Our Aim Foundation's work in Pakistan i Thatta
Our Aim Foundation's work in Pakistan is helping one of the most critically in-need populations in the world.
The Thar Desert in Pakistan is among the most densely-populated in the world. It is also one of the most impoverished regions, as well. Poverty, lack of education, unreliable access to hygienic sanitation facilities and medical treatment has inspired Our AIM Foundation to partner with local Pakistanis in the Thar Desert to provide better solutions for their communities.
We at Our AIM distribute food and clothing to some of the poorest families in the region, but many in the Sindh region still go without. In the region that Thatta sits, more than 70% of people live in abject poverty.
Malnutrition is a common ailment for the children who make it into medical clinics. Still, many don't receive medical treatment. We are attempting to change that, by bringing doctors and nurses into Our AIM Foundation's site, where we are building our next Holistic Community Center.
Bringing clean, potable fresh water to the people of Thatta has been among our top priorities. We have since constructed over 150 bore-wells and personal hygiene facilities in the region, giving tens of thousands of villagers access to clean water and sanitary bathing and restroom accommodations. The HCC in Pakistan is currently under construction here as well, promises to bring all the benefits of our Malawian HCC to the people of the Thar Desert once complete.
Fetching water from a distance was cumbersome and difficult for all women of village in Sindh Pakistan.
After the installation of the bore well, one resident says:
“Now women do not need to go at a distance to the fetch water, it's available to them right around the corner. This makes them feel much more comfortable. The installation of Hand pump has enhanced our courage and morale."
By donating to Our AIM, ouraim.Org Founder Nisha Mandani, you help these children and families survive in some of the most difficult circumstances, and take a step toward climbing out of poverty. Please give generously to save lives.
Giving hope and empowering lives,
Our AIM Foundation

Let's fight against turbulence and embarrassment!
We, people, are so sympathetic rather than being empathetic people means; we feel only sorry for every worst situation, we feel only pain and just literally share our pains making the worst situation even more painful and miserable, we have only sense of pity, not compassion, compassion does mean taking an action following commiseration, we have only feelings, not initiatives, dreams, not actions.
Empathetic pain (empathy) does mean feel sorry for and get initiatives, take pity and action simultaneously to solace and succor to appease someone's sorrow and self-deception! Don't exercise only verbal compassion, verbal succor, and verbal consolation. Be proactive and assertive! Just like this, we have desperation, not inspiration; we don't get inspired by others, our fellows, our acquaintances, our bosses, our sponsors, our compatriots having more pelf or power, influence or opulence because it is all only for their status symbol, it's their privilege, it's for their limelight, sophistication, ostentation, and luxuries which enhances only their standard of living not quality of living; in return, we get nothing more but avarice, envy, jealousy, malice, grudge, rancor, sense of self-pity, frustration, and sense of deprivation which leads our society to nothing but desperation and temptation; resultantly, society gets prone to inequity, injustice, disruption, misery, discontent, and chaos! People tend to become chaotic to feel deprived and forsaken, they begin to get frustrated and desperate inimical to rather getting inspired and motivated.
You can take glaring examples of the dedicated world, i.e Bill Gates, Warren Buffet, Steve Jobs, founders of Amazon, F.B. Apple, Alibaba, Google, etc. they think win-win believing in core values of altruism, humanity, philanthropy, empathy, integrity, generosity and charity having meaningful and purposeful life is the pioneers, tycoons and the torchbearer of the digital civilization! They believe in sincere returning! They transform their people, people get inspired by reading them, visiting them, listening to them, people become their followers! They practice trust, collaboration, synergy, and entrepreneurship, whereas we tread on against the laws of nature going against the grass having scarcity mentality, misanthropic thinking, fixed mindset, egoistic & pessimistic approach in almost every situation of life. This is commonly why our society creating chaos making people poorer from the poor and richer from the rich leaving behind only desperation and doldrum, inequity and frustration, retaliation and revenge that is not only causing embarrassment & disorientation here but will also become devastation and humiliation on the Doomsday the Day of the Judgment and Reckoning.
