Brick for Life is Indus Hospital’s expansion campaign which was initiated to help collect donation for the expansion of the Korangi Campus. The Indus Hospital started functioning with 150 beds in 2007, however, due to the growing number of patients, the hospital has been constantly increasing its capacity. Currently it has 300 beds which are insufficent to cater to the needs of patients coming from every nook and corner of the country. The hospital is underway another expansion and aiming at increasing its capacity by 1000 plus beds.
