Qurbani 2012 - Support HOPE in reaching out more underprivileged people this Eid.

Muslims all over the world celebrate Eid-ul-Azha in the month of Zil Hajj, commemorating the great sacrifice of Hazrat Ibrahim (pbuh). In this regard, some of the companions asked the Prophet (pbuh) regarding the significance of this sacrifice, the Prophet (pbuh) is reported to have replied: “It is the Sunnah of your father, Abraham (pbuh)”. 

Therefore, HOPE aims to reach out to all those poor and needy who neither can afford to sacrifice an animal nor get to have meat throughout the year like the privileged ones. Eid-ul-Azha is less than a month away and we at HOPE are preparing hard to distribute Qurbani meat and donations to the underprivileged areas specially those which are affected by the flood across Pakistan. HOPE has an extensive network of hospitals and schools in rural Karachi, Thatta, Muzzaffargarh and AJK – areas in which extremely poor families reside, who do not even know where their next meal will come from. 

HOPE strives to have a society where individuals are aware of the basic rights and have equal opportunities to not only access health and educational facilities but to have all the privileges and blessings of life. In this regard, contributions from people all over Pakistan and outside Pakistan make our actions possible and we aim to reach as much poor people as we can.

Payments for Qurbani are:
·         Goat/sheep: 14,000/- (per person)
·         Full cow for seven (7 persons): 52,500/-
·         One person’s share in cow: 7,500/-

A clean environment is essential for human health and well-being. Therefore, HOPE not only strives to provide quality health care and education to the underprivileged but also pays special attention to environmental sanitation and solid waste management. HOPE has been running different campaigns to develop a cleaning habit in the informal settlements of Karachi. Other than that, twelve washrooms were constructed for the flood affectees at super highway, four water tanks for the availability of pure safe drinking water in the camps, PuR sachets were distributed to around 48,000 families. PuR is used to transform the contaminated water into pure water.

HOPE knows the significance of environmental health which is concerned with all aspects of the natural and built environment that may affect human health. In this regard, HOPE in collaboration with the CBM Society of Health Managers organized a health and environment conference with the name "ECO-HEALTH 2012" at IoBM to highlight the implication of environment on public health in Pakistan.

This was yet another step by HOPE to create awareness regarding the impact of environment on our health. Different renowned doctors were invited to put the spotlight on environment related issues that are affecting human health. The event was a success and HOPE is glad to be a part of it.
