Meet Majid. This 15 year old boy is the primary earner for his family in Pakistan. Majid was hit by a tractor, leaving him out of a job, with no money for an operation, and a starving family. More than 120 million people in Pakistan pay out of pocket for needed health care services. As a result, many are at risk of catastrophic expenditures that lead to a downward spiral of poverty or the possibility of becoming indebted for life.
One organization is trying to change this picture, by actively seeking patients who are at risk.
