Dilawar Hussain Foundation was born in 2011. We began as a humble effort in Garhi Shahu locality of Lahore. Our work is devoted in providing much needed support, guidance and hope to those who struggle with diabetes.
Today around 20 million Pakistanis have diabetes. 8.5 million of these do not even know they have it. We have been battling with this lack of awareness since 2011 and have been working to address this serious and growing public health crisis. Our priority is to set up best in class diabetes management centers across Pakistan so as to facilitate prevention, management and awareness of diabetes.In this annual report, you will see the results of our efforts in these areas and more. Your support is what makes it possible for us to run our programs. We are so grateful to everyone who supports our vital, life changing work. Together we are building a stronger tomorrow for all of those whose lives are affected by diabetes.

“Amazing organization. Unlike others they really do care about diabetics like me. I am being treated here since ----- and had on and off chest pains. They referred me to Punjab Institute of Cardiology where I was just in time for the treatment of two blocked arteries!”
“Being diagnosed with diabetes was a very sad day in my life. I thought haven’t I been shunned enough in my life. Do I need more misery? I felt as if life was meting away from me. I am Bobby; a 54-year-old transgender living in Lahore. I went in circles after my diagnosis until I reached Dilawar Hussain Foundation. They helped not only in managing my condition but eased me out of depression as well. I am truly and deeply indebted to them.”
“They have changed my life. They showed me that I can lead a normal healthy life and support my family. I am Farida. I am a widow and l live in Haji Musa Colony in Garhi Shahu with my son. My neighbor referred me to them two and a half years ago. My diabetes was uncontrolled, and I felt sick all the time. Ever since being under their treatment, my diabetes is well managed. I have never felt happier in my life!”
