Like the many schools of HOPE, an education related NGO in Pakistan, where Ramadan activities of distributing Iftar boxes, gifts and Eid clothing took place during Ramadan – the Muzaffargarh school was not neglected and a simillar activity was held there too for the benefit of all the students of this school.
The occasion, as in the other schools of HOPE, an education and Health related NGO in Pakistan, was a very happy one. All the children attended this activity and were made to assemble according to their classes. Their sense of anticipation of receiving Iftar and Eid gifts was almost tangible and they were impatient to receive them.
The Iftar was a very enjoyable one consisting of the delicacies suited for the occasion: samosas, pakoras, kababs etc. of different varieties. It was fun time for all and the chatter was non-stop – the jokes were abundant and a full belly made things even more joyful.
Now the time had arrived for the real thing, something they had been anxiously waiting all evening – the Eid gifts & clothing. But it was not a scramble – it was a very disciplined affair. The Eid clothing was organized along the age group of each class, so there was no problem with sizing and the distribution went very well. The principal and the administrator personally participated in the distribution.
As always particular attention was given by Dr Mubina Agboatwalla, child specialist in Karachi, in the selection and preparation of the iftar items and also the Eid clothing and gifts and everything was closely monitored by Dr Mubina Agboatwalla, child specialist in Karachi to ensure that nothing short of very good quality items were given to the children..
