Transforming Lives through Orphan Support Programme – HHRD

Sharafat Ali belongs to Madian  Swat and lives with two brothers  and four sisters. His father died  in his childhood and his elder  brother bore all household  expenses. It was a very  challenging time for his family  because the earnings were not  enough to fulfill basic needs of  his family. When Sharafat was in  Grade-VII, he was enrolled in  Orphan Support Program (OSP)  as a Sponsor Child, after which  he received food/ration  packages and cash grants that  helped him continue his  education and meet his  expense.

“it is a great pleasure for me that  the donors of HHRD have  sponsored me, and thousands of  other children like me to enable  them fulfill their dreams.” 

— Sharafat Ali

He was overjoyed when Helping Hand for Relief and Development (HHRD) team ensured continuation of his education. Thus, in 2011, he was adopted by Orphan Support Program of HHRD.

He was a bright student and worked hard to pass the Matriculation exam in 2013 with A grade. He was able to continue his education in 2015 and passed Intermediate, yet again with flying colours, scoring an A Grade, that landed  him a scholarship in Helping  Hand Institute of Rehabilitation  Sciences (HH-IRS), Mansehra. He completed Doctorate of Physiotherapy (DPT) with 3.64 CGPA.

Sharafat Ali is a bright and  happy young man. Expressing  gratitude to the team of HHRD,  he said, “it is a great pleasure for  me that the donors of Helping  Hand for Relief and Development  have sponsored me, and  thousands of other children like  me to help them fulfill their  dreams. May Allah Almighty give  the best reward for this act of  kindness.”

9,000 children are sponsored  under the Helping Hand for  Relief and Development’s  Orphan Support Program and  many of them are serving  humanity across Pakistan after  completing their education. Twelve children are currently serving as doctors after doing  MBBS. Thirty-five have become engineers, while about seventy  are working as teachers. In addition, many are working in  the Pakistan Army, police and  other government institutions.
