Remarkable story of Alkhidmat Aghosh Home for orphans in Faisalabad

Arshad Malik says newly-inaugurated orphanage has a computer lab, library, sports ground, indoor games, and educational sessions to nurture children’s psychological development

There is a remarkable story of the Alkhidmat Aghosh Home – a twenty-second facility designed to offer residence, nutrition, education, healthcare, and other essential life amenities to an initial batch of 60 children in Faisalabad.

Addressing the inauguration ceremony, Alkhidmat Aghosh Homes National Director Arshad Malik provided insights into the newly-inaugurated Aghosh Home in Faisalabad that has a computer lab, library, sports ground, indoor games, and various lectures and educational sessions to nurture psychological development of the children.

He highlighted the Alkhidmat Foundation’s journey, starting with the establishment of a small home for deadly 2005 earthquake victim in Attock. Since then, the leading charitable organization has expanded its reach, currently providing support to more than 28,000 children across Pakistan through Alkhidmat Aghosh Homes and Alkhidmat Orphan Family Support Program.

Alkhidmat Foundation Central Punjab President Ikram-ul-Haq Subhani; Senior Manager of Media Relations Shoaib Hashmi; Dr Riaz Hussain from the World Care Foundation; and Alkhidmat Faisalabad President Rai Mohammad Akram Khan also addressed the inaugural ceremony.

On the occasion, Arshad Malik announced that the Alkhidmat Foundation – with the cooperation of generous individuals – has acquired 44 kanals land for the next phase where a school and hostel facilities will be constructed for 250 orphaned children.

Dr Riaz Hussain commended Alkhidmat for its reputable service within Pakistan and abroad. He emphasized the importance of education for the progress of these children and expressed a hope that they would excel academically, interpreting the dreams of their late parents.

Ikram-ul-Haq Subhani reiterated their mission to ensure that no orphan remains unsupported. Referring to a UNICEF report, he pointed out plight of over 420,000 orphans in Pakistan, with a significant number lacking proper education, health, and nutrition facilities. He appreciated Alkhidmat for its efforts in sponsoring over 28,000 orphans and providing support to widowed mothers.

After a tour of the Aghosh facility, the guests expressed their joy and satisfaction with the provided facilities and pledged to support ongoing efforts for the welfare and protection of these resilient children.
