Exciting Project expansion New stage in Faisalabad

Dear Friends and Supporters,

Thank you to everyone for your ongoing support towards our ‘Supporting Children with Disabilities in Pakistan project.’ With your continuous generosity, we have raised £7,638, which has directly enabled us to train 11 expert therapists, who have gone on to train 14 community healthcare workers. Thanks to your donations, they are now better equipped to provide real support to children with disabilities and their families in their own homes, and have so far reached 1,400 people: 700 children with disabilities and 700 of their main carers. At the end of March 2020, 3 of the expert therapists will be delivering this life-changing training to 36 more community health workers at a local healthcare NGO in the Karachi area. The new trainees will be equipped with vital skills in identifying children with disabilities, making referrals to the right health authorities, and supporting families to provide their children with care within their own homes. This could not have been done without your donations.

Now our Karachi-based expert therapists and community health workers are fully trained and using the programme in their work, we are now fundraising for the next exciting stage in the project. We will be spreading the training further afield to Faisalabad, in the Punjab area in Eastern Pakistan. Our Karachi trainers will be travelling to Faisalabad to deliver our programme to 15 new expert therapists, from 5 different local organisations, who will go on to train 35 community healthworkers. This life-saving training will reach 500 children with disabilities and more than 500 of their main carers. We hope that you will continue to support the development of this project as we expand to a new area of Pakistan.

If you would like to give towards this new stage of the project, there is a great way to do so coming up soon. On the 23rd March 2020-Friday 27th March 2020, MAITS is taking part in GlobalGiving’s exciting Little by Little Matching Campaign: during this week alone, for everyone who makes one donation to a MAITS project of up to $50, GlobalGiving will match your generosity at 50%! This means if you donate $50 to our our ‘Supporting Children with Disabilities in Pakistan project’, GlobalGiving will contribute an extra $25, so a total of $75 will go towards expanding this life-saving programme to Eastern Pakistan.We hope that you will continue to support this project during this exciting week.

If you would like to keep up to date with the project’s progress, and all MAITS’ other work, you can find us on Twitter at @MAITS_Charity and on Facebook at MAITS.Charity

With thanks once again,

Esther Hamilton CEO
