Karachi is a city of many colors – it is one of the biggest cities in Pakistan, and there’s a lot that is commendable about the city: but the one reason that tops it off, is all the welfare work that takes place within the city! There are a lot of welfare activities that happen around the year across the city, both individually and by some of the most prominent welfare trusts in Karachi. Whether it is a natural disaster, or an emergency rescue; we can count on these NGOs for almost everything. We have a list of top welfare trusts in Karachi that have left a remarkable legacy!

Amongst their notable projects and initiatives, their initiative to reform the police stations, mental institutions, prisoners, and help with legal advice has been often talked about.
We have often heard stories about people who gave birth to children with abnormalities – seldom have we heard that their faith was a good one. Most parents abandon such children in Pakistan, which is heartbreaking at the least. One of the very prominent and commendable names in the list of NGOs in Karachi would have to be Darul Sukun. They provide shelter to children, adults, and people of all ages that suffer with a mental or physical disability. It is equipped with some of the most caring and compassionate staff that takes care of these people.
The Citizens Foundation (TCF)
Citizens foundation is a well established name amongst the welfare trusts in Karachi. TCF has worked relentlessly to provide education to the underprivileged children, in order to give them a better chance at a future in Pakistan. There are a number of schools spread across Pakistan. Their education system is up-to-the-mark and is producing well-read and disciplined children for the world.
We saved the best for last! In a cruelty filled world, the works of Abdul Sattar Edhi and his wife Bilquis Edhi have been nothing but a sigh of relief. They have worked relentlessly in the city of Karachi, initially, then all over Pakistan to provide relief to those in need. Edhi Saheb was a role model in himself, there was nothing he wanted more than to serve his people. From ambulance services to rescue missions – he carried it all on his shoulders. Jagah Online can’t help but pay homage to his services!
