for these dear ones was is established in this endowment. We are expecting special health services to be provided daily to more than 300 Pakistani pilgrims given the crowd congestion,” Saeedi stated.
Expressing that following this long journey, Pakistani pilgrims suffer from complications and illnesses like cold he asserted, “Experienced therapists and physicians at Razavi Hospital independently provide Pakistani pilgrims with outpatient services such as injections, dressing, prescribing and offering medicine, bandages and so on.”
“For the therapists of Astan Quds Razavi, the nationality, religion and gender of the treatment applicants and patients is not important and anyone who is in need of health care will be a candidate for receiving it. Dear Pakistani pilgrims are usually income challenged and they need good health care services and they also have a strong urgency for health monitoring services” he pointed out.
“Furthermore, an ambulance is employed at this base if necessary to transfer patients to Razavi Hospital to receive higher-level services” the director of the Razavi Hospital remarked.
