HUF FOUNDER & PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE
established by Ms. Lubna Shakoh, President HUF in the
year 2000 with the vision of “Bridging The Gap Between
The Rich And The Poor”. We are supporting all such
children who are easy targets of abuse and exploitation and
can’t afford education due to financial constraints. We provide
them quality education against Rs.600/- per month only.
To bridge the gap between the rich and the poor. Our vision is to bridge the gap for the poor. It goes beyond today’s survival. The people we touch are dear to us, and we seek to build a real future for them – to give them hope and uplift them.
To be of assistance to underprivileged individuals and families with our programmes, resources and expertise while engaging with the elite communities, our members and supporters as well as our youth. We encourage people to take the lead roles within the organisation.
Addressing a basic need, we provide free daily meals to 365+ impoverished individuals. The Widows Fund and monthly ration distribution programs alleviate hunger, and during the holy month of Ramzan, elaborate iftar is organized.
In our commitment to provide holistic support, we offer separate shelter homes for boys and girls. These homes create a homelike environment while ensuring access to quality English medium education.
Our healthcare initiatives encompass a dispensary in Alnoor Town, Model Colony, Walton Road, Lahore Cantt, catering to 75+ patients daily. Additionally, a fully equipped medical center in Ali View Gardens, Nishat Colony, R.A. Bazaar, serves over 300 patients daily. A mobile health unit tirelessly visits poor backward areas around Lahore six days a week.
Through 1000+ water wells and refurbished wells across Pakistan, hand pumps, R.O. plants, filtration plants, and water coolers, we strive to ensure access to clean water all over Pakistan.
Empowering women is central to our mission. Our vocational training school teaches various skills, including designing, cutting, stitching, sewing, embroidery, ribbon work, and digital fabric painting. Graduating females contribute to society by producing multiple handcrafted apparel. Islamic teachings are seamlessly incorporated into their educational journey.
In 2022, our organization launched a cutting-edge Summer Internship Program, cultivating confidence and empathy. Interns delve into challenges faced by underprivileged groups through rotations in Education, Hunger, Healthcare, Orphan Shelter, and Women Empowerment. The three-week program, three hours daily, totaling 63 hours, prioritizes personal and professional growth, leaving a lasting impact on character and career.
