The People's Welfare Charitable Trust (which translates to "Idara Khair ul Khalq" in Urdu ) is a charitable non-profit organization started in 2012. The organization was started by a group of philanthropists with a goal of serving the people of Kashmir, protecting and educating the girl child, increasing levels of literacy in women, and providing medical care to the needy. A group of diverse professionals, humanitarians, educationists, and others have gotten together to provide financial support, logistic support, and expertise as physicians, lawyers and engineers to memorialize the respect and love we feel for our beloved Vakeel Sahib and his beloved daughter who provided the inspiration for the beginning of this humanitarian enterprise.
Kashmir Flood update
The recent floods in Kashmir Valley have ravaged the populace. Starting on September 7th and aggravated by torrential rainfall and unusual levels of snow melt, the floods extended to a huge part of the valley inundating houses, crippling infrastructure, killing more than 200 people and producing devastation on an unprecedented scale. More than 200,000 people were rescued from their homes including 87,000 in the capital city of Srinagar alone. There are no historical weather records of such a flood in the area leaving unprepared government services overwhelmed and more than 3000 villages across the state in dire need of assistance. Hospitals have been shut down and are working at minimum capacity. This weather event has been dubbed the Hurricane Katrina of Kashmir. The response of state and federal governments has been grossly inadequate and people are suffering for lack of shelter, food and medications. Idara Khairul Khalq has been trying to organize humanitarian assistance to needy people across the valley. We need your assistance in terms of donating and volunteering. Donations will be used solely for providing relief such as clean drinking water, medicines, food, and other emergency supplies to the affected people. Please donate generously to help all those in crises and contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Any donation, big or small, is equally welcome and will go a long way in providing succor to the needy and desperate in this time of great need.
