On 10th December, 2014 Malala became the first ever youngest person to be awarded the noble peace prize. The Pakistani born girl living in Swat, started with the small steps and a big dream to flourish the right of the children to get education, especially girls. But the burning ashes got the attention of the extremists who were not in favor of girls’ education. Despite the threats Malala continued to pursue her dream but on an unfortunate day the terror got with its evil wish and militants boarding her school shot her on the head along with two other girls. Luckily she survived the dramatic assault and made history. But the setback was not strong enough to shatter Malala’s dream in fact it provided her with the immense determination and fuel to work harder towards her goal. After she regained her health, she started to work with all her might to voice the right to get an education.
“One child, one teacher, one pen and one book can change the world” (Malala Yousafzai)
She can be called as the voice of all those suppressed and deprived of their rights and an activist for female education. Her courageous actions were recognized globally at every forum where she gained endless support and were closely tracked by the world media. It’s been three years to the plight and Malala’s torch has given light to so many deserving torches.
“This award is for all those children who are voiceless, whose voices need to be heard,” she said. “I speak for them, and I stand up with them.” (Malala Yousafzai)
Female education is a global plea which is heard and supported globally. Yet a lot more than just support is required to help out all the Malala’s in our country and to provide them with the resources to fulfill their zeal and zest to acquire an education and to earn a place amongst the learned.
We at NUR Foundation and Fatima Memorial Hospital congratulate Malala for being the pride of the nation and pursuing what she risked her life for. Her achievement is unparalleled and unequaled. We follow her dream to educate all the girls and light the beacon of knowledge. We need all the support possible. Our organization is aiding with your assistance all those needy children who have the hunger to learn and succeed in order to be the part of the mainstream. But it is only possible with your generous support as each penny counts. So please donate and donate to educate!

Tragedies and incidents seem to have become the norm of today on a global level from floods, wars, bomb blasts, earth quakes, and typhoons, senseless killings of school children to airplanes crashing, disappearing or simply shot down:
The year 2014 was a tough one for Pakistan which shook the nation to the core but as all resilient nations we carry on.
Pakistan had to face one of the worst floods in the history of the nation in 2012, lives were lost and scattered but we are rebuilding day by day.
Fatima Memorial Hospital played its small role by adopting 400 families in Habit Mastui in the district of Dera Ghazi Khan out of which almost 200 children needed to study. Fatima Memorial Hospital set up a small school for these children.
Today, after three years, the children are continuing with their education and the oldest kids are now in class 5. The classes are working their way up with each year as the children progress into the next session. These children are the future of Pakistan and the success of this country will be in their hands. We are educating them to lead the Nation to the future.
To continue this we need your support for this cause to make better future of these children.

Eid is celebrated by Muslims twice a year; the first is Eid-ul- Fitr and the second one is Eid-ul- Adha. It is a day of joy and happiness which people share with their families, friends and neighbors.
On this joyous occasion there are many families and children who are bereft of this joy because they are poor. Fatima Memorial Hospital intiated its education program in 1985 which provides primary and secondary education to children from less privileged backgrounds in the areas surrounding Lahore and the flood hit area of District Rahim Yar Khan. Today almost 1850 children study in our schools while
We make it our mission to provide every child studying in our schools to get a new outfit on Eid-ul-Fitr which comes after the fasting month of Ramadhan – this year it will be in July and it is tradition to wear new clothes and make lots of sweets and deserts.
We have started collecting clothes and toys for the upcoming Eid and hope not to disappoint even a single child this July.
We need your support to bring a smile to their angelic faces.
