Muhammad Abdus Shakoor
President Alshams Foundation Pakistan
While we are all set to face the massive challenges of year 2019 in the field of humanitarian relief and development, it is a matter of satisfaction that we overcame the trials of 2018 undeterred. Alshams Foundation Pakistan preserved its traditions and reached out to the underprivileged communities without any kind of discrimination. Our self-sacrificing team of volunteers acclaimed extraordinary achievements of social service in Pakistan as well as other parts of the world. For the year 2019 also, our passion to continue this journey with great momentum remains the same.
In 2018, Alshams Foundation Pakistan attained remarkable milestones in terms of rightful recognition of orphan children in the society. The Senate of Pakistan marked 15th Ramadan as National Orphans Day and the President of Pakistan hosted a reception for the orphan children at the President House.
In addition to successful functioning of our healthcare facilities, Alshams Foundation Pakistan also opened a much needed state-of-the-art hospital in Mardan. Likewise, our emergency response remained pro-active and prompt during 2018. Provision of clean and healthy drinking water has remained our priority. AKFP has expanded its network for rehabilitation and education of street children at specialized Child Protection Centers. Alshams Mawakhat program has transformed many more dreams into reality by providing necessary financial support and our Community Services program also illustrated outstanding efforts to enable the destitute segments of society and the minorities to live a better life.
The support of our kind-hearted donors, well-wishers, volunteers and overseas partners was also matchless. They expressed paramount trust and confidence in the abilities of our team and entrusted us with the resources to fulfill the dream of service to humanity with integrity. We look forward to a similar support and encouragement during 2019 as well, for realization of more humanitarian relief initiatives.
May Allah Almighty help us all to continue this journey rigorously. Ameen!
