Various studies in Pakistan have shown that Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus are among the most common birth defects in this country. While some hospitals do offer treatment, there are still cases in which surgery is withheld.

For parents of newborns that do receive surgical intervention, little to no information is available about the essential follow-up care and support for their children. One parent, Muhammad Mudassir, father of a 3-year-old girl, has decided that it is time to improve this situation. He wishes to establish a non-profit organisation fully dedicated to Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus in Pakistan.

To explain the need for change, Muhammad has written an informative article which describes the current situation of Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus in Pakistan. The article contains Muhammad's contact details for those interested in supporting him in his efforts to establish a Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus association in Pakistan.
