Chairperson's Message

HOPE was started by a group of volunteers who wanted to bring a change in the lives of the poor and impoverished by bringing health and education to their doorsteps.HOPE was established in 1997 and has grown from a band of street volunteers to a huge national network of schools and hospitals. Health and education are priority areas of HOPE, whereby HOPE is running Maternal and Child Health Centres as well as two hospitals.The HOPE network extends from Karachi in the south to Thatta, Dadu and the mountains of Kashmir . Research activities of HOPE extends from collaborations with the Centre for Disease Control (CDC), WHO, UNICEF among others on topics such as hand washing, Safe water, Safe injections, Poliomyelitis, tuberculosis etc. The education component forms the foundation of of HOPEs activities as without education of children and youth there will be no awareness and enlightment. The future vision of HOPE is to expand its activities in other remote areas of Pakistan. With Gods help HOPE will go where others have not dared. We are but just a drop in the ocean, but we will strive to change the lives of the people we touch. Read More
