Free accommodation for orphans and poor children

FREE ACCOMMODATION FOR ORPHANS AND POOR CHILDREN

We provide the means for children who weren’t able to continue their education because of financial difficulties and the lack of services at rural areas. With the help of partner local charities  we provide, before all else, accommodation and transportation as well as food, clothing and educational materials to children. Everything is so that children can further their education in a safe place even when away from home.

We rented 5 facilities with over 200 students in two cities of Pakistan (Lahore, Tobe Tek Singh) in 2021. These establishments, operated by our partner local charities, gives a safe and free space for children to go to state or private schools.

Schools are not only places where children learn but also a safe space for them to develop their social and mental skills. It’s impossible for a child to gain the same social experience they gained in school while at home. For children to be in contact with peers in a social institution like a school is of utmost importance for their mental health. However, due to the pandemic, it’s been recorded that 6 children out of 10 do not have access to the education they need for various reasons. The fact that half of children aged 6-11 haven’t gained even the basest skills in reading-writing as well as maths clearly paints a picture of how bad things really are.

We brought computers to another classroom in Mongolia

WE BROUGHT COMPUTERS TO ANOTHER CLASSROOM IN MONGOLIA

In the information age, computers are the easiest and fastest way to access the world… As IFCED, we bring computers, which have become a basic educational need today, to students in need.

While there have been changes in every phase of our lives during and after Covid-19, education have been significantly affected by this change. Access to computers and technological devices has become a necessity rather than a luxury.

IFCED, which aims to provide children with a better education through sustainable education projects, continues to develop projects in this regard. We meet the needs of schools and student dormitories in different parts of the world and help students receive a better equipped education. One of our project areas is building computer classrooms. Our campaign, which is the subject of this news article, had a different meaning. Charitable volunteer students equipped their fellow students in need with computers, even though they were thousands of kilometers away from them.

Technology Link from Students to Students

The donations collected through a campaign organized by the students of Marathon Science School in London, England, turned into a computer classroom in Mongolia with the partnership of the Marathon Science School and IFCED Foundation. A computer classroom was opened in the boarding institution where orphaned and poor children are sheltered during their education. Located in Ulgii, Mongolia, the institution houses 80 children. The children go to school in the morning and stay in this institution after school. In the institution, where lessons are given to support their school education, all kinds of needs of the children, including 3 hot meals, are met.

With this campaign, we see that great geographic distances are not important to lend a helping hand.

You too can meet the needs of a child in need. You too can help prepare them for a better world.

22 Water Wells in 2022

22 WATER WELLS IN 2022

With the idea that water is life, we deliver the source of life even to the remotest corners suffering from thirst. With the 22 wells we drilled in 2022 thanks to you, we are one step closer to our goal of a more livable world.

As IFCED, we drilled water wells in 22 different villages of Pakistan in 2022. All of the wells were drilled in the gardens of village schools. Thus, children will be able to benefit from the wells first, then other people and animals living in the village. Thanks to the wells, children will be able to drink clean water and use the water of these wells for their personal hygiene.

Why Pakistan?
According to United Nations (UN) data, 40 percent of infectious diseases and related deaths in Pakistan are caused by contaminated water. With a population of nearly 200 million, half of the 100,000 people who die from waterborne diseases in Pakistan are children under the age of 10. The citizens of the country, who have great difficulty in accessing clean water hold on to life healthily with clean water wells…

Special Water Wells for IFCED
IFCED’s water wells in Pakistan are in the form of a dispenser. In addition to a hand pump, the water is stored in a 2-ton tank with an electric motor. Children can drink water from the faucets (6-10) located around the tank. Electricity is provided by solar panels in areas where electricity is not available.

How does the water well project work?
First of all, a feasibility study is conducted by the local partner association operating in the region. As a result of the research, priority is given to areas with high population density and where water is urgently needed. A water well project is initiated for the prioritized areas and with the support of you, our local partners, the technical and construction parts of the water well are completed. When the project is completed, an opening ceremony is held. The video of the ceremony is sent to the benefactors who helped build the well. As IFCED, we put sustainability of our charity work as a great priority. We maintain the water wells in certain periods and fix any deficiencies.

We were present in the flood-hit country of Pakistan

WE WERE PRESENT IN THE FLOOD-HIT COUNTRY OF PAKISTAN

Thousands of people lost their lives and millions were left homeless in the flood disaster caused by the monsoon rains. The rains started in Pakistan in June 2022 and were effective for months.

Pakistan, one of the leading countries known for flood disasters, has experienced the biggest flood disaster of recent years.  As a result of the overflow of the Indus and Kabul rivers, a significant part of the country was flooded. In the statement made by the Pakistan National Disaster Management Agency, it is stated that the number of people who lost their lives in the flood disaster reached 1700 and the number of injured reached 12 thousand. 632 of those who lost their lives are children.

In the statement made by the authorities, it is reported that more than a third of the country was flooded after the heaviest monsoon rainfall in recent years. It was also reported that 325 thousand houses were destroyed, 733 thousand houses were damaged and at least 700 thousand animals perished. It is estimated that the damage of this flood disaster to Pakistan will be 40 billion dollars and about 9 million Pakistanis will live in poverty due to floods. It may take years for the country, which is already struggling with poverty, to recover.

IFCED Was Present
IFCED was with the people of Pakistan in this difficult day. With the aid campaign launched, we brought the aid of the philanthropists to Pakistan. A tent city consisting of 33 tents was established in Rajanpur, Pakistan. Tents, mosquito nets, blankets and food parcels were distributed to the families here. In addition, 150 families affected by floods in Taunsa Shareef city were provided with basic food supplies to meet their needs for at least two months.
