“Let’s do what we can!”

 

This is what we said when our team saw the destruction that had ravaged the Southern part of Punjab – it took away lives, homes, livestock and everything held dear by so many of our fellow citizens.  That’s all we can do – play our part and become an agent of change

Fatima Memorial Hospital established a school in the flood ravaged area of Dera Ghazi Khan in Habit Mastui, a small village in the district to do their bit by providing an education to the children who had been affected the most by the tragedy. This happened after the devastating floods of 2010 which ravaged the country.

Today we ask for your support to help us expand and sustain the project

Six years have passed since the terrible floods which resulted in the countless lives lost, farmland destroyed, infrastrucutre ruined. Calamities have hit this nation that have been both man-made and natural in the past one decade from floods to earthquake to drought to bombings to children dying of hunger. 

It has been a tough road for Pakistan but sometimes as we move on from calamity to the next we need to step back and look at the ones who suffered. To look and see that are they on the road to becoming active part of society.

I came first in my final examinations!”

This is Sawera and she is in class 5th in the Habit Mastui branch of NUR Foundation School and today holding that trophy proves she can move forward with her dreams whatever her circumstances.

The floods of 2010 in Pakistan were one of the worst ever seen in county's history – and today after five there is life being rebuilt but it is a slow laborious process.  However, certain things must continue i.e. the provision of basic nutrition, health and education.

"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.
