Last month, HOPE received a gift of over 650 boys' uniforms from Al-Salam School in Dubai. The uniforms consisted of polo shirts and trousers and were distributed to students of HOPE formal and home schools. Uniform distribution occurred in Kashmir, Muzaffargarh, Zia Colony, Thatta, and urban areas of Karachi.
HOPE students come from very poor backgrounds where families struggle to meet the basic needs of their children. HOPE USA wishes to extend their gratitude to the private donors who initiated this noble gesture and Al-Salam School in Dubai.
