Motivation Behind Marham. Pk
Here is an interesting story about what inspired him to start a system like Marham. Pk.
Ehsan lost his dear father, unable to access proper medical assistance. It revealed the bogus structure of Pakistan’s medical care system.
Another incident motivated him further in this connection.
He visited the emergency department of one of the most extensive government setups. He was there to share his blood with the bomb affectees. The scenario was enough to leave unscratched scars in his memory with scenes full of pain and misery.
He witnessed several people bringing in dead and pleading with the doctors to bring them back to life by giving them the oxygen supply. The patients were wandering here and there to find the right doctor paying huge medical bills.
Here came the point which shook him completely. But he was not a weak man to blame the government or people in authority for all this negligence, and he stepped forward by himself to share his part in the well-being of Pakistani society.
As we know that every startup undergoes one common mental stress. Will it be successful? But he was lucky enough to make his dreams come true. It was not as simple as having a piece of cake, and the venture required a great deal of effort and planning.
With the grace of God and his teammate’s endless efforts, he was eventually successful in launching this great platform which we all know as Marham. Pk.
The journey does not end here, and he has several lofty plans to make it even bigger and more accessible to the people of Pakistan.
