Picking up the pieces

All may be lost but I will trudge forward
All may be lost but I will trudge forward

In the past five years, earth has faced many disasters such as typhoons, hurricanes, floods, earthquakes tsunamis resulting in a very large loss of life; infrastructure and the lives work of countless.

Just imagining losing everyone you love, everything you have worked for and all that you have achieved is all gone leaving you with nothing and wondering how will pick the pieces of my life is heart-wrenching.

 The floods of 2010 in Pakistan were one of the worst ever seen in county's history – it has been three years and earlier this year the country faced the floods again but thankfully the destruction was a lot less.

We tend to move on from one disaster to another but picking up the pieces and rebuilding is a long laborious process which takes time.

After the preliminary damage assessment we set up a school in Habit Mastui, District Dera Ghazi Khan in Southern Punjab to educate the children of the flood affectees who were left with literally nothing and were trying to rebuild their lives in whatever way they could.

We are trying to help out in whatever means we can by adopting the families of that area. The setting up of the school and the education it provides will prove to be a strong base for the future of the students studying there.

It has been a tough as the location of habit mastui is in the interior of the province of Punjab surrounded by small villages and the initial zeal of new donors does diminish over time.

Today we ask for your support to help us expand and sustain the project – We ask for a long term commitment, a commitment to be with us when a child of five graduates from school through your help.

Through this platform, we don’t ask for your donation, we ask for your lifelong commitment

Counting our blessings

We want to see the light
We want to see the light

We never do count our blessing looking for more, asking for more, wanting more but one rare glimpse around us will help us realize that the little things in life are to be the most thankful for.

 

The gift of sight might come to most of us naturally but for some it is an eternal darkness enshrouding them forever. However, today with the latest technology there are certain types of blindness which can be treated. 

 

One of the most common reasons for visual impairment in Pakistan is Cataract and thankfully there are now ways to treat it; making patients see the colours of the rainbow for the first time.

 
Fatima Memorial Hospital arranged a Cataract camp through which 150 patients received the gift of sight. The hospital hopes to treat 150 patients bi-annually after achieving our initial target. Today we ask for your help to give us the chance to utilize our resource of personnel, equipment & the hospital to give us sight to another 150 patients.

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.

I love Pencils!

Hello there! 

My name is Ahmad  and I am in grade 4. I am studying in the NUR Foundation School since 2011. I really like it there and each year we get a new set of uniform and all my books. Let’s not forget my stationary, I love pencils – they are my favorite.

These are the little children we serve through our schools of the outreach program and they deserve a better live and a better chance in the future.

While we do not have the financial resources to be able to do all that we want to but we believe in doing the best we can to see these little angels smile.

These children come from impoverished backgrounds where the concepts of new clothes simply does not exist and they are forced to wear hand me downs or buy second hand clothing.

Every year during Eid we try to provide new clothes to the students as we believe every child born deserves to have an educations, sustenance and clothing. We do not have capacity or the financial resources to provide for everyone but we hope to increase the number with your help this Eid.

Please help us spread smiles on the faces of these innocent angels.
