The majority of the community belongs to the middle class, but due to the current
inflation, it is in a position of “neither saying nor enduring” and Expensive treatment is
now becoming a scourge of society. In this regard, the board has achieved a major
milestone by securing a special (Non-Zakat) discount for all members of the Memon
community from various liberates who can avail of it by showing their Jamaat
membership card. This discount is in the range of thirty to seventy percent.
In today’s era of inflation, meeting the necessities of life has also become
a difficult matter. If anybody go to the hospital even for a minor ailment,
they will get a bill of hundreds and sometimes thousands of rupees,
which is an additional burden on the middle class. Realizing this most
important need of the community, the Health Board has decided to issue the Memon
Health Insurance Card, in which by paying a few thousand per year, the whole family will
be able to get treatment in many hospitals through the insurance card. Discussions are
ongoing. It is hoped that this program will be started in November.
Caution is the guarantee of better health. In order to avoid disease, it is important to be aware of achieving better health. Keeping this in mind, the board has constituted a committee on a permanent basis under which health awareness programs and screening will be conducted every month.
Health is a blessing of Allah, this is an old proverb and its value is known more by those who are suffering from any chronic disease. It is the desire of the health board that the community remains healthy and in this regard, the health board has created several programs. Health Expo is also a part of the same series.

The program is planned to be organized early next year. The program is launched as soon as the policy and planning are completed. Several programs of the Health Board are under consideration and are being worked on.
