This little girl also has dreams
Across the Muslim world, Eid ul Fitr is celebrated with fervor and zeal as it marks the end of the blessed month of Ramazan. The holy month of fasting is a time of spiritual reflection for all Muslims, to be thankful for the bounties they are blessed with and realize the needs of the less fortunate.
Eid ul Fitr is a time of joy celebrated with family where gifts are exchanged, good food laid out on the table and most importantly brand new clothes. But, alas not everyone is able to celebrate this joyous day and we at Fatima Memorial Hospital try to do our bit every year by providing new clothes to children studying at the schools of the institution’s outreach program every Eid.
We are proud to say the number of children our schools have grown to 1850 who are studying in the peri-urban areas of Lahore i.e. Malik Pur, Lakhudair, Nain Sukh & Talwara. The outreach program further expanded its reach and setup a school flood hit area of Habit Mastui in Dist. D.G.Khan in South Punjab.
These children come from impoverished backgrounds where the concepts of new clothes simply does not exist and they are forced to wear hand me downs or buy second hand clothing.
Every year during Eid we try to provide new clothes to the students as we believe every child born deserves to have an educations, sustenance and clothing. We do not have capacity or the financial resources to provide for everyone but we hope to increase the number with your help this Eid.
Sometimes we do not realize our blessing but meeting these determined little souls who studying for their future against all odds makes you thankful for what we have been blessed with. Today we ask for your help so we can spread smiles during this blessed festival with new clothes.
