Minhaj Welfare Foundation held their first Our Girls, Our Naat tour in aid of an Orphan girls village. Held in over 10 cities across the UK including London, Birmingham, Woking, Manchester, Glasgow, Dundee, Nelson, Bradford, Sheffield, Leicester, and Cardiff, the fundraising naat tour in March 2018 was unique as it attracted more than 3000 females.
The month long naat tour saw a performance by one of Pakistan’s famous female naat reciters, Hooria Fahim. The naats were permeated with an underlying feeling of spiritual upliftment with smiles and heart touching performances of our love to Allah and his Beloved Prophet Muhmmad (Peace and Blessings for Him), mesmerised the audience and especially the women and children.
There were some inspirational talks about Minhaj Welfare Foundation’s humanitarian efforts by sisters Naheed and Rubab. The two speakers also led the fundraising appeals on the night and had showed great motivation and spirit in ensuring the target was met.
The events would not have been a success without the support of the Minhaj Women League UK. As this was a woman led the event, a lot of effort went into getting many women to attend.
With the money raised, Minhaj Welfare Foundation will begin work on the construction and development of the girl’s college and orphan village in Khanewal, South Punjab. The project is likely to eventually host more than 500 girls providing them access to free and quality education. We would like to thank everyone who came – your presence and pledges were crucial in making ‘Our Girls, Our Future’ a success.
