Mrs. Seema noticed that children were roaming around the streets and that was disturbing for her. And this was only because of the lack of schools in the city. She believed that these children had been deprived of basic rights like education that is indeed necessary for a nation to stand. There being a silent observer Mrs. Seema has an idea to solve anything. It was time to take action.
In 1988, CARE opened its first school on Sheikhupura Road, in the Pakistani province of Punjab. On day one, over 250 children had lined up outside, barely clothed but eager to learn.

8. Pakistan Children’s Heart Foundation
PCHF is trying to build a non-profit children heart hospital in Lahore, Pakistan. They want to provide free heart surgeries of deserving children will be performed. The number of children born with heart disease in Pakistan is high. Adequate numbers of trained doctors, quality facilities, infrastructure and funding are all deficient. As a result, adequate care to people from all socioeconomic backgrounds is lacking and this leads to heartbreaking problems for children and their parents.
The thought of having a dedicated pediatric heart center had been discussed among the professionals related to the field before, but over the years nothing concrete has materialized from these discussions. The age-old adage that “one man can make a difference” holds true for this noble idea as well. Farhan Ahmad, an information technology expert, and businessman after having personally experienced the difficulty in getting access to quality pediatric cardiac care, decided to make this cause his own. After exhaustive meetings, brainstorming and research the idea to develop a dedicated Children’s Heart Hospital and Research Institute was formed.
The goal of the project is a noble one as stated in the mission statement: “To establish a state of the art medical facility that provides the highest quality of care for children with heart disease, irrespective of their financial means. To act as a model institute for the education and training of healthcare professionals, and promote research into the causes and management of congenital heart disease.”
In order to achieve this goal, the first step was to form a company called the Pakistan Children’s Heart Foundation (PCHF) that was to oversee the development of the hospital project. This not for profit organization is registered as a Section 42 Co. under the Company Ordinance Act of 1984 and functions under the purview of the Security and Exchange Commission of Pakistan (SECP).
The task ahead is a difficult one and most certainly this is the “road less traveled by.” We all hope that with the assistance of caring people all over the world we will be able to achieve our goal and build an institution that provides love, affection and care to the most precious and valued commodity on Earth: A child.
