Time to share smiles

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

Eid Ul Fitr: A time for happiness

The students
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 almost that time of the year again

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.

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.

My new clothes for Eid

This little girl also has dreams

Across the Muslim world, Eid ul Fitr is celebrated with fervor and zeal as it marks the end of the blessed month of Ramazan. The holy month of fasting is a time of spiritual reflection for all Muslims, to be thankful for the bounties they are blessed with and realize the needs of the less fortunate.

Eid ul Fitr is a time of joy celebrated with family where gifts are exchanged, good food laid out on the table and most importantly brand new clothes. But, alas not everyone is able to celebrate this joyous day and we at Fatima Memorial Hospital try to do our bit every year by providing new clothes to children studying at the schools of the institution’s outreach program every Eid.

We are proud to say the number of children our schools have grown to 1850 who are studying in the peri-urban areas of Lahore i.e. Malik Pur, Lakhudair, Nain Sukh & Talwara. The outreach program further expanded its reach and setup a school flood hit area of Habit Mastui in Dist. D.G.Khan in South Punjab.

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.

Sometimes we do not realize our blessing but meeting these determined little souls who studying for their future against all odds makes you thankful for what we have been blessed with. Today we ask for your help so we can spread smiles during this blessed festival with new clothes.
