Across the globe, Eid-ul-Fitr is a time of celeberation, family, friends, clothes and food. After a month of fasting in Ramazon, this joyous occasions reminds us that life is a struggle for many around us but on this day we can come together celeberate what the world has to offer.
We, at Fatima Memorial Hospital have an outreach program through which the hopsital runs the NUR Foundation Schools where almost 1850 boys and girls study today. These children come from impoverished backgrounds with big dreams looking towards a brighter future.
It is ensured that each child receives a new set of books and a complete uniform at the start of the year so there is no hurdle in the education each child gets at the school.
These children face the harsh realities of the world where even the smallest of wishes are not fullfilled; their needs, their desires are all kept hidden in the deep recess of there minds knowing that we can not have or can not want.
This does not dampen their spirit nor their motivation to learn or their joie de vivre. This motivates everyone who is part of the program to do more and help them secure a better future.
It is during these festive seasons that we want to provide each one of these a new set of clothes to enjoy Eid with their friends and family. Eid will be with us soon and your donation today will help us generate enough funds for this project.
Help us make them smile as nothing is more precious than a child’s innocent smile.
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.

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.
