After travelling with TeamMH as part of the volunteer in Pakistan trip, Shamila and Raabia felt inspired to go the extra mile and help orphans and needy children by organising a charity dinner.
They were particularly moved by the conditions of the slums that some of the students from the Muslim Hands schools reside in and felt compelled to take action.
Shamila Iqbal said:
'One pen, one child, one teacher can change the world. - I believe that every child in the world deserves to pick up a pen and put it to paper to seek an education. Education can be a doorway which can lead many out of poverty. It empowers people to build a better future for themselves and their families. The education of one child can change the future of many generations'.
There are an estimated 200 million children worldwide that have experienced this loss. Many of these children will come from already disadvantaged backgrounds.
So losing a parent can mean that access to education, the protection of shelter, the sustenance of nutritious meals and the chance for a secure future all become an impossible dream.
With your support, Muslim Hands will provide orphans and needy families facing appalling conditions in Pakistan's slums with the tools to build a brighter future including:
o School fees, textbooks, stationary & uniforms
o Daily nutritious meals
o Free medical check-ups
o Free transport
o The best quality teaching
Food parcels for the families of children living in the slums
Established in 1993, Muslim Hands is an aid agency and NGO helping those affected by poverty, conflict and natural disaster in over 20 countries worldwide.
