A Message From Aisha Tousif
My name is Aisha and I am raising money for orphans in Pakistan under the McMaster Orphan Sponsorship Program, a campaign very dear to me. On the few trips that I have taken to Pakistan, the prevalence of young children on the streets trying to fend for themselves is both humbling and heartbreaking. Due to natural disasters, political unrest, civil and military disputes in various regions, the country has faced great challenges, hurting the youngest members of society in particular.
Big change is a product of small, collective efforts from sincere hearts. Let's make a difference together!
“Blessed is the wealth of the Muslim, from which he gives to the poor, the orphan and the wayfarer.” (Muslim)
About This Campaign
The charity we are working with is SOS Children's Villages, a non-religious and non-political charity that has a stellar international reputation. Additionally, it has schools, orphanages, programs in nearly every country in the world which ensures that this Campaign will be a truly global initiative. It costs $432 to sponsor a child for one year and $300 to sponsor a village. Each participant can select the location of where their contribution is directed.
Four competitions will be held through Giveffect:
1. Which faculty can raise the most money.
2. Which student club can raise the most money.
3. Which team can raise the most money.
4. Which individual can raise the most money.
We invite you to be part of this great campus-wide initiative!
