Philanthropy is woven into the social fabric of Pakistan. Where the country faces many hurdles in its development and economic prosperity, its people are dedicated to supporting and uplifting one another through philanthropic endeavors. Initiatives that tackle healthcare problems, educational needs, humanitarian aid, and much more are common in the country.
