Eid Ul Fitr: A time for happiness

The students

Eid-ul- Fitr is a Muslims celebration day that comes after holy month of fasting Ramadan. Muslims enjoy the blessings of Eid-ul-Fitr where after the 29 or 30 days of fasting. On this occasion Muslims share their happiness and joy with their friends and families. People wear new clothes, eat food after a moth of fasting and gave Eid gifts to children and their families. Besides that we don’t forget those who cannot buy new clothes for the Eid due to poor financial conditions. Eid brings the message of joy, love and happiness with your Muslim brother and sisters. At this auspicious moment everyone wants to have new clothes and get together.

We at Fatima Memorial hospital have an outreach program through which the hospital is running NUR Foundation schools where almost 1850 students are studying today. These students are from impoverished backgrounds where the concept of new cloths does not exist and they have to wear the old used clothes.

During this festive moment of Eid the student of our schools we like to gift  a new set of clothes as they have been wearing hand me downs the whole year.

Eid will be with us soon and your donations will help us to spread happiness among these children.

It's that time of the week again!

Lunch meals at the Gajjumatta School

There are no words to stress on the importance of a proper diet when children are growing up.

However, while we go on with our daily lives, we tend to overlook the plight of many who can’t even afford a decent meal.

Fatima Memorial Hospital has been running the NUR Foundation Schools through its community outreach program in the outskirts of Lahore and in Southern Punjab. Currently, there are 1850 students studying in the NUR Foundation schools who come from impoverished backgrounds and their parents can’t even afford basic necessities of life and education becomes a Secondary concern.

The schools make it a point to provide a new set of uniform each year along with books so a child continuously studies. Recently a program to provide lunch meals weekly was initiated for not only their nutritional growth but also for them to come together each week and feel a sense of companionship, boast morale and give them the strength to move forward together.

Seeing that twinkle in their eyes, their smiles is more than enough reason to continue with the program but we need your support and as it grows we hope to provide these children lunch meals on a daily basis.

Please donate generously and keep them smiling.

Fighting Arthritis for a better life

Everything around you feels beautiful when you are comfortable and content. Who does not want to enjoy the beauty this world has to offer but alas for many it isn’t so.

This 24 years old is a Rheumatoid Arthritis patient and was wheel chair bound and could not move around without it. This was due her deformed knee joints which resulted in her complete immobility.

Her treatment required complete replacement of her knees, which was impossible due to the costs incurred. Coming from a very impoverished background where her parents worked hard to make ends meet, an operation like this was out of the question.

She was finally brought to Fatima Memorial Hospital where the Arthritis Care Foundation (ACF) sponsored  the replacement of both her knees which costs Rs.400, 000.

The operation was successful and today she is completely free from all the crutches and wheelchairs that held her back giving her a new lease to life. ACF is treating many patients daily at Fatima Memorial Hospital and to continue with our purpose of healthier community we need your kind support. Our mission is to make Pakistan an arthritis free nation.

The disease can strike at any time and without proper care can lead to severe disabilities affecting patients for a lifetime. However, today through early diagnosis and extensive treatment rheumatologists can significantly help prevent disability and death in patients suffering from rheumatic diseases.

Rheumatic Diseases are the most common cause of physical disability all over the world

These stories give us hope and the strength to continue with our mission.
