Ramadan is just around the corner and the preparation for Eid has already begun. Eid is the Muslim community’s most cherished day and it is celebrated with great zeal and enthusiasm by all Muslims around the world. Various clothing brands have already launched their Eid collections and it is a common sight to see people shopping their hearts out at the exhibitions. It is for those people to pause right there and think for a moment about the children who walk barefoot on the scorching roads during summers while fasting and are often laden in rags and plastic. The sight shakes us to the core.

Approximately thirty nine percent of the population of Pakistan lives below the poverty line (Pakistan Economic Survey 2016-2017) which means that the mentioned percentage is unable to afford the basic necessities of life. NUR Foundation while maintaining its aim of being socially responsible not only provides education to the underprivileged but also provides clothes to the needy. Provision of apparel to the needy shall help provide relief to the vicious circle of poverty. However, due to a rising number of poor in the society, NUR Foundation needs more donors. Hence, we request our esteemed donors to be a shoe on the feet which would otherwise burn while walking on the withering roads of summer.

While you lie today in the comfort of your silk laden beds, try to imagine the pain of those who sleep in the streets with mere rags on their bodies. While your child goes to the school today with prim and proper uniforms in pursuit of a bright future try and look at those kids who cannot afford uniforms at all and despite that, they go to the schools and try to learn while their feet and hands turn numb because of the extreme cold. Envisioning the fate of the youth of the country gives us goose bumps. Hence, it is high time that everyone steps out to donate clothes and shoes to the underprivileged.

We look forward to your generous donations.


Thank you so much!

Be it the scorching roads during summers or the ice laden walkways in winters, a large number of poor kids are seen walking barefoot. Even if they are not barefoot, the most that they are able to afford is stitching shoes out of plastic found in the garbage. When we look at the youth of the country laden in rags and plastic, it shakes us to the core.

Approximately thirty nine percent of the population of Pakistan lives below the poverty line (Pakistan Economic Survey 2016-2017) which means that the mentioned percentage is unable to afford the basic necessities of life.

Provision of apparel to the needy shall help provide relief to the vicious circle of poverty.

Recently, NUR Foundation collaborated with Hush Puppies and donated Rs. 2.5 million worth of clothing to the deprived members of the society. In the future, we need more donors to cater to the rising number of poor in the society, hence, we request our esteemed donors to be the coat on someone’s body on a wintry night or a shoe on the feet which would otherwise burn while walking on the withering roads of summer.

While you lie today in the comfort of your quilts or blankets, try to imagine the pain of those who sleep in the streets with mere rags on their bodies. While your child goes to the school today with prim and proper uniforms in pursuit of a bright future try and look at those kids who cannot afford uniforms at all and despite that, they go to the schools and try to learn while their feet and hands turn numb because of the extreme cold. Envisioning the fate of the youth of the country gives us goose bumps. Hence, it is high time that everyone steps out to donate clothes and shoes to the underprivileged.

One of the major differences between humans and animals is that humans have the sense of grooming. If our youth lacks the basic skill of grooming, the benefits of educating them shall remain minimal. Hence, we need to take steps to ensure that our youth is provided with sufficient clothing.

Fatima Memorial collaborated with Firhaj Footwear to provide shoes to the more than 2000 needy individuals. We need more generous donations like these in order to cater to the rising need for apparel for the needy. Hence, we request you to join hands with us in our cause.


Thank you so much!

NUR Foundation with Fatima Memorial Hospital took the initiative of not only educating these children, but also providing them with clothes. The numbers are increasing day by day but we still make it a point to distribute as many as we can among the needy children as well as adults. Along with providing education to them, it is very important to nurture and groom them.

Out of 40 million Pakistani children, 3.8 million work to support their families. Additionally, almost 11 million of those children work in factories under hazardous conditions. Child labor is still a large cause of poverty in Pakistan because while the country has passed many laws against child labor, those laws have often remained ignored. As a result of which, we took the initiative of educating and providing clothes as well as basic necessities to these children.

During the holy month of Ramadan, your support brought happiness among these children when we distributed clothes and shoes among them. Your immense contribution means everything these children. These children have no support for which NUR Foundation in collaboration with Fatima Memorial Hospital striving hard to provide them with basic needs.

We are making all our efforts to provide clothes to the poor children of Pakistan. Due to your donations, we were able to provide shoes to almost 2,000 children. Through your donations, we provide uniforms, routine clothes to these poor children since the poor in Pakistan cannot afford food.

Fatima Memorial Hospital looks forward to your support in letting us provide these children with clothes. These children are deprived of numerous things and the least we can do is provide them with clothes.

We have to continue this effort and support the poor as much as we can and in order to achieve our goals, we need your support.

Thank you so much!

Poverty is one of the least discussed issues in Pakistan. While many debates center around different economic issues, poverty is mostly left out. It is quite odd that local discourse on such a serious issue is very elusive in our country.

A more reasonable poverty line can be the international poverty line of $2 per day. As per this poverty line, a whopping 60% of Pakistanis are poor.

According to the Economic Survey, Pakistan’s poverty headcount has registered a prominent decline in the last decade or so at both the regional and national levels.

The MPI findings show more than 60% of Pakistan’s population does not have access to cooking fuel, approximately, 49% do not complete schooling, almost four out of every 10 people (39%) do not have any assets and over 38% of the population lives in a one-room shelter. About one-third population does not have access to health facilities.
