Adele Mirza visited her mother-in-law, Haleema, in 2003 in Dhoke Mian Abdul Wahab, Pakistan. There she met some women and children who needed medical care. She provided some money for them to see a doctor and get treatment, but found out that in spite of her financial assistance these women and children could not access treatment. Women in this part of the world are trapped in these villages and cannot travel to big towns unaccompanied to get help for themselves or for their children. This is because of poverty, lack of education and most of all cultural taboos. At that moment she asked the family members if there was a piece of land where a small clinic/hospital could be built for the people of this remote area.
Adele thought if these women and children are unable to get to a hospital or to a private clinic let us build a healthcare facility on their land located between two villages. Adele decided to sell her house in Parker, Colorado USA, and moved to Pakistan to build and manage the facility. That was the beginning of her vision. The vision came to life in 2006 when the building was completed with tremendous efforts of some good people. The Haleema Welfare Clinic was opened on April 15, 2007.
Since its opening Haleema Welfare Clinic has provided free medical and mental health treatment to thousand of families in the area.
