Helping those who need it the most

The destruction
The destruction

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.

Supporting the needs of our children

Incidents and disasters are the part of this world and are unplanned and unknown to everyone. In the past few years, we have faced typhoons, hurricanes, earthquakes, floods, blasts and the tragedies of war. These calamities take away lives, homes, livelihood affecting the poorest of them all who do not have the capacity to rebuild.

Similarly, in 2010 one of worst flood in the history of the country hit the population specially in South Punjab. The deluge took away everything and for some there was nothing left except memories. Lives and everything that was held dear the water took away leaving the population with despair.

Life is being rebuilt steadily but slowly and basic necessities such as food health services and education are now being provided in the area,

After that 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.

Today after four years, the school continues to provide an education to ensure a future that is brighter removed from the effects of hardships, pain these children have faced at such an early age.

This is the generation who will become productive members of society and take Pakistan forward. .

We need your continued support our vision to educate our children.

We tend to forget

The past few years have been full of natural and man-made disasters striking humanity across the globe. From Tsunamis, hurricanes, earth quakes, famine, floods, bomb blast and the tragedies of war.

Our attention tends to move from one calamity after the other, this result in the affected getting initial help but they are left to their own devices after a month or two; usually the ones suffering the most are the poorest of  that area who are not able to recover and live normally due to financial constraints.

The floods of 2010 in Pakistan were one of the worst ever seen in county's history – and today after fours years there is life being rebuilt but it is a slow laborious process. However, certain things must continue i.e. the provision of basic nutrition, health and education.

After the preliminary damage assessment, Fatima Memorial Hospital set up a school in Habit Mastui, District Dera Ghazi Khan in Southern Punjab to educate the children of the flood affectees.

Still going strong after three years we hope to continue with our success and keep educating the children in the area. We believe that a solid education will be the means for these children to excel in the future.

This is the generation that will take our nation forward and we believe in investing in their lives and their futures

Today we ask for your support to help us expand and sustain the project – We ask for a long term commitment, a commitment to be with us when a child of five enters our school and finally graduates through your help.

Picking up the pieces

All may be lost but I will trudge forward
All may be lost but I will trudge forward

In the past five years, earth has faced many disasters such as typhoons, hurricanes, floods, earthquakes tsunamis resulting in a very large loss of life; infrastructure and the lives work of countless.

Just imagining losing everyone you love, everything you have worked for and all that you have achieved is all gone leaving you with nothing and wondering how will pick the pieces of my life is heart-wrenching.

 The floods of 2010 in Pakistan were one of the worst ever seen in county's history – it has been three years and earlier this year the country faced the floods again but thankfully the destruction was a lot less.

We tend to move on from one disaster to another but picking up the pieces and rebuilding is a long laborious process which takes time.

After the preliminary damage assessment we set up a school in Habit Mastui, District Dera Ghazi Khan in Southern Punjab to educate the children of the flood affectees who were left with literally nothing and were trying to rebuild their lives in whatever way they could.

We are trying to help out in whatever means we can by adopting the families of that area. The setting up of the school and the education it provides will prove to be a strong base for the future of the students studying there.

It has been a tough as the location of habit mastui is in the interior of the province of Punjab surrounded by small villages and the initial zeal of new donors does diminish over time.

Today we ask for your support to help us expand and sustain the project – We ask for a long term commitment, a commitment to be with us when a child of five graduates from school through your help.

In 2010, the floods in Pakistan were one of the worst ever seen in county's history.

It destroyed lives and everything they worked for and their parents had worked for in one instance.

The damage was huge from infrastructure, homes, and livestock to arable land and most importantly the lives lost during this calamity.

After the preliminary damage assessment we set up a school in Habit Mastui, District Dera Ghazi Khan in Southern Punjab to educate the children of the flood affectees who were left with literally nothing and were trying to rebuild their lives in whatever way they could.

We are trying to help out in whatever means we can by adopting the families of that area. The setting up of the school and the education it provides will prove to be a strong base for the future of the students studying there.

The students sat for their annual exams

It was a proud moment when children sat for their yearly exams to be promoted to the next class. The perseverance and hard work of our team has borne fruit and to see so many children moving to the next step of their lives gives us the encouragement to keep working. We are hopeful that with the support of donors like you we can not only continue with educating the students we have but also induct new students who we have to turn away due to the shortage of funds.

With your help, we hope to continue with our mission and move forward.

On to the next class
