Providing new clothes for Eid to 1350 poor kids

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.

Eid-ul-Fitr comes once a year after the holy month of Ramazan when muslims from all across the world fast for one month from dawn till dusk. 

Each Eid, including this one NUR Foundation Schools arranged for a new set of clothes for these children, the smiles and those gleeful eyes makes 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.

She deserves them as much as you do
She deserves them as much as you do

Each year the biggest festival to be celebrated in Pakistan is Eid which comes after a month of fasting.  Each year it is the tradition at the NUR Foundation School to provide new clothes for Eid to all the students studying in the various branches across Lahore and in 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.

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.

Let’s see these children smile!


Thank you! 

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.

Thank you! 

Eid comes two twice a year; one is Eid ul Fitr that comes after Ramadan and second one is Eid ul Adha which comes in the Islamic month Zil Haj. There are many Muslims who simply can’t afford one square meal a day let alone celebratethese occasions.

The all-time ritual of new clothes, food and gifts is not the case.

Each year the student of NUR Foundation Schools which are run by Fatima Memorial Hospital are provided with new clothes to every student of its schools from underprivileged areas every year. These children come from poor families and seeing them smile every Eid makes our heart melt.

However with rising prices to keep providing each child a new set of clothes is becoming difficult but with your support we can keep seeing the smiles on these children.
