TREE PLANTATION ACTIVITY BY HOPE

 Considering the manifold benefits of trees, including that they release oxygen into the air, absorb unpleasant odors as well as harmful gases such as carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide and sulfur dioxide from the air and purify it, protect us from dangerous ultra-violet rays, provide us with food and the pivotal role played by trees in preventing soil erosion, maintaining ecological balance and most especially in lessening the effects of global warming

Tree Plantation is poised to effect a positive change in the world's forests growing fast growing trees on a global scale.

Plantation is not an option, but a necessity to save the country for future generations and topromote environmental welfare and for that reason HOPE- an NGO in Pakistan has initiated the tree plantation activity.

Planting a tree is a lifelong investment. How well this investment grows depends on the type of tree selected and the planting location, the care provided during planting, and the follow-up care after planting. Getting your new tree off to a healthy start will help the tree mature to its full size and ensures it will provide environmental, economic, and social benefits throughout its lifetime.

The Tree Plantation drive being conducted by HOPE, is sponsored by The Bokhari Foundation, who collaborated with HOPE - a Health NGO in Pakistan, for the plantation of trees in various cities like Karachi, Gadap, Thatta, Sujawal, Ghaggar etc. 






On the sites selected approximately 180 plants have been decided upon for plantation. Trees such as Gulmohar, Neem,Eucalyptus,Ashoka, Sukh Chain, Peepal etc. These trees will have a tremendous impact on climate change

Some of the very obvious benefits that tree plantation has is: Trees provide oxygen, they cleanse the air, prevent water pollution, conserve energy, most importantly they provide for wood which in turn increases the timber market production and boosts the business.

Under the Leadership of Dr. Mubina Agboatwalla- a child specialist in Karachi, HOPE is dedicated to improving the condition in Pakistan, by all necessary means which also includes tree plantation.

HOPE will move on to searching for more sites where trees can be planted, while those which had already been planted will be well looked after. HOPE wishes to combat climate change through such activities.

HOPE’S QURBANI ACTIVITY 2020

The aim of sacrifice, like all other fundamentals of Islam, is to imbibe piety and self righteousness. It also promotes the spirit of sacrifice for a right cause. HOPE- an NGO in Pakistan is striving hard to reach out to the poor and less fortunate this Eid.

There is nothing dearer to Allah during the days of Eid al-Adha than the sacrificing of animals. Sacrifice, as practiced by the Holy Prophet Muhammad (Pbuh) is an essential religious ritual of the Muslims – replicating and commemorating the sacrifice performed by Prophet Ibraham in its truest spirit and essence. God put Prophet Ibrahim to a most difficult trial, the details of which are described in the Quran.

Qurbani meat is divided into three parts; one for the family, the other for the neighbor and the third portion for the poor. And so Muslims fulfill their obligation and distribute some meat of goats, cows, sheep and camels to the underprivileged.

HOPE- a Health NGO in Pakistan, was actively involved in the distribution of sacrificed animals among the deserving families this Eid-ul-Azha. HOPE carried out its annual Qurbani on all three days of Eid and sacrificed a total of 15 Cows, whilst 22 Goats were sacrificed and meat was distributed among the poor benefitting approximately 1350 plus families and 10,800 individuals.



HOPE under the supervision of Dr. Mubina Agboatwalla- a child specialist in Karachi, distributed meat in every nook and corner, so that no one is left hungry and unhappy this Eid. Areas included: Rehri Goth, Bhens Colony, Ghaggar, Link Road, Gadap, Mujahid Colony, Bhittaiabad, Sachal, Bilal Colony, Zia Colony, Kachra Kundi , Gurumandir, Thatta , Sajawal, Badin,  Muzaffarabad and Muzaffargarh.

HOPE USA chapter, HOPE UK and many individual donors contributed for the share in cows and for goats.
