34ô North, 73ô East. 2030 meters (6600 ft)altitude Himalayan region in Jhelum Valley of Azad Kashmir, 190 kilometers from Islamabad and 62 kilometers from Azad Kashmir's Capital Muzaffarabad, Noon Bagla is a small village. It used to be the hub of Chikar and Khawara Valleys containing dozens of villages and summer settelments before earthquake. At dead-end of small road Noon Bagla is remote and isolated now as the shops and business destroyed in the earthquake and no heed is given to this village after the calamity.  

For decades there is no development in the area particularly the Noon Bagla. Thick pine forests once used to be the master piece of nature shrunk because of illegal and un controlled chopping of the trees and smuggling. Constitutionally Noon Bagla is named as Health Resort but, the 2 rooms Tourist Rest House is now a ghost house after the damage by earthquake and negligence of authorities.  

Majority of male population of Noon Bagla and its surrounding works in cities of Pakistan. Countable people are serving in several government departments and therefore have stable source of income. More then 95% work as daily wagers, in distant cities.

Lack of financial resources affects the life and living standard of the people. They cannot afford good food, better education and reasonable health. The little they earn is spent on basic food and other requirements of daily life. Consequently the youth supposed to be in universities and technical institutions works hundreds of miles away from their families. Remaining back in the villages are the women, the children and the aged males too fragile to work now.  

It is not possible for an individual or a single NGO to change the destiny of these resourceless, neglected people. Large scale planning and huge long term investment is required to educate and train the people, and set up an infrastructure for sustainable evolution.
AHS Foundation chose Noon Bagla for its activities because of region's isolation. Our mission is to reach for serving the most deserving, secluded, deprived, and resource less section of the society, which  is indeed the genuine help. Habitations on remote hilltops are thinly scattered which hardly get attention of  society or authorities. Therefore, they suffer a lot for very minor requirements.
We thank God and our friends for the privilege of serving in difficult area for last 11 years and willing to continue till long with help of our friends. 


BHC (Basic Health Centre) in Noon Bagla is basis of Hope to huge population of the area. Our record shows that people come from distant villages walking on foot for two to three hours. The reason is nonexistence of reliable health facilities and lack of health professionals in the area.

Initially our plan was to build the facility, run it for a year and then hand it over to the local government authorities but, the people, who are the actual owner of the facility don’t want us do, as we planned. They humbly request AHS Foundation to run, manage and supervise the health centre. 

People, who reach the facility for help are the owner of BHC. Local community team called HMC (Hospital Management Committee) selected by the community on AHS Foundation’s demand is actively involved and plays role of their part.

The HMC works freely on behalf of the community. It is a platform for the people to give their opinion regarding services, attitude, atmosphere, and or complains as well as a source of information for AHS Management. Infect, HMC is the body who takes decision for local staff, takes care of the facility, and advices or proposes AHS Foundation.

Chairman of HMC and two members who are available at anytime are selected from Noon Bagla by the public. This committee is assisted by at least one or two community leaders from each surrounding villages who sit together once in a while to view, review, suggest or request the activities. Our management and the public don’t interact directly but both sides use this body as bridge, to avoid any misunderstanding, favoritism, individual involvement and other issues regarding public deal.

Safe, secure and friendly atmosphere at our BHC prevails for everyone. We make sure that those who come to seek help, must feel a sense of ownership, maintaining their prestige and ego they get their humanity right not a donation or a favor but a friendly gift.

It is therefore, the people feel it home when they visit BHC particularly the women and the children with complete trust and hope. Not a single individual ever tried to harm the facility or neglect caring for it.


When possible and available, we conduct medical camps or facilitate other Social Organizations to do the same. We do our best to get qualified physician, gynecologist, ENT and child specialist. Since the population of the area is thinly scattered in vast area, we announce through verbal message, leaflets, phone calls and megaphone announcement from each village mosque prior to the date of camps.

We thank Mrs. Saleha Khawaja, Zakia Abbasi, ALSHIFA EYE TRUST, RURAL HEALTH, RDN CHIKAR, and others who come to help.

We were not expecting that the facility will become such a big respite for women, children and elders. Our computerized record from April 2012 shows that the service is more fruitful than presumed, and is benefiting majority of circumscribed to environment women, children or older people of region who come from as far as two hours and a half  and more,walk on foot.
We don’t vaccinate our self but facilitate the vaccination programs. Every Monday the EPI(Immunization Program) and once in a month officially deployed government teams for Mother Child Care use our facility for women and children. We’ve provided space for vaccine storage and record at our BHC. Mothers bring their children for schedule immunization every Monday. Other national or international campaigns regarding health are conducted from AHS BHC not only free of cost, but we also arrange for their food and refreshment at our BHC so that they can easily serve the people.