Summing up, what we need indeed is to have transforming leadership anyhow somehow as a prerequisite not to blindly follow bandwagon, herd of scoundrels and hooligans so that people could be developed and taught meaningful life, youth could be instilled with worth and values for the sake of better tomorrow free from suicides and miseries, adversity and injustice, inequity and oppression as an unprecedented gift for our young generations...
Every thing has an impact on your life, doesn't matter how ordinary it may be. Mostly people you associate with, environment you live in or words you often listen and repeat on daily bais.
For exp: if a person is titled as a "mad" by his colleagues and family members starts acting as a mad person bcz after some time his own mind starts to accept that some how it's true. In the same way if a person is appreciated he makes himself better and better.
What you think what is the reason of increased anxiety now adays, ofcourse news channels are a big source of negativity, how can a person feel good after listening bad news evey hour.
So if it's happening with you, then change your attitude. Review your words you often use in daily conversation, bring some gratitude and you will feel better. Thank to Allah Almighty for every thing you have. Avoid discouraging people, Keep in touch with friends who give you confidence and keep yourself busy reading any interesting book. And try to put positive things in your head bcz your brain never remains void if you will not put positive things in, it will attract negativity due to it's easy availablility..
India Spoiling Afghan Peace Process To Damage Pakistan Concerns
ISLAMABAD: Pakistan on Wednesday warned about ‘spoilers’ trying to undermine the peace process in Afghanistan as efforts for kick-starting the long-elusive intra-Afghan dialogue continue.
“Afghan peace process has entered a critical phase. We, therefore, need to remain alert to the elements, who are attempting to sabotage the progress,” Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi told US Special Envoy for Afghan Reconciliation Zalmay Khalilzad.
Mr Khalilzad, accompanied by his delegation, reached here from Tashkent (Uzbekistan), as part of his three-nation trip that will also include Doha (Qatar). In Tashkent, the special envoy met foreign ministers from five Central Asian States — Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Kazakhstan and Kyrgyz Republic — under the C5+1 dialogue format to urge them support the Afghan peace efforts.
Mr Qureshi, while reaffirming Pakistan’s continued support for peace efforts, said: “Pakistan remains committed to working with international and regional stakeholders for sustainable, peaceful, and political resolution of the Afghan dispute.”
The foreign minister welcomed the readiness of both Afghan government and the Taliban for participation in the intra-Afghan dialogue and announcement of their negotiation teams. He said the dialogue would pave the way for lasting peace in the war-ravaged country that has been in conflict for decades.
Qureshi in meeting with Khalilzad urges ‘all sides’ to reduce violence
The Afghan government and the Taliban have also agreed on Doha as the venue for their talks. However, the delay in the release of prisoners has been holding up the start of the negotiations, which were originally scheduled to commence on March 10 following the signing of Doha Accord between the US and the insurgent group.
Afghan authorities, as per the agreement, were to release 5,000 insurgency fighters, while the Taliban were to set free 1,000 Afghan forces men in their custody. Kabul claims to have released 4,000 Taliban and the Taliban say they have freed about 700 government soldiers. There are, however, differences between the two sides over the numbers.
Head of Taliban Political Office Mullah Baradar, in a video conference with US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Tuesday night, said the delay in the start of negotiations was because of slow process of releasing the detainees, and the establishment of security points by government security forces.
Another sticking point is the heightened violence. The Taliban say their fighters conducted ‘operations’ against Afghan forces trespassing the areas held by them, otherwise they have abided by the understating on lowering violence by not attacking major cities and military installations.
Mr Qureshi expressed the hope that release of prisoners would be completed soon. He further urged “all sides” to reduce violence.
There have been questions about high-profile assassinations and attacks in and around Kabul, including the June 23 killing of Afghan prosecutors and government employees, and the bombing of a vehicle carrying human rights activist Fatima Khalil on June 27.
These attacks have not been claimed by any group. Amb Khalilzad had after the killing of the prosecutors tweeted: “This attack underscores what we all know: Spoilers (both domestic and foreign) are trying to disrupt and delay.”
