Cure Our World

Cure Our World by Medical Relief International (MRI) we are only too aware of the fact that so far as children are concerned, they are often the main victims of some deadliest diseases and infections. For example in Pakistan, Acute respiratory infections (ARI) affect 51% of the population. Among the victims of ARI, most vulnerable are children whose immune systems have been weakened by malnutrition. In 2006 there were 16,056,000 reported cases of ARI, out of which 25.6% were children under the age of five. Had there been adequate preventative mechanisms in place at the time, medical research has shown, a large number of these cases and subsequent fatalities would have been prevented at the diagnosis stage which would have stopped or seriously hindered the spread of this potentially life-threatening disease.
