Pakistan is a country that is still striving had to attain a place in the developed countries category on the global map. The country’s progress is severely impeded by hindrances like poverty, illness, illiteracy, and ignorance. The government alone cannot be expected to take care of every citizen in the country; the NGO’s and other nonprofits also have to play their part. Many organizations serve Pakistanis with all their heart. We feel that the least we could do for these foundations is honor them with adorned words. Therefore, folks, in today’s discussion, we are going to look at the top 5 foundations making an impact in Pakistan, even in the year 2020! We need a bit more from these foundations, given the current crisis that humanity is facing!
1- The Citizens Foundation
There are not many reputable foundations, as The Citizens Foundation when it comes to social and charity services in the field of education. Pakistan needs its kids to spend more time in schools than at a shop, enslaved by the evil of child labor. The numbers are staggering, but we will not go in that detail. It will only depress you further. The Citizen’s Foundation was founded in the mid of 90’s decade. The idea was to provide exceptional educational facilities to those children, who belonged to the underprivileged section of the society. The mission has been quite a successful one, we can tell you that much!
2- Edhi Foundation
Whenever the humanitarian work is mentioned in Pakistan, Edhi Foundation will always dominate the discussion. Every service that this foundation provides is free of cost and oozes of nothing but excellence and professionalism. The foundation runs one of the biggest ambulance services, not just in Pakistan, but 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.
3- Shahid Afridi Foundation
Shahid Afridi has been a darling of Pakistanis ever since he smacked the fastest century in ODI cricket, some 24 years ago. The respect that he gained has only doubled since he founded the Shahid Afridi Foundation. The 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.
4- Aga Khan Foundation
This foundation provides its services, not just in Pakistan, but in certain other underdeveloped countries of the world as well. The philosophy in which this foundation believes is simple to understand. The foundation believes that those who live in the countryside face more problems, as compared to other citizens of the country. Hence, it tries to reach out to rural families, listen to their problems, and find solutions for them. That is just one aspect of its services. The foundation also provides services in the field of healthcare and education.
5- Transparent Hands
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.
We wish we could mention a few more angels, which have saved many lives in the land of four seasons. Unfortunately, the limitations of time and space force us to conclude this discussion here. If you ever catch the giving bug, make sure that you remember these foundations while donating for a good cause.
