Australian Multicultural Charity (AMC) was established in 2012 to transform the lives of those in need. Pakistan has a population of over 240 million, and people are living in extreme poverty. Healthcare infrastructure is weak, clean drinking water is not accessible, illiteracy and marginalization of women is prevalent. All of these issues have had a crippling impact on the quality of human life.
AMC is a Not-for-Profit organisation registered in Australia with Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission, it does not have the status of a tax eligible charity.
The objective of AMC is to provide quality health care, education to kids, clean water and financial assistance to needy families, absolutely free of cost. The activities of AMC include creating awareness about the efforts of Overseas Pakistanis, arranging fundraising events, mobilizing individual and corporate volunteers to support the team with finances, knowledge and skill transfer.
Australian Multicultural Charity is an initiative taken by an Australian of Pakistani (Mr. Sher Afzal Khan) origin expatriate and supported by the wider community in Australia.
We believe that all people (especially the orphans, aged, disabled, oppressed and widowed) irrespective of race, class, creed or political considerations, are entitled to: A peaceful, just, healthy and dignified life; Participate in free choice; First class education and training; Thrive and enjoy the fruits of their labor; A secure and an environmentally sustainable future.
A just, equitable and sustainable world in which every person enjoys the right to a life of dignity, freedom from poverty Sickness and all forms of oppression.
We believe secure, informed, intellectual, productive and just societies emerge when wealth and resources are distributed effectively to those that are most in need with the intent that those communities are empowered through education, training and self sustainability programs.
AMC will provide specialist health care services to as many people in Remote Areas of Pakistan as possible who have health care needs that they cannot access through the public health system and cannot afford private health care.
Australian Multicultural Charity will provide specialist health care services to as many people in remote areas of Pakistan specifically in a remote area of Thar (Mirpurkhaas), Sindh as possible who have health care needs that they cannot access through the public health system and cannot afford private health care.
It will only address the unmet needs and not compete with either the public or private health care systems.
All services will be provided by volunteers with the support of a minimal number of employees.
The standard of health care will, in all instances, equal or exceed that expected of the public health system.
A utilitarian approach will be followed with services being provided to as many individuals as possible within the available resources (the greatest good for the greatest number).
The services provided will change with time in an effort to keep in step with the changing unmet health care needs of the community.
The Trust will pursue sound, transparent financial practices, and exercise good stewardship of its resources.
It will always remain true to The Enduring Vision and keep faith with community supporters as a charity hospital, with the single purpose of serving the unmet health care needs of the community, have the word ‘Charity’ in the hospital name and be staffed by volunteers.
If adequate charitable giving is not sustained the hospital will close and The Trust will be wound up. It will never be turned into a business and depart from The Enduring Vision as has happened to other formerly charitable health care institutions.
There is a moral imperative and a professional responsibility to address the unmet health care needs in the community we have the honor to serve.
