Disasters are the part of this world that are unplanned and unbeknown to everyone; destroying lives, livelihoods, buildings and whatever that may come in its way. They come in the form of typhoons, hurricanes, earthquakes, tsunamis, volcano eruptions and floods. As a result of the devastations they bring basic infrastructure and the way of life is disrupted to such a degree that sometimes there is no going back.
in 2010, heavy floods struck Pakistan; the water took everything leaving behind a trail of destruction, death and tragedy. Countless died, lost homes and everything they had; the only thing that survived was the memories of what life once was.
Today, after four years life is being rebuilt slowly but steadily, basic necessities are being taken care of such as food, health services and education.
After preliminary damage assessment Fatima Memorial Hospital opened a school in Habit Mastui, District Dera Ghazi Khan in Southern Punjab to educate the children affected by the flood.
This is the generation who is the future, the generation who will take us forward, the generation who will lead the nation tomorrow. .
We need your continuous support for our cause and help us in building their future.

The situation of Education today in Pakistan is not satisfactory, because of which Pakistan is considered to be one of the most under-developed countries on the globe today.
The recent survey reports disclosed that Pakistan’s literacy rate has stagnated at 58%, which means that half of the population is unable to read and write. There are so many contributing factors behind this steady decline; today 32% of children aged between 5-9 years are out of school and 17% of primary schools consist of a single room.
Fatima memorial hospital decided to play its role in developing communities with the initiation of its outreach program in 1985 to provide the basic health facilities to people of distant areas: In 1996, FMH opened the doors to the first NUR Foundation School. Today, 18,000 children have crossed through these schools and completed their primary education.
Currently, 1850 children study in these schools and they are also provided with a set of books and uniforms each year. With your help we want to continue with our program and hopefully expand it further,
“I enjoy coming to School”
Hello! My name is Ahmad and I am in Grade 4. I am studying here in the NUR Foundation School since 2011. I really enjoy coming to school. I have so many friends here and I like to spend time here with them. I like reading books, the stories in the books are my favorite.

Eid comes with the feeling of joy, of family and family gathering together, of food laden tables with gifts and new clothes. Throughout the world Muslims celebrate Eid after the fasting month of Ramadan and it an occasion celebrated by all. .
However, this is not the case for so many who can’t afford a decent meal on the day of Eid let alone new clothes. It is tragic to learn that there are so many who are not familiar with the idea of new clothes and the good food because they simply don’t expect to have it.
For all Muslims, especially children the concept of Eid is filled with lots of excitement and anticipation. It is in the spirit of Islamic traditions and also natural to wish to wear new clothes on such occasion. It is very disheartening to see that not all children have the luxury to afford new clothes on Eid.
Fatima Memorial Hospital introduced an outreach program according to which the Hospital is running the NUR Foundation Schools where 1850 students are educated; these students belong to poor families who cannot afford an education but they do have dreams of a brighter future.
We will humbly request everyone reading this to play their part in helping us get new kids for all the students who study in our schools for this special occasion.
Every child deserves a smile and you can make it happen
