FROM THE ARCHIVES
We thank the donors who stepped forward and assisted with quickly raising $1600 for twenty wheelchairs, a request that came to us from General Hospital in Lahore, Pakistan. The need was urgent, and the response of the generous and kind donors was as prompt by God’s Grace.
One cannot express in words, and to the extend that one can relate, how a physically challenged person bears hardship in the most mundane of acts and how little is needed to bring ease and dignity into a life. We have witnessed the magnitude of small kindnesses.

Be a sight saver
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 meet people who need an eye test, a pair of glasses, a cataract surgery. Often they are not even aware the sight difficulties they are facing are easily resolved. They suffer. Their quality of life suffers.
For basic testing and eye glasses we work directly. For major surgeries 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.’

Beneficiaries of surgeries sponsored through Lahaute are shared with those who make these gifts. We provide individual feedback when required for these are real people with real needs, and your funds make a real and lasting difference.
