In a developing nation like Pakistan, with no social security system in place, children and young people end up on the street due to dire poverty and fragmented families. According to Government estimates, there are more than 1.5 Million children, both boy and girls, living on the streets of Pakistan. In the large cities, where crimes are rampant and rule of law is far from being reinforced, the number of children working on the street is far higher than the official estimates.
We travel all across Pakistan and look for genuine cases that are in need of assistance. We take great care in vetting our cases. Unfortunately, the cases are far too many and we count on your support to help our cause.
Along with financial, clothing and food items, we also provide care to those who need medical assistance by providing for them medicine and health care. We connect with local doctors and pharmacies who are aligned with our values and they offer to provide these services at subsidized costs.
We connect with the local elders for cases that involve building infrastructure or involve building a well for the local village or town. With the assistance of the local networks, we are able to better serve those who need the most help.
As the old saying goes, “Give the man a fish, you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, you feed for a lifetime.” With that in mind, we also focus strongly on building and supporting educational institutions where children of all ages can attend and study, without the need to worry about how they will afford the schooling.
We also connect and consult with other charities that have similar aims and goals as ours. We find strength in unifying our resources and tackling the issues of our times.r to provide these services at subsidized costs.
We recognize that along with providing financial support, there is also need to provide emotional support. There is nothing more stressful for a family than not knowing where their next meal will come from. We take those emotional and psychological needs into consideration and provide support accordingly.
“Those who spend their wealth in the way of Allah and then do not follow up what they have spent with reminders [of it] or [other] injury will have their reward with their Lord, and there will be no fear concerning them, nor will they grieve.” – Quran 2:262
