children get free medicine from health camp

Muwakhat Foundation arranged free health camp for families affected by COVID-19 on September 12 2021. In lockdown, poor families lost their source of income and in current worse health conditions they are not able to afford expenses of health treatment for their children and women.

This was one of the reasons that Muwakhat provided free health camp with experience doctors and medicines for children and women. This was the first event of free health camp of the goal to help 10,000 families affected by covid in next 12 months. In camp, doctor did covid test, general health check up and viral diseases due to weather changing especially the mothers and children. Muwakhat believes when the mother is safe, the whole family is safe.

Now Muwakhat Foundation wants to support families affected by COVID-19 and get them back on their feet We need your help in fulfilling these goals. Muwakhat Foundation has 23 registered families since the last year but now with your help we aim to help 10,000 families.

TITLE OR SUBJECT OF REPORT
Breaking myths around children from slum areas
PROJECT REPORT
We always hear a lot of myths around children from slum areas. Mainly in Pakistan, we get to hear how kids from slum areas are ill-mannered and cannot be a part of our normal and educated society. Due to all these myths, a lot of people do not interact with these children and the myths are never challenged. However, recently Muwakhat Foundation held a grand Iftaar for the families in the slum areas affected by the pandemic. The grand Iftaar was held for about 150 people. Due to the third wave of the pandemic, Muwakhat Foundation was unfortunately short on volunteers to help arrange the grand Iftaar for about 150 people. The grand Iftaar was held at the slum area. The families were open to offer help to the volunteers. The children helped the only 2 available female volunteers arrange the area. There were about 15 children who helped. Their ages ranged from anywhere to 5 years old to 12. The children helped set up the sitting area. They helped washed the dishes. They even dried the dishes. Few children were smart enough to even arrange the dining area properly and place sets of plates and glasses. They knew basic numbers in English and set 15 sets of crockery per 5 rows. They counted the sets themselves and placed all the crockery themselves. They then followed the instructions of the female volunteers and placed dates, mangoes, bananas, and samosas on each set. After the grand Iftaar was over, the children even helped wrap up everything. They helped pack up everything and arrange it in an orderly manner. With this experience, it became obvious that these children should not be underestimated and with just a little help, they can easily be a part of our normal society.

Now Muwakhat Foundation is focusing on Food and Education for these children and on a special Education program for girls. We would like your support in these programs to help these children reach their potential.

Muwakhat handover blanket and matress to Nabila
Muwakhat handover blanket and matress to Nabila

 

Ms. Nabila has no one with her. She has been living in different places. Currently she is living in a girls hostel and there she needed bedding stuff to prevent herself through this cold. During verification she told us about her circumstances and we worked over this issue.

Alhumdullilah by the Grace of ALLAH, our Operational Head and Ambassador visited a shop in Faisal Town Lahore, Pakistan and bought up new bedding stuff with A+ quality because Muwakhat believes in QUALITY rather than QUANTITY. Bedding stuff includes the following things, Double aply Blanket, Pure cotton mattress, Pillow and Bedsheet set.

As per we believe in “WE ARE ONE’’, so we have chosen the thing we could choose for ownselves. It costed around 10k. Finally we handed over her the stuff and it happened just because of the efforts of our respected donors, our team and above all ALLAH.

 

Reviews from Ms. Nabila:- You came as a divine helping hand to me in this crucial time. May God bless Muwakhat and you with more. I wish God will make me from one of you. ThankYouMuwakhat Foundation to be a helping hand in this.

FRESH LUNCH BOX MEALS TO 77 CHILDREN

On Eid-ul-Azha(Islamic Holiday), Muslims sacrifice animals and their ultimate purpose to share meat with poors but in reality, mostly poor families never receive the sacrificed animal meat.

One day before Eid, Muwakhat foundation arranged 150 barbeque lunch boxes and distributed them to 23 families.

When children opened the boxes and saw meat, it brought happiness on their faces and our volunteers photographed them.

 

DISTRIBUTION OF FLOUR BAG

Muwakhat Foundation distributed flour bags weighing 20 kg to 23 homeless families a day before of Eid (Islamic Holiday) to save them from starvation. Selected homeless families did not have enough food to feed their children due to non-availability of work during covid-19 pandemic.

NEXT ACTION PLAN

  • Muwakhat will do awareness programs for homeless children on importance of hand wash and distribute soap, mask and sanitizer to each child.
  • Identify and register poor families hit during covid-19 pandemic.
  • First four families will receive funds for setting up cart to earn income.
  • Distribute dry ration to 23 families.
