Cleft Lip Surgery
Across the world, more than one million children suffer from untreated clefts. In comparison to their peers, those who suffer from cleft lips and palates are less likely to go to school, get married or keep a job.
Al Mustafa Welfare Society, our sister organisation, carried out more than 7,500 surgeries across 2015 and 2016. This is the highest recorded number of cleft operations performed throughout the world and is a testament to the hard work and dedication our team have put in since 2008 when we first began organising cleft operations.
Schools and Orphanages (Qur’an Institute)
Every child deserves an education. Since 1983, we have continuously strived to create a new range of opportunities to enable children across the world to go to school.
In Kashmir and Pakistan, we have a network of seven schools which allow children from low-income families to access an education.
Our goal is to help vulnerable women and children create a brighter future and keep out of poverty. With your generous support, sponsorship can provide healthcare, nutritious food, warm clothing, and access to an education for orphans in need across the world.
In Pakistan, we have 13 orphanages which are home to 7,000 children. We also provide Eid gifts to all the children living and studying an Islamic education in our orphanages and institutes.
Water and Sanitation
The number of deaths caused by diarrheal diseases can be reduced by an average of 65% when water, hygiene and sanitation issues are addressed.
We are constantly working to develop self-sustaining and long-lasting programs relating to water and sanitation, which can then be used in schools, orphanages, medical centres and across whole communities.
Our team also supply straw filters to villages which will immediately provide clean water for the community, something which can additionally be used during disaster and emergency relief efforts.
The difference between clean and dirty water has the potential to save a life.
