RHEMN was founded on 1st January 2014 by Muhammad Ahmad Saddiq. Muhammad was inspired to set up this volunteer platform to give the rural communities a chance to access quality healthcare services. He has lost very close friends and relatives to preventable diseases such as tuberculosis and birth complications simply because they couldn’t access healthcare at good time. Muhammad was specifically terrified by the dead of his brother’s wife in 2010 who died barely 4 weeks after delivery en-route to hospital but couldn’t made to the clinic and was buried by the road side. As a medical personnel, he believes that simple postnatal care such as supply of haematinics and simple PCV check would have prevented her dead or provided early diagnosis. He was again blown into humanitarian service by the constant memory of the dead of his immediate elder brother who died from tuberculosis in 2012 because he couldn’t access Anti TB treatment at good time and was overwhelmed by complications when it was detected simply because of distance. His experiences growing up in rural community has constantly kept him awake and on focus to bring the needed help to the grass-root communities. These two experiences feeds his passion and motivations to his work.
