hygiene Kits & construcation of Toilets for girls

Lack of good toilets and hygiene education is a big problem in rural communities in Pakistan. This project intent to construct ventilated toilets and provides hygiene education to the targeted communities especially girls and women to reduce diarrhea related illnesses by 25% to 50%. Joy Foundation proposes to construct 50 toilets that will serve over 300 individuals including 60% girls and women, for over 15 years. Through toilets and hygiene kits facility will ensure safety for girls and women.

Few months ago Joy Foundation post this project on Global giving to have some funds to help the poor girls for their hygiene problems and also for the toilet issues as in Pakistan girls when they go to the toilet in open areas have many problems. It’s really an important problem of our community and need some support of our friends and those who love to support the girls in the world. I hope some we have some funds for this project and able to help the poor girls in this case.

You small will make big change in the life of poor girls in our area.

I hope to have some positive response from all our brother and sisters.

Children and their parents were happy after receiving these gifts and paid thanks to our team and our donors for taking care of the children.

 Free Medical Camp in affected area:

Successful medical camps were possible only with the support of our donor, doctors, helpers, local committee and volunteer team of Joy Foundation. Joy Foundation made awareness in flood affected area to enhance them with full information of the medical camp. Apart from limited time that it took to advertise, we were overwhelmed by the response, and managed to see a vast number of patients contrary to our expectations. Praise God for enabling us to successfully carry out all the medical camp and secondly we are grateful Dominican sisters of Malta and there team who came to the services in a good number with courage and dedication to render their services with one heart.

The organization's objective of setting up free medical campin affected areas was to assist the poor people who could not get proper medical services in the area. The outcome of the medical camp was extremely positive as over 371 patients of various ages were reviewed and treated for different types of ailments.

Solar system for the school children

Joy Foundation raised donation for provision of solar panels and water filter in the Joy Foundation School through crowd funding on GlobalGiving. Although we could not raise the required amount for the project but we raised enough for fulfilling the electricity needs of the school and provided 2 solar panels for the school. Through these 2 solar panels Joy Foundation provided electricity supply in 3 rooms of the school. Lights, fans, battery for the panels and wiring materials were all purchased and installed in the school. Now the children can study in classrooms which have enough light for them to study.

As the village has no electricity many parents refused to send their children to school before, which not only badly affected the schools strength but was also a great loss for children as it was affecting their education. After the provision of electricity in the school children are now regularly attending the classes. The teachers told that it is now much easy for them to teach the children in school as fans are a great facility in summers and it is also comfortable for children to study in properly lit classrooms, they also told that the parents are now sending the children to school regularly which is good for children and they can cover their school syllabus in the required time.

Joy Foundation would like to take the opportunity to thank all the friends and donors for supporting the project. Together we served for a good cause. Although we still couldn’t raise enough for providing the children with water filter facility but we are thankful to all who gave generous donations which fulfilled the electricity needs. We hope that the water needs will also be fulfilled soon. Thanks to all the donors for their support, keep supporting Joy Foundation for the good work and assist the deserving communities to fulfill their needs.
