Balqees Welfare Foundation (BWF) was set up by Mr & Mrs. Akhtar for the public benefit and the relief of those in need - either by reason of youth, age, ill-health, disability, financial hardship or any other disadvantage in Pakistan. Supertouch (Private) Ltd – Pakistan and Allied International Trading Ltd – UK are the two main corporate donors to our charity.
Balqees Welfare Foundation, United Kingdom and Pakistan has three trustees each and the Pakistan foundation employs two staff.
Balqees Welfare foundation feeds the unwell and disadvantaged, supports the education and care of young people and helps people deal with the effects of poverty in Pakistan. We undertake this by creating and distributing food parcels to charitable healthcare organisations and needy individuals as well as providing grants to charitable organisations in education, shelter and healthcare.
We are for humanity – secular and non-political.
Recognising the levels of poverty in the local society, we wanted to help by feeding the poor but came to realise more needs to be done to raise people out of poverty. Education and health are also paramount to providing people with the opportunity to succeed. As a result, we expanded the foundation’s goals
Balqees Welfare Foundation are committed to achieving through our various programs and initiatives. We aim to provide food for people in need, provide inclusive educational and welfare support for children living with disabilities or in poverty, assist in the welfare of those receiving medical treatment, and help the most vulnerable in society through financial hardship grants. These objectives guide our efforts to make a positive impact on the lives of those who are facing various challenges and difficulties. We believe that by working together, we can create a better world for everyone, and our foundation is dedicated to making that vision a reality.
