Muwakhat Foundation has been helping 23 families since the pandemic hit in March 2020 in Pakistan. These families were being supported financially for the last 18 months. Now Muwakhat Foundation aims to help these families get back on their feet and achieve a sustainable lifestyle. 

In the last 2 months, Muwakhat Foundation provided free health camps to the selected families. Muwakhat Foundation also helped send 3 children back to school after dropping out due to the financial crisis because of the pandemic. 

Now, winter is coming so Muwakhat Foundation aims to provide warm clothes, eggs and protein meals to 67 children. These are some of the things that these families can not afford during the harsh, cold season. 10 families will also be provided with waterproof tents to help them survive the season. 

Help us achieve this vision for these 10 families. You can help by donating a minimum of $10 to provide for a child or even donate for a waterproof tent to save a whole family. 

Now, we aim to help 10,000 COVID-19 affected families. Together we can heal these families from the global crisis.

Muwakhat Foundation saved Kainat's year of education by paying her due fees.

 

Kainat studies in a government college in Lahore, Pakistan. She was unable to pay her fees due to which the college was not allowing her to sit for her exams. She could not pay her recent fees' because her father got tested positive for COVID-19 and was unable to go to work but even before that he had lost his job due to the pandemic and the strict lockdown. He was an auto-rickshaw driver. He could not find any rides due to the lockdown, so he had to temporarily quit his job. Later on, he sold his autorickshaw. Now they have no means of earning. Also, there were no other arrangements to help Kainat. Kainat has only her father. If she had not paid her fees, then she would have lost a year of college and had to repeat again. After Muwakhat Foundation paid her fees, she was given permission to sit for the exams. Her father is still struggling to find work so Muwakhat Foundation plans to further fund Kainat's education if need be. 

 

Muwakhat Foundation aims to support 10,000 families. Many children are dropouts or are just waiting to go to school for once. Parents are unable to fund their children's study. Muwakhat Foundation aims to support these children and help them study further. Muwakhat Foundation is a strong supporter of education and wants to help these children continue their education without the fear of dropping out. 

 

Help us to continue their studies!
