A Message From Maaz Ali

Welcome to my fundraiser page!

My name is Maaz Ali, and I’m a recent graduate from the Health Sciences program at McMaster University.

First off, I wanted to thank everyone that contributed to my campaign last year, I appreciate and love you all for having done so! In light of last year’s success, it only makes sense for me to double down and try to surpass our previous goal; and so, here we are!

A recent trip to Pakistan left me awe-struck. Aside from seeing the unimaginably difficult conditions that a large majority of people there live under, there was one experience in particular that drove me to launch my fundraiser this year.

During our stay at my grandma’s, my mom and I met a 12 year old girl named Nadia—she came in place of her mother to do some house cleaning. She said that her mother recently had a baby, and that she was now taking care of her mom’s work for the next little while. Nadia went on to say—with the utmost joy and enthusiasm, mind you—that before going to work each day, she’d cook breakfast for her entire family, and after cleaning the rest of the tenants in our building that her mother worked for, she would go home in the evening to clean her own house and cook dinner for her family.

Now, I honestly don’t believe anyone is in a position to pass remarks about another’s lifestyle, especially if they whole-heartedly enjoy it; but what dispirited me was that she would never experience the pleasure of going to school and being responsibility free. She would never know the life a child her age should be living.

Why? Because she couldn’t afford to.

My mother and I met Nadia, and perhaps you’ve also met someone in a similar situation, the point is that there are far too many of these children to count; and unfortunately, not enough is being done to help them. No child, girl or boy, should have the responsibilities of earning for and taking care of their families—and yet, this is the reality for most orphaned children.

In honour of meeting Nadia, this year I pledge to raise $4320 and sponsor 10 orphans in Pakistan. These funds will provide our recipients with timely meals, a quality education, basic medical care, and other daily necessities for the next entire year.

With the campaign ending on March 1st, we are left with a little under 2 weeks to raise this amount, but hopefully with our collective efforts we can actualize this goal and help alleviate some of the struggles and strifes these children have endured for far too long.

Thank you for taking the time to read my statement. I humbly request your support in whatever capacity possible: donations will be greatly appreciated, but most importantly, please share this page with your family and friends. The more individuals we reach, the greater the impact we can have.

And on that note, let’s begin, shall we?

McMaster Orphan Sponsorship Program 2019

About This Campaign

McMaster MSA is partnering with various other student groups to spearhead the McMaster Orphan Sponsorship Program 2019. We are fundraising to sponsor orphans from around the world this year through a campus-wide 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!
