In this month of Ramadan, as we open our hearts to prayers and increase charitable work, I wish to present a project worthy of your attention. A close friend of mine in Calgary, Shema Khan Elahi, is volunteering with Canadians for Global Care and raising funds to build a pediatric wing in a hospital in rural Pakistan. The hospital was built by the same organization in Muzzafarabad after the devastating 2005 earthquake, and provides free healthcare to the communities. A pediatric wing is desperately needed as families with sick children flock to the hospital, many walking all day on foot, looking for hope and care. You can donate by emailing [email protected] . You can also get in touch with her if you need more information. Below are the details about the hospital project. You can follow the ‘Donate’ link on the page below to donate from Pakistan or the UK. For US and Canada email [email protected]. Canadians for Global Care is a registered charitable organization and Shema will be able to give out tax receipts to Canadian donations above $50.
May God increase your sustenance and generosity, ameen.
