Children are weird creatures, they absorb everything love, sadness, pain, anger and an education.
Today we live in a world filled with despair and desolation with so many moving forward in a state which offers no future promises or a purpose but a life just for the sake of living.
The Community Outreach Program initiated by Fatima Memorial Hospital with is NUR Foundation Schools hopes to provide that purpose to the 1850 children currently studying in the surrounding areas of the metropolis of Lahore.
The current state of education in Pakistan may not be what it should be but we all can play our part in making it better. With your help we hope to sustain and expand our project! So do not hesitate and donate today and bring a smile to a child’s life.
Salma is been with us for almost 8 years and this is what she has to say
“I am 11 years and in class 5th studying at the NUR Foundation School since 2006. I have been here since kindergarten and math is my favourite subject. I just get math :) ” Salma
Please donate today and change lives.
Danish is 13 years old from Misrishah, Lahore hailing from a family of four - his father, mother and a younger brother.
Danish’s father is not able to work because he has complicated diabetic retinopathy and retinal detachment leading to legal blindness. His mother who is a housewife makes ends meet by sewing clothes and earns around 10,000 Rupees which in today’s economic condition makes for a difficult life. His grandmother pitches in and pay for the rent of the house where the family lives in.
Not to give up on the hand that life has forced upon them the parents still sent the children to a local school where the fees is 400 Rupees each to ensure a better future for both the children.
Danish suffered from trauma in the left eye 2 ½ years ago which led to traumatic cataract. This further added to the problems already faced by the family but Fatima Memorial Hospital was able to treat his cataract with surgery. His vision has significantly improved and we hope he is able to pave his way through life and achieve all his dreams which include getting a solid education and one day supporting his family.
Fatima Memorial Hospital feels honoured to be able to change the lives of so many and will like to continue doing so through your help.
The Holy month of Ramadan this year will be with us at the end of June, a time to be thankful of the bounties bestowed upon us and be aware of the needs of the people that surround us.
It is the Islamic month of fasting where Muslims fast from sunrise to sunset and this year it is in the middle of the summer and can be as long as 15 hours.
As a not for profit hospital we serve patients from all walks of life for whom medical treatment is out of reach due to severe economic problems.
These patients are accompanied by their families who are not able to buy food to break their fast as funds are scarce and cannot be wasted even if it means not eating for the whole day.
To fix the heart wrenching realities of each patient might not be in our reach but during the holy month we ensure the patients and their families don’t have to worry about where their next meal in the month of Ramazan will come from.
We are thankful for the opportunity that we have to serve the less fortunate and we are even more thankful for your support for the month of Ramadan.
We have kept the tradition alive for more than three decades but with the devaluing currency, inflation and economic conditions it is becoming harder and harder with each passing year.
With your help we hope to continue like we always had.
Please donate generously for this cause as everyone deserves a meal after he or she breaks his or her fast.
