Wheelchairs for General Hospital, Lahore Pakistan

We received an urgent request from our partners in Pakistan, Al Khidmat Foundation, for $1600 needed to provide 20 wheelchairs for patients of General Hospital in Lahore Pakistan. The response from our kind and generous donors was prompt, and we were able to raise the funds quickly.

Imagine the blessings received for every sick person who gets to use the wheelchair to move from one ward to another and these blessings continue throughout the day and for years insha Allah. What beautiful way to visit a sick and help one in need. What a beautiful Sadaqah!

These wheelchairs were custom made for hospital use and presented to General Hospital on January 8th, 2014 in a cermony attended by representatives of Al Khidmat Foundation and members of General Hospital's governing body. On this occasion Dr. Amjad Shahzad, the Medical Superintendent General Hospital Lahore, recorded a video thanking Lahaute Foundation and Al Khidmat Foundation. The audio is in Urdu, with English subtitles.

Wheelchair Program

$60 gets a mobility challenged person a good quality wheelchair. We have shared pictures of a few brothers who allowed our team to take pictures so that others would be encouraged to help more deserving. We have a list of people requesting a wheelchair. They are asking because they have not been able to afford one in their lives. It improves their quality of life and makes them more productive.

Following up to see what difference such a small assistance made we have found optimism and hope that his or her life can change for better is foremost. Many of the physically disabled have been so since childhood and hoped for no change. Secondly, the dignity and self respect that comes with being able to sit on a chair and be able to do the everyday things in life without having to ask someone for it. It is indeed a very beautiful gift that becomes part of the beneficiary's life and assists in bringing numerous other blessings in the person's life.

Give a gift this valuable, the blessings you receive will be immeasurable by the generosity of the Creator who watches over all and tests one who has with what he has and one who doesn't have for what he doesn't have.

Allah's Apostle Mohammad peace be upon him said: The one who visits the sick is in fact like one who is in the fruit garden of Paradise so long as he does not return.
[Sahih Muslim, Hadith 6227 Narrated by Thawban]

Imagine if the deed of visiting a sick has such beauty what abundance lay in an act that becomes a catalyst for healing and sight for another?

We work through our local partner LRBT a non profit organization with a mission that 'no man, woman or child should go blind because he or she cannot afford treatment'.
