As Zummarad Khan, Founder & CEO Pakistan Sweet Home narrates, “During a visit to Swat while on a tour of duty with then prime minister Mr. Yousaf Raza Gillani, I was shocked by what I encountered, children were orphaned as a result of Raah e Raast operation, because their fathers, the primary bread-winners, had died and their mothers had no means by which to feed or clothe them. So, when I witnessed the crippling poverty these innocent children were enduring, I felt an immediate and overpowering need to do something. I could not just walk away. Deep down, I knew if it weren’t for Allah Almighty’s grace and my parent’s determination, their lives could have been mine. So I involved a few of my family members and friends, and adopted a child. This was where the foundation of Sweet Home was laid. I did not expect it to gain popularity in such a short time. It seemed like, in no time, Sweet Home gained enormous momentum.
Established in 2016, Pakistan Sweet Home was created to serve as a home and provide care for orphaned children in crisis around Pakistan. What started as an orphanage for underprivileged orphans has now turned into a family of about 1000 children. Our orphan care services provide education, home, food, medical care and emotional healing to these children.
