HOPE has been a forerunner in providing health, educational and disaster assistance and relief to the needy and distressed across Pakistan since its creation in 1997. Within the field of health, HOPE’s primary goal is to increase access to preventive and curative healthcare for the poor by setting up emergency, primary and secondary care facilities in rural areas and urban slums. Currently, HOPE is running two hospitals in Karachi one in Thatta and one in Sujawal. But that is not all, HOPE has been extremely instrumental in providing invaluable tools to the general poor masses specially in rural Sindh, places like Thatta, Sujawal and Badin to earn reasonable means of income on a consistent basis to better their conditions and thus the conditions of the generations to come. Top priority has been the flood affectees of Badin and Sujawal and every effort is being made continuously to rehabilitate them economically.
In this respect small landowners economically handicapped in cultivating their lands were provided high quality sunflower seeds according to the terrain of the acreage available for cultivation ~ along with technical assistance in scientifically preparing their lands, sowing of seeds and an appropriate watering schedule.
Empowering these very poor landowners to begin a cycle of independantly and profitably managing their lands on a consistent basis so that they become capable once again in successfully earning their livelihoods.
After almost four months of hard work a very handsome dividend is anticipated by the recipients of sunflower seeds. By the look of the standing crop it is expected that all six of them will reap bumper crops. All six recipients are looking forward to the actual cutting of their crops in two to three week’s time.All of them are already rejoicing their anticipated success and are very grateful for the assistance they have received.
Chairperson of HOPE, Dr Mubina, a child specialist in Karachi personally managed the whole project and direct instructions were given to the administrative staff of HOPE in Badin .Chairperson of HOPE, Dr Mubina, a child specialist in Karachi, made absolutely sure that the program was run with utmost efficiency so that all recipients benefitted to the very maximum.
