Shifa Foundation

Established in 1991, Shifa Foundation is a Not-for-Profit organization that focuses on health, nutrition, and Safe Water for deprived segments of Pakistan. We truly believe that standard health, education, and nutrition facilities lead to the elimination of poverty from a nation. Since our existence, we have developed our technical expertise along with a better understanding of community engagement, health and hygiene practices, and nutrition.
