Our CEO Dr. Othman Moqbel and Head of International Programs Hameed Al-Asaly arrived in Pakistan on Wednesday 25th April to visit some of our key projects. In particular they have been visiting our orphans projects, our development work in flood affected areas and income generating projects. They’ve met several beneficiaries who love the work we do and the support we have provided them. These stories are a testament to the kind of work we have been doing in Pakistan over the last six years.
Their first activity was to attend a graduation ceremony for underprivileged children including HAI orphans. The student’s achievements were very impressive with the school achieving some of the highest marks nationally. On Saturday they attended a ceremony where Human Appeal handed over 140 sheltered houses to those affected by the floods in Rahim Yar Khan.
Dr. Othman Moqbel explained to those gathered that despite all relief and development efforts carried out by the government and NGO’s there is still a need for aid and support for the flood victims.
Overall Dr. Othman and Br Hameed have been impressed with the implementation of work and our beneficiaries drive to improve their lives after such devastation has affected their lives. It’s this drive and determination that drives us on to keep doing the good work that we are doing. Alhamdulillah, we have a clear vision about what needs to be done and the direction we are heading. Our major focus is sustainable livelihoods. We want to do more than short term aid, we want to help those people who have been affected by disaster, conflict or poverty so they can rebuild their lives and contribute back to society.
