by Fatima Memorial Hospital

"My name is Sohaib. I am studying in 4th class. In NUR foundation School in Habit Mastui the district of Dera Ghazi Khan. I would like to continue my studies with NUR Foundation School."

Pakistan is ranked 2nd in the world with most out-of-school children and Nigeria is on first rank. The statistics are alarming and everyone tries to do their bit to improve the situation.

In 1985 Fatima Memorial Hospital started a NUR Foundation School. Today 18,000 children have completed their primary education with NUR Foundation Schools and currently 1850 are completing their education and all students are provided free tuition, books, uniforms and stationary every year.

Please help us that we can continue to keep educating the children of our nation with your donation.  

Hello my name is Farzana and we lost our livelihoods, our homes, our memories in the flood that wreaked havoc in the our area  I am studying in class two at the Nur Foundation School located at Habit Mastui, district Dera Ghazi Khan. This school opened after the flood and I will finish my primary school after 3 years and I hope Fatima Memorial Hospital will help me to continue my study.

My family could not afford my educational expenses because of our low income. My father is the only source of income for our family he is reaper by profession We are 7 family members with 3 sisters, 2 brothers and my parents..

To continue this we need your support for this cause to make better future of these children.

Tragedies and incidents seem to have become the norm of today on a global level from floods, wars, bomb blasts, earth quakes, and typhoons, senseless killings of school children to airplanes crashing, disappearing or simply shot down:

The year 2014 was a tough one for Pakistan which shook the nation to the core but as all resilient nations we carry on.  

Pakistan had to face one of the worst floods in the history of the nation in 2012, lives were lost and scattered but we are rebuilding day by day.  

Fatima Memorial Hospital played its small role by adopting 400 families in Habit Mastui in the district of Dera Ghazi Khan out of which almost 200 children needed to study. Fatima Memorial Hospital set up a small school for these children.

Today, after three years, the children are continuing with their education and the oldest kids are now in class 5. The classes are working their way up with each year as the children progress into the next session. These children are the future of Pakistan and the success of this country will be in their hands. We are educating them to lead the Nation to the future.

To continue this we need your support for this cause to make better future of these children.

The destruction
The destruction

Disasters are the part of this world that are unplanned and unbeknown to everyone; destroying lives, livelihoods, buildings and whatever that may come in its way. They come in the form of typhoons, hurricanes, earthquakes, tsunamis, volcano eruptions and floods. As a result of the devastations they bring basic infrastructure and the way of life is disrupted to such a degree that sometimes there is no going back.

in 2010, heavy floods struck Pakistan; the water took everything leaving behind a trail of destruction, death and tragedy. Countless died, lost homes and everything they had; the only thing that survived was the memories of what life once was.

Today, after four years life is being rebuilt slowly but steadily, basic necessities are being taken care of such as food, health services and education.

After preliminary damage assessment Fatima Memorial Hospital opened a school in Habit Mastui, District Dera Ghazi Khan in Southern Punjab to educate the children affected by the flood.

This is the generation who is the future, the generation who will take us forward, the generation who will lead the nation tomorrow. .

We need your continuous support for our cause and help us in building their future.

Incidents and disasters are the part of this world and are unplanned and unknown to everyone. In the past few years, we have faced typhoons, hurricanes, earthquakes, floods, blasts and the tragedies of war. These calamities take away lives, homes, livelihood affecting the poorest of them all who do not have the capacity to rebuild.

Similarly, in 2010 one of worst flood in the history of the country hit the population specially in South Punjab. The deluge took away everything and for some there was nothing left except memories. Lives and everything that was held dear the water took away leaving the population with despair.

Life is being rebuilt steadily but slowly and basic necessities such as food health services and education are now being provided in the area,

After that damage assessment Fatima Memorial Hospital opened a school in Habit Mastui, District Dera Ghazi Khan in Southern Punjab to educate the children affected by the flood.

Today after four years, the school continues to provide an education to ensure a future that is brighter removed from the effects of hardships, pain these children have faced at such an early age.

This is the generation who will become productive members of society and take Pakistan forward. .

We need your continued support our vision to educate our children.
