Social Welfare and Non-Profit Organisations in Pakistan

Pakistan emphasises on giving charities and serving humanity. However, it contributes more than one percent of its GDP to charity. Studies show that the country gives around PKR 240 billion annually for charity purposes. Indeed, this is such a huge amount given to non-profit organisations in Pakistan. Besides, the Islamic Republic of Pakistan focuses on Zakat during the month of Ramadan, Sadaqa, and Fitrana. Similarly, you will find people participating in social work, donating, and volunteering for social causes.

How can a country flourish without taking care of its unprivileged people? How will they provide them with facilities? Without acknowledging their needs? Without talking about social issues? In such an instant, the NGOs are formed to give a comfortable shelter from the burning heat. There are many organisations who work for the benefit of humanity. So, Let’s find out what these non-profit organisations are!
