A contact requested information on the availability of artificial limbs for deserving disabled persons in Pakistan.

Indus Hospital & Health Network, Karachi
This is the best one in the country. The Physical Rehabilitation Center with the support of the International Committee of Red Cross and CHAL Foundation was established in 2015 at the Korangi Campus, Karachi.
Indus Hospital & Health Network is the only hospital in Pakistan providing free-of-cost prosthetic limbs along with physiotherapy to help patients walk again. Additionally, the facility also provides psychological therapy to patients and their families to help them cope with the circumstances.
To meet the growing needs, Indus Hospital & Health Network expanded its Center’s services to Bedian Road Hospital, Lahore; Recep Tayyip Erdogan Hospital, Muzaffargarh; and Civil Hospital, Badin. All four centers now provide modern rehabilitation services to people with disabilities. These include prosthetics, orthotics, physiotherapy, and mobility devices like wheelchairs and crutches.
