DISTRIBUTION OF GIFTS TO BABIES-SPONSORED BY HOPE

HOPE- a charity in Pakistan, works for the betterment of the society and extends their services in the field of health and education especially to those down trodden and underprivileged women and children.

The team of HOPE Pakistan is a staunch believer in providing medical assistance to all those little angels who need special attention. HOPE also supports and sponsors all those hospitals that are in the industry of providing health care facilities. One such example is of Sindh Government Hospital.

A baby show was organized by the Sindh Government Hospital where, after gathering a few of the baby patients in the hospital, their weight and height was measured and those babies who came up to the required level were given gifts by HOPE. This motivated and encouraged the parents to take care of their children on a regular basis so as to raise healthy and strong infants.

Chairperson Dr. Mubina Agboatwalla- a child specialist in Karachi, distributed gifts to the parents of the patients which brought cheerful smiles on their faces. Such gift schemes are undertaken periodically by HOPE – an NGO in Pakistan to enliven their mundane lives. These needy people long for care, love and affection that helps them combat their illness and various other problems.



Gifts bring pleasure to the receiver and especially parents from underserved areas were over joyed to receive the toys for their infants at Sindh Government hospital, because such babies are usually deprived of toys and clothes as the low income of the bread-winner of the family barely suffices basic needs.

Both mothers and children suffer from innumerable diseases and infections, due to lack of proper health services. HOPE having opened numerous hospitals reaffirms, that humanity still exists and that the NGO strives to bring happiness on those innocent deprived faces.
