Bali Old People’s Homes

Bali Memorial homes are the new homes for the elderly, where they can live dignified lives. Bali Memorial Trust established its first Old home for women in 2008 and an Old home for men was set up in 2012.

The rapidly changing socio-economic situation is impacting the family structures and values. Nowadays, elderly are sometimes viewed as a burden, especially in the low income class. Although it is very unfortunate, the reality cannot be wished away. Bali Memorial Trust helps them adjust to their new home by providing counselling and a place where they can freely express themselves, without losing their dignity.

Bali Memorial Homes provides their residents with the comforts of a well equipped home, with free medical care and 24 hours in-house aides. In addition to the full time residents, Bali Memorial homes also caters to those elderly people who need short term medical care – one to three months – and require a place to stay.

To cater to the rising demand, we plan to expand our operations in the future.

Bali Women’s Crisis Centre

We recognize that an empowered woman means an empowered community, however we live in a society where women face numerous problems due to the patriarchal values embedded in our local culture and traditions. Roughly 50-90% of the women in Pakistan experience some form of gender-based violence, whether it be emotional or physical abuse, and due to our customs they are not able to break the cycle of abuse.

Bali Memorial Women Crisis Centre focuses on full rehabilitation and self-fulfilment of Gender Based Violence victims. Our aim is to provide a temporary safe shelter to women who are in any crisis whether financial, psychological, legal or medical. We focus on creating a strong support system for these women, which is imperative in enabling them to take charge of their own lives. The shelter is well equipped to deal with women in distress and provides them with the necessary health care; safety and counselling through seamless service delivery.

Our objective is to empower these women so that they can support themselves and become strong and active members of the society. We encourage them to pursue their areas of interest by providing them with the relevant vocational trainings, which will also help them to find jobs and become financially independent, as well as improve their self esteem by giving them a sense of value. In November 2012, USAID and Aurat Foundation technically and financially supported Bali women’s Crisis Centre for a period of one year through their Gender Equity Program, Grant Cycle 6 A- strengthening Women shelters. The collaboration enhanced the capacity of service providers along with providing material resources for women empowerment.

Presently, we have the facilities to cater for women who are accompanied with their children. Bali Memorial Women Crisis Centre is fully supportive in helping the women achieve their goals of financial independence and in doing so we provide them and their children with any educational and medical needs they may have.

Bali Memorial Health Services

In 1999, Bali Memorial Trust launched two dispensaries, one in Ladhke Bhullar and one in Mian Mir to cater to the ever rising demand for proper health care. The purpose of Bali Memorial Trust is to provide the underprivileged access to affordable health services.

After the overwhelming positive response from the local residents to the dispensaries, Bali Memorial decided to expand these services and as of 2014 there are a total of 2 two hospitals and 7 local dispensaries and clinics in low-income areas of Lahore. The dispensaries provide 80 percent of the medication for free, while the rest is subsidized. These clinics are staffed with MBBS qualified doctors who treat an average of 50 – 55 patients daily at each clinic.
