Who is Ibrahim Badran
Tell me how he died? “No, I will tell you how he lived.”
For those who did not know Ibrahim Badran – Ibrahim was born on the 13th of July in 1986. He graduated from Jesuites School in 2003 with high honors, and graduated in 2010 from the Faculty of Medicine, Cairo University, also with high honors. He was aspiring to achieve the Vascular Surgery residency in the Kasr El Aini hospital, while also continuing his Master’s degree. Ibrahim dedicated most of his life to studying, and in the last 3 years, he committed all his time to treating patients and saving other people’s lives.
During September 2013, Ibrahim traveled to London for three months to achieve his Master’s degree and take part in a training course, in order to pass down his knowledge and skills in Egypt. On Friday the 14th of February 2014, while heading back home to 6 October area from a 48-hour shift, he was involved in a terrible accident right next to his house, where he was hospitalized immediately. Sadly, on Wednesday the 19th of February, Ibrahim passed away, leaving all his beloved ones in deep sorrow and grief. From there on, his family, friends and colleagues decided to keep his memory alive by creating a Charity Foundation under Ibrahim’s name. The Foundation carries his legacy by promoting medical care to unfortunate people, because this was Ibrahim’s dream and motive for 27 years: “sacrificing his life and time to save other people’s lives.” You will truly be missed always and forever in our hearts and prayers.
Since March 2014, Ibrahim A. Badran Charitable Foundation (IBF) came to life as the pioneer non-profit organization in delivering Medical Convoys to the underprivileged people in Egypt. Because the Foundation deeply recognizes the value of human life, we strive to deliver healthcare as a basic human right, regardless of people’s religions, political affiliations, races, genders and geographic locations.
With a lifelong mission, IBF aims to enhance the development and sustainability of healthcare in Egypt through effective strategies and equitable solutions. Among its unparalleled health services, IBF affords free consultations, complimentary treatments and comprehensive healthcare to Egypt’s marginalized communities.
Registered under the no. 2016/775, IBF was established in the loving memory of the young Dr. Ibrahim A. Badran, who had volunteered his time and skills in treating the less fortunate. With the aspiration to carry on his legacy, grieving family members, close friends and colleagues instinctively united together to create the Ibrahim A. Badran Charitable Foundation and inaugurated its Medical Convoys in April 2014.
With great compassion, Dr. Ibrahim endeavored to improve the lives of all those he encountered – an ambition he honored every day in his life; and it is that dream that we hope to fulfill for futures ahead on his behalf.
We believe in the value of every human life and strive to deliver proper healthcare to marginalized communities wherever they may be.
To deliver healthcare where it’s needed, for those who can’t afford it.
• Raising funds and expanding our medical capabilities, to reach more underserved areas as well as bridge the gap between proper healthcare and unprivileged peoples in Egypt.
• Affording more sustainable and proper healthcare to the unprivileged peoples, in effort to serve marginalized communities in Egypt.
The increasing overpopulation renders it impossible for the government to provide adequate healthcare for Egypt’s 90 million citizens, especially in rural areas where 57% of Egyptians reside according to the World Bank.
26% of Egyptians live below national poverty line, according to the 2015 UNDP Human Development Report on Egypt.
70% of Egyptians either solely depend on government sponsored healthcare or have no medical insurance at all (source: State Information Service).
Absence of public or private hospitals, healthcare units, and doctors in many villages puts at risk the survival of entire communities.
