Introduction

Indroduction
Indroduction
The Dua Foundation believes in ‘Serving humanity without discrimination’. Founded by a few professionals from Karachi in 2014, Dua Foundation (DF) is a registered non-governmental welfare organisation. ‘All of them are highly accomplished in their respective fields as well as armed with a built-in spirit of selfless social service. Dua Foundation has been serving people irrespective of their ethnicity, political and religious affiliation, caste or creed in far-flung areas’, the official brochure has informed [1] INTRODUCTION  INTRODUCTION

While talking to this writer, Dr. Faiyaz Alam Siddiqui has informed, ‘It is the hallmark of Dua Foundation that the cost of its projects has always been far less as compared to other schemes of same nature run by other NGOs. The reasons behind low cost incurring on the DF projects are very simple and clear’. According to official press-brief of Dua Foundation, their administrative expenses are very low, as all their office bearers serve voluntarily. They neither have a big office nor purchase luxury vehicles and above all, they don’t spend huge amount of money on programmes, as well as media. ‘We are introducing a culture of simplicity in the field of philanthropy and this is our identity. Dua Foundation tries to stay in touch with you, through social media, as we want to keep you updated about our performance by sharing reports online’ elaborated an ever-busy social-worker, Dr. Faiyaz Alam Siddiqui. He further said that the zealous Dua Foundation founders set the funds generation through social networking websites as their top priority. ‘It is a proven fact that cost of welfare projects can be kept low, by reducing administrative expenses’ added the real man behind curtain of Karachi Institute of Heart Diseases (KIHD), Federal B’ Area. In fact, he had given the technical proposal of the foundation of such an esteemed hospital to facilitate a large segment of city population. He had served his cause in various capacities, including the incharge, media-campaign. But, you may not find his name engraved anywhere in that or any other project for reasons. It may be recalled here that Dr. Faiyaz Alam Siddiqui had helped this writer in preparing the introductory article on KIHD by providing all necessary details. My article was published in both English and Urdu dailies on the occasion of official launching ceremony of KIHD, way back in 2005. And the tragic comedy was witnessed, when, after a lapse of few months, it was again inaugurated by the successors of Naimatullah-led CDGK, with the fictitious claim that it was built by them, rather. Same fake claims were made regarding some 50 parks and other development projects, including roads and bridges. [2] Administrative Expenses 

Free medical circumcision camps

Dua Foundation sets up free medical camps in Karachi, as well as in small cities, villages, towns and ‘Kutchi Abadis’ (may be termed as slums; though not exactly translated) in interior Sindh. Free medical check-up and medicines are provided to patients at these camps. Besides, diabetes screening and haemoglobin tests are carried out free-of-cost. At these medical camps of Dua Foundation, safe free medical circumcision facility is also offered to children up to 10 years of age as it costs Rs2000 in rural areas of Sindh. Even today, male children are circumcised by a quack or untrained barber through traditional unsafe ways in some areas, where Hepatitis ‘A’ and ‘B’ is spreading rapidly. With rising inflation and lack of resources today poor people cannot afford expensive treatment for fatal diseases, Dua Foundation guides and helps such people in their treatment. For that purpose, they are in touch with various hospitals, welfare organisations and physicians. [3] circumcision camps

Projects

Water for Life Project

Dua Foundation is working on various projects to supply potable water to katchi abadies and rural areas in Karachi, Thatta, Sujawal and Tharparkar. By 2015, it had completed more than 65 multifarious water projects benefitting thousands of families. It can be said with certainty that the Dua Foundation projects cost 25 to 30 per cent less than any other similar project. The reason for this is primarily economical operating cost, extreme care observed in expenditures, transparency and smart monitoring of the projects. [5] Water for Life Project

  • Zafar Iqbal
  • Naufil Shahrukh
  • Anas Badr
  • Shakeel Khan
No doubt all of them have been painstakingly contributing towards accomplishing their mission; yet, the most dynamic person is Dr. Faiyaz Alam Siddiqui, for sure. Faiyaz has earned laurels while serving as the Co-ordinator to former City Nazim, Naimatullah Khan Advocate for Health, Media and Safari Park & Zoo.Serving the most prestigious post on honorary basis, he did a lot to mend the deteriorated conditions of some public-sector hospitals like Ziauddin Abbasi Shaheed Hospital, which turned out to be a torture-cell and was serving as gangsters’ den before their turn in the office of Karachi municipality, then called City District Government (CDGK).The vibrant figure of Dua Foundation, Dr. Faiyaz Alam Siddiqui, had organised the foremost Aviculture Show (popularly known as Bird Show) at Safari Park, Karachi in 2005, wherein a number of enthusiast brought in their pet birds and animals. It was for 3 days, only, but, at the request of a large segment of population, it was extended by the then City Nazim, Naimatullah Khan to two more days. Approximately, two lakhs people visited the event for 5 days. And the saddest part of the story is the organisers were given money of only a few thousand tickets; rest was embezzled by the mafia, sitting over there for decades.

Home Care Program

In the health sector, Dua Foundation has recently launched its Home Care Programme. Because of financial constraints, it is restricted to certain areas in Karachi such as Orangi Town, Banaras Colony, Metroville, North Nazimabad, North Karachi, Nazimabad, Federal B Area and Gulshan-e-Iqbal.

Trained and qualified staff will reach the patient to take care of the patient and do what is necessary. This service is delivered free of cost, with no financial burden upon the patient or the family. [7] Home Care Program

With rising inflation and lack of resources today poor people cannot afford expensive treatment for fatal diseases, Dua Foundation guides and helps such people in their treatment. For that purpose, they are in touch with various hospitals, welfare organisations and physicians.

Dua Agro-Farm Project

In some areas of Tharparkar, Dua Foundation has begun to do a farming project, using underground water. Advice and cooperation of agriculture experts is being utilized in this project. The first Dua Agrofarm over eight acres of land has been set up in Goth Lakhadino Loond of tehsil Diplo. Mustard (Sarson) has been farmed here with great success, using tubewell water. Farming experts say that in some parts of Thar, leguminous crops and fodder such as lucerne and jantar can be easily produced for the cattle all the year round. The cost of a tubewell for agriculture is estimated at Rs.200,000-300,000. One tubewell suffices for watering 15-20 acres of agricultural land. [8] Dua Agro -Farm Project

On Eid-ul-Azha, Dua Foundation makes arrangements for animal sacrifices in the villages in Tharparkar, Thatta and Sujawal, and katchie abadies in Karachi, and manages distribution of sacrifical meat among the poor and needy people. [9] Sacrificial Meat for the Deserving and Needy
