2013 – Milestones and achievements
With Allah’s blessings and your support, 2013 has been truly a remarkable year for H.O.P.E. for all the outstanding achievements, milestones and objectives that we were able to achieve for the deserving orphaned children in Pakistan on time. Maintaining its tradition of transparency, H.O.P.E., is pleased to share the target versus achievements (in value) for the last year. In 2013, alone, H.O.P.E. raised $314,534.00 (against a target of $120,000.00) and transferred $190,300.00 to Pakistan on time, sponsoring as many as 624 children. For sure, the sincerity of your intention and selfless devotion has brought the community together in their resolve which shows in the form of growing donations. Be assured that this means greater support for even more orphans particularly in the deteriorating situation of Pakistan when and where it’s needed the most.

We were glad to have the participants not only from GTA but also from the areas as far as Kitchener, Waterloo, Hamilton and New Market.
It was in 2013 that H.O.P.E. launched its unique, “A Dollar A Day” orphaned child sponsorship program, Give HOPE – Sponsor A Child with a slogan “Connection with Commitment.” With nearly 200 orphaned children being currently supported specifically through this program, this program enables you to secure a child with a future which would not have been very bright without the help you provide. When you become a sponsor through H.O.P.E., you will be helping orphaned, abandoned and vulnerable children to grow up in an environment that is stable, secure and among friends and people who care for them.
