Medicine is one of the most honourable and noble professions because it directly touches the lives of people by curing their ailments and saving their precious lives. According to The Holy Quran, the one who saves life is greater than the one who takes a life. This puts doctors to the pedestal and makes them the epitome of nobility. Lately the world went through a real hard time. We all fought with the pandemic but the doctors were at the front row. Health is the most important thing in the world the pandemic taught us. Talking about Pakistan, the country somehow remained safer than the rest of the world, it relatively saw lesser casualties.

The hospital not only facilitates patients but it also creates awareness among people about multiple things. For instance, mental health, before MASH, mental issues were no less than a taboo for the people of Multan rather they never considered it a serious medical problem. MASH opened a clinic with the name of “Spring Clinic” which is devoted to cure mental issues. Many well-learned and experienced psychologists and psychiatrists practice here and also educate people about the seriousness of such problems and how important it is to take care of mental well-being.
