Contents

Ambulances

The Chhipa Welfare Association runs a number of ambulance centres in Karachi. The ambulances are basic vans with room for a stretcher, for transportation to a hospital but without any medical staff in the ambulance.

Palna

The association provides a means for people who are unable to care for their newborn children to give them up for adoption, as an alternative to abandoning the child, and to lessen the risk of infanticide. The ambulance centres include a palna (lit. "cradle") where people can leave their babies; the Chhipa Association can then arrange for the infant to be adopted.

Sacrificial animals

The ambulance centres also accept animals that have been sacrificed on the occasion of a child's birth (Aqiqah) or as other forms of voluntary charity (Sadaqah). These sacrifices are prepared as food for people with a low income.
