Fatima Memorial Hospital has been running its Community outreach program since 1985 with Mobile Health Units in the outreach areas of Lahore. In 1996, after assessing the needs of the community the program was expanded to education with the inception of the NUR Foundation Schools. We proud to say that through the hard work and commitment of our team since than over 18,000 children have completed their schooling and currently 1850 students study in our schools in the outskirts of Lahore
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
These children come from very impoverished backgrounds and the hospital ensures that things like new uniforms, stationary and books are provided for so a child faces no hurdles in the course of their education. However, our humble efforts are sometimes in vain as some of these children are deprived of basic needs of life and that is a good meal.
How will this project solve this problem?
Given the lack of finance we have started serving all the students lunch meals every week however this is not enough and through this platform we hope to sustain this project and hopefully convert this initiative to a daily basis.
Potential Long Term Impact
Healthy Children means a Healthy Future and we hope through this project we can provide these children the basic need of sustenance which is their basic human right.
