Sometimes the reality of life breaks your heart; this was the case when this 24 year old young boy who couldn't walk without crutches due to ‘Ankylosing Spondylitis‘. His treatment was expensive and he couldn’t afford it. However, the Arthritis Care Foundation sponsored his both hip replacement surgeries worth Rs.290, 000. Today is able to walk again and live a normal life.
The disease can strike at any time and without proper care can lead to severe disabilities affecting patients for a lifetime. However, today through early diagnosis and extensive treatment rheumatologists can significantly help prevent disability and death in patients suffering from rheumatic diseases.
Arthritis Care Foundation (ACF) is working in collaboration with Fatima Memorial Hospital Lahore and serving many patients who cannot afford the treatment expenses.
If ACF had not provided this treatment, he would have not been able to walk; this has only been possible through the support of generous donors. Fatima Memorial Hospital hopes to continue its noble mission, please donate generously.
Little children bring joy to so many lives, their smiles, their cherubic faces, and their innocence which makes this world a beautiful place.
The reality of so many children in Pakistan is so bleak and sometimes a better future seems like a distant dream.
Fatima Memorial Hospital runs an outreach programs which consists of NUR Foundation School and students are provided free education since 1985 and till date 18,000 children have graduated. Currently, there are 1850 children studying in the school which are situated in the outreach areas of Lahore and Dera Ghazi Khan.
Given the financial background of the children a new set of clothes each year is a blessing. While NUR Foundation School does provide uniforms and books each year; every Eid which is celebrated with zeal and fervor across the Muslim world and wearing new clothes is an integral part of the festive season.
These children who deserve so much but are faced with so many trial and tribulations are gifted with new outfits for Eid each year on behalf of the schools. The joy it brings to these children is makes it all worthwhile.
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.
“We had Chicken Qorma today with Nan and cold drinks for lunch today. I had a blast eating with all my class fellows. I study in the Gajjumatta Branch of NUR Foundation Schools and every week we enjoy a delicious lunch. It’s the best day of the week!!”
The students at NUR Foundation Schools come from impoverished backgrounds and are provided free education with free books and uniforms. The children come from background where even one square meal a day is not possible. So every week a school lunch is organized for all the children studying the school in the outskirts of Lahore and Dera Ghazi Khan
NUR Foundation Schools are striving to provide its 1850 students healthy meals and will like to make provide them on a daily basis but due to financial constraints it is very difficult to provide meal on daily basis. To reach this goal we need your generous support so that we all can continue to see their happy faces
