Overseas Pakistani Laborers
With the collaboration of the Ministry of National Health Services of Overseas Pakistanis and Human Resources Development, the government introduced the Sehat Insaaf card for overseas laborers. Because the overseas laborer can’t afford expensive medical treatment in Pakistan.
Due to this, many people die every year from cancer, Hepatitis C, heart diseases, kidney failure, and dialysis. Treatment of all these diseases is beyond the means of an average person with average income level.
For laborers, it is difficult to manage this costly treatment within hand-to-mouth home budget. Overall, this health program has been introduced in the 45 districts of Pakistan
The government is facilitating the overseas Pakistani laborers by presented the Sehat Inssaf card. This card will facilitate crucial circumstances like accidental cases, surgery, and further costly treatments.
To protect the nation and giving them a healthy life is the responsibility of the government. So, the government took an appreciable step for the laborers’ population.
Family including spouse and children will be treated under this card. For unmarried individuals who are the responsibility of their parents, can get themselves registered with NADRA B-Form. Each family has a financial cover of 720,000 in a year. The laborers families’ medical treatment will be covered by keeping within that specific budget.
Helping Overseas Pakistanis in Foreign Jails
The government of Pakistan (Tahreek-e-Insaaf) did many efforts to release Pakistani nationals who were ailing in Middle East jails for decades over crimes. It was a loss for the government and their families.
Because people go abroad to earn money but their needs make them compel to indulge in different kinds of criminalities. So, the government decided to talk with Middle East countries about prisoners.
Around more than 2600 Pakistani prisoners were in foreign jails just because of extended legal assistance of the Middle East. According to a news report, 6880 Pakistani jailbirds were in jails of Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Iran, Oman, Qatar, Kuwait, and Bahrain. Of these, 2612 were released after the government took an action.