Mr Qureshi, in his meeting, re-emphasised the need for being alert to the sinister designs of the ‘spoilers’.
Mr Khalilzad is being accompanied on this trip by Chief Executive Office of US International Development Finance Corporation (USDFC) Adam Boehler. He is pushing Trump administration’s plans for increased regional connectivity, trade and development.
The USDFC was set up in 2018 for American investments in development projects in low- and middle-income countries around the world. Many suspect it to have been set up for countering China’s Belt and Road Initiative and its flagship project China-Pakistan Economic Corridor.
Nothing was said in the Foreign Office’s media statement about what is being offered by the USDFC.
Death of Elephants in Bostwana
Hundreds of elephants have died mysteriously in Botswana's famed Okavango Delta, the head of the wildlife department said on Thursday, ruling out poaching as the tusks were found intact.
The landlocked southern African country has the world's largest elephant population, estimated to be around 130,000.
“We have had a report of 356 dead elephants in the area north of the Okavango Delta and we have confirmed 275 so far,” Cyril Taolo, the acting director of the department of Wildlife and National Parks, told AFP in a text message.
He said the cause of the deaths was yet to be established with anthrax having been ruled out.
“We do not suspect poaching since (the) animals were found with tusks,” he said.
Samples have been collected and sent to South Africa, Zimbabwe and Canada for testing.
Similar deaths were first reported in May when authorities found 12 carcasses in just a week in two villages in the northwest of the country.
The latest discoveries were flagged by a wildlife conservation charity, Elephants Without Borders (EWB), whose confidential report referring to the 356 dead elephants, was leaked to the media on Wednesday.
EWB suspects the elephants have been dying in the area for about three months.
According to the report dated June 19, 2020, “70 per cent of elephant carcasses were considered recent, having died about a month ago, and 30 per cent of the carcasses appeared fresh, ranging from one day to two weeks old”.
“There was good evidence to show elephants of all ages and sex appear to be dying,” said the report penned by EWB director Mike Chase.
Several live elephants appeared to have been weak, lethargic and emaciated, with some showing signs of disorientation, difficulty in walking or limping, EWB said.
“One elephant was observed walking in circles, unable to change direction although being encouraged by other herd members,” said the report.
Coronavirus will not end, This virus is dangerous until vaccine discovered. Virus will remain with us even after treatment. Typhoid, cholera, flu killed millions of people in its time. After cure, coronavirus will be called a common disease like typhoid.
SURVIVE NOW, CRY LATER.
Nations survive in difficulties only when people are
united and ready to support each other.however
unfortunately in Pakistan, we have two classes. A
richest and poorest but rarely we find people in model
class. Approximately 50 percent of the population is
below poverty. Even they can't afford two times meal
a day. So now we are suffering from COVID-19 and we
are not full of resources to maintain our
economy. To overcome COVID-19 we had lockdown in
the whole country but the poor who earn on daily
weges are in difficulty.on the other hand, if we put an
eye on Elite class we get to know that wealth they
have is from corruption by media resources. Many of
Elite class families were not wealthy first but now
they are a billionaire and most of these got into politics
a few years back. gradually they got wealth like bill
gates. Today we get to know from Elite class families
are having NAB cases for the corruption of
billions, money laundering and land acquisition.so I get
frightened that our system has that much flaws or
the whole system I see is my illusion and there
is another system behind us.by which they
are chance for
corruption freely and no one is there to stop them.
Pakistani elite class families are mostly politicians if
we look on there life from beginning till now and try to
figure out which works are done by them that they
are billionaires today. very few in the world know people who are a billionaire in a short
time by talent and
luck. Important thing is rich people in the world
they donate for humanity and participate in
social works and
donate a big amount of there wealth. same thing
happens in Pakistan but by the model class. Elite class
avoid to donate as a fear of getting caught by NAB.
Elite class is very much Stingy in donation only
because of fear to get caught so they can donate
Anonymously and help Pakistan in this difficult time. In
this COVID-19 they can help poor and needy as we are
having lockdown in the country and save the
