The same group of philanthropic expatriate Pakistanis, who in 1987 founded Tameer-e-Millat Foundation to promote education in Pakistan, also established Shifa International Hospital a state-of-the-art tertiary care medical facility in the heart of Islamabad in 1993.
Parallel to that, in 1992 Shifa Foundation (SF) was also set up for providing affordable medical treatment to deserving patients. At the moment, SF is offering inexpensive in-patient and out-patient facilities to less privileged communities. In addition, SF is also running internationally recognized medical institutions; Shifa College of Medicine and Shifa College of Nursing.
Tameer-e-Millat Foundation and Shifa Foundation are sister organizations, each working in its own area for the progress, development and uplifting of the nation. Where the former is catering to the ethical, moral and spiritual health of the nation by means of knowledge and education, the latter is easing pain and suffering of our under-privileged brethren and also developing healing hands for the future. After the launch of Shifa Tameer-e-Millat University (STMU), Educational services rendered by both TMF and SF will come under one umbrella.
