CAMPAIGN: Eid Celebration

Join Team Barkat & Spread Happiness on Eid

 

Children's Hospital, Lahore: A 6-year old oncology patient with her gift bag.

How we started:

This project started as a private family affair, back in August 2012, when Aliha and her siblings, Aimal, Parnia, and Maahin decided to share the joys of Eid with children who had to spend such an auspicious day away from their loved ones.

 

Project Timeline:

18th Ramadan: Donation Collection
25th Ramadan: Buy gifts
26th Ramadan: Wrap gifts
First Day of Eid: Celebrate!

 

Impact:

Since 2012, Team Barkat has been going to Children’s Hospital and SOS Village in Lahore on every Eid-ul-Fitr.

While this project started with just 50 goody bags in its first year,  it has now expanded enough to sponsor 1150 goody bags last year!  Gifts are distributed to paediatric patients and orphaned children who have had to spend their Eid in a hospital or an orphanage instead of their homes with family and friends.

In the past 6 years, this project has helped turn 4500+ frowns upside down!
