If you have caught the giving bug recently, you might be thinking of donating to a particular charity or trust. It is not something that needs to be instructed, but you must assert the credibility of the organization you are giving your charity money to. How do you do that? Well, you could ask your family and friends, make some investigations on the internet, and follow the lead. You can also check the catalogs and see if the NGO, charity, or trust in question has won any particular awards. This will remove any doubts about the credibility of the organization you might have in your mind. There are many Award-Winning NGOs in Pakistan which have won many prestigious awards. In this discussion, we discuss five such NGOs in Pakistan.
Award won: Innovative Practice of 2018, United Nations, Vienna.
The Network of Organization’s Working for People with Disabilities is one of the local NGOs in Pakistan. As the name suggests, it is one of the biggest NGOs in Pakistan, which is concerned with the welfare of disabled individuals in the country. The NOWPDP believes that the disabled individuals in a society should not be kept apart from the able ones’; rather they should be made a part of the society. The organization achieves this particular goal through its many initiatives that focus on the empowerment of special individuals.
Award won: Isa Award, Bahrain, 2013
It is one of the biggest Award-Winning NGOs in Pakistan, a foundation, which provides all services free of cost. The foundation runs one of the biggest ambulance services, not just in Pakistan, but also in the entire world. It is just one call away from reaching anyone who needs emergency healthcare services. Not only that, but the foundation is also focused on helping the abandoned kids, as well as those who were orphaned at a very young age. Technical skill centers run by the foundation are helping widows and jobless youth in a most admirable manner.
Shahid Afridi Foundation
Award won: Best upcoming charity of the year, 2016 at Global Good Governance, Istanbul
The Shahid Afridi Foundation chants Hope not out, which is desperately needed, in current desperate times. The foundation runs a hospital, which provides free treatment to kids, women, and men of all ages. Diagnostic and dental facilities are available as well. Other projects run by this foundation involve the provision of food to the needy, improving hygiene standards in the rural areas of the country, and education for all.
Shaukat Khanum Cancer Hospital
Award won: Effie Awards Pakistan, Health Services Category 2019.
This institute was the brainchild of the current Pakistani Prime Minister, Mr. Imran Khan. The foundation holds a special place in the heart of many Pakistanis, who get their cancer treated from the prestigious hospital. The charges are almost minimal to none, depending upon the type of cancer one is being treated for. Donors from all across the world make their donations in the name of this trust, which shows its honesty is unimpeachable. The foundation offers certain other healthcare services as well, apart from the cancer treatment.
Transparent Hands is the largest technological platform for crowdfunding in the healthcare sector of Pakistan. It offers a complete range of free healthcare services including medical and surgical treatments, medical camps, and telehealth facilities to the underprivileged community of Pakistan.
The platform provides visibility to underprivileged patients and builds a personal and trusted bond between patients and donors while ensuring complete transparency. It also sets up free medical camps in the rural areas of Pakistan in which, free medical consultation, free medicines, and free diagnostic tests are provided to the deserving patients.
Donors from all over the world can use the Transparent Hands crowdfunding web portal and donate through 100% secure payment modes. They could select any patient, fund the treatment, and receive regular feedback and updates until the patient has recovered completely.
Well, it is wrap up time. We wish we could go on, but the limitations of time and space force s to conclude this discussion here. We hope that when you donate next time, you will remember some of these Award-Winning NGOs in Pakistan, which we discussed in today’s discussion.
