Eid-ul-Fitr is celebrated after a month of fasting and sighting of the new moon. The moon sighting is met with joy and jubilation to celebrate the end of the fasting month. Eid-ul-Fitr is marked by food, festivities, Eidis (money packets for children) and new clothes. While this may be a joyous occasion met with happiness and smiles for many this is not the case. So many children in Pakistan live below the poverty line which means having three square meals a day is a blessing.
While we can’t the change the lives many but at NUR Foundation School we make sure that every Eid the children of the school receive a new set of clothes for Eid. The children come from impoverished backgrounds and while giving them an education will take them forward in the future but seeing there joy makes all the effort worthwhile
This has only been possible with the support of donors and we hope the support will continue. However, with rising costs it is becoming difficult with each passing year and we will like your support so we can continue with our tradition so we can see the bright light in each child’s eyes which has been dimmed by the reality of their lives.
When a member of your family is sick – you want to be with them , take care of them, love them and just be by their side. Sometimes it is hard to do what you want and the harsh reality of life hits you where you can’t afford to take care of your family. When you have to watch your loved ones suffer and not have the financial resources to take of them.
At Fatima Memorial Hospital, more than 300,000 patients are treated each year and 82% of those patients are provided either free or subsidized treatment. This tradition of care is rooted back to 4 decades ago when the hospital opened for women and children. Today the same hospital has grown to provide almost every specialty under one roof enabling us to take care of patient with different illnesses and issues.
Fatima Memorial Hospital has a tradition to provide food at the time of sehri and Iftari (i.e. from sunrise to sunset) to patients and their families who are being treated free of cost at the hospital. The institution tries to ensure that no needy individual goes hungry in this holy month however with rising costs sometimes it gets difficult to cater to everyone and we need your support to continue with our tradition.
Help us take care of our patients and their loved ones.
In this world torn by war, terror, hunger and destruction to see that there are so many people who are out there to help and support us in not only heartening but also gives us hope all is not lost.
We had asked your support in raising funds for the gift of sight and we got so much in return and with this we helped so many. You are the reason for the light in so many lives from young children to women to old men. We treated them all through the trust and support you have shown us and we thank you for it and we will keep continuing it.
