AHS Foundation

Welcome

A non profit making charity endeavouring to support life and develop communities to thrive, in remote and detached areas where the infrastructure and resources are non existent to very limited.  

Earthquake 2005

The incident proved that humanity is common heritage of mankind beyond all divisions. Humanitarians  and volunteers from all over the world rushed to rescue the lives devastated by the calamity.

Mission

Along with thousands of others, we reached and moved further to the distant area where others couldn’t dare to venture. The area of our activities is still many miles away from the basic facilities like transportation, infrastructure, health-care, education, reasonable shelter, medicine, nutrition, clean water, communication etc.

Humanitarian Services

Since 2005 we are serving the genuinely deserving humanity  in health, medicine, education and nutrition. Vigo Group sponsors the working staff and the funding from friends provides relief to the resource-less communities. 

Delivering Hope

Let’s make life easy for those who have no choice but compromise. After all, the life is a short time of few decades single chance for everyone.

Please donate for the Humanity if you don’t have time to help. Fund us for the life saving projects like healthcare and medicine, or share your grant for education and food packages.

                As humans we wish to earn and accumulate sometimes a lot more then we require. Many of our fellow human being’s desire only a source to survive. 

It is only a matter of chance. The difference between “giver and receiver is the mere length of an arm” 

Some of us are fortunate to acquire and some aspire for very little, they live a life without much desire.  

Those who have must contribute, for those who are destitute.

Project Manager AHS Foundation

                   For me working with AHS Foundation revealed the difference between “living and leading” a life. When my 7-bedroom home was destroyed in the earthquake not only did I lose the materialistic things I had collected but also the man who had brought me up.

The loss of my father helped me to see life from different angle.

Living life with material was not as comforting as I had once thought.

My transition from living to leading was extremely difficult. However, my involvement with the Foundation has enabled me understand what life with less materialistic things and lots of love from those who need and deserve our help can offer.

“From my experience I have been fortunate enough to see that inner peace is more soothing than outer comfort”

Rehabilitation

Noon Bagla   and its catchment area needed long term support as there was nothing one can call basic facility. The health of people was our priority. We found that there was nothing regarding health, except uneducated and untrained, healers the people rely upon. Countable trained health professionals were available in cities and big towns dozens of miles away.    We discussed …… Read more >>

Muhammad Akbar – A tale of optimism.

Waheed Gilani.   2007

I see many people hanging around the site of the hospital every day. They love to ask questions about the future of the village and construction of the hospital. I am sure they all know that the queries they do have been repeated many times since the start of the work. But still they ask the same questions whenever they get a chance.

“How much the machine is costing you? How long is it going to take? Where the doctors will come from? What kind of building it would be? Where staff will stay? How the market would look like after the completion of the hospital?” And so on.

There questions don’t bother me because I know the reason why they want to talk about the hospital. Indeed they were not expecting such a big project in an isolated area like Noon Bagla. They want to make sure that they are not dreaming. The scars of the earthquake are still very fresh and they remember the screaming of injured women and children. Many of them cannot forget the helplessness, when they were unable to save their members of joint family from extinction, who could survive if there were a medical help available here or nearby. Not a something big or special but only a bandage, or clean cotton wool, an antiseptic ointment or  pain killer pills that could relieve many people from suffering for weeks or months long treatment in far distance hospitals. It is therefore they come and ask the same questions everyday. I feel an inner satisfaction when my polite replies sooth them and a hopeful shine appears in their eyes. God know what it will be there tomorrow, but at least we have given hope to the grieved people who had no charm in the life anymore.

Muhammad Akbar, an old man of 70 plus misses no chance of coming to the site, sitting silently, and watching the excavator working at site. Then dragging himself to the team of workers. He comes to a temporary hut where the mix tea is available. I also sit there for meeting with the workers and discuss things about work. Muhammad Akbar never misses the meetings. He does not speak even a single word nor would he ask a question. But he would sit there to listen what we speak or interact with operator or contractor etc.

A couple of weeks ago I had a meeting with the constructor who is building the retaining wall along with the road side. I arranged the meeting in rest house lawn to avoid any unnecessary interruption. Five minutes later, Muhammad Akbar appeared from the bushes. “Uncle where have you come from?” I inquired.

“I saw you coming here so I followed you” he replied.

“Well we are having an important meeting here.” I said.

“I am not going to speak or disturb. I shall just listen” He replied.

I smiled and joked “Are you sure you will keep silent?”   

“Yes son” he replied.

I noticed his curiosity and offered him a seat nearby.

The tea arrived and I offered him my cup of tea and ordered another for myself.

“Muhammad Akbar Saab I have noticed that you come to the hospital construction site everyday and hang around. Why are you so much interested?” I asked him in a happy tune.

He sipped the tea, looked at me, then he looked on the ground and again at me and said

“Son, I am a setting sun. I am here today and may won’t be here tomorrow. But I am very happy that our coming generations will have a healthy and better life.

Look how many people have died unaided in the earthquake. Who expected that an agony like that will hunt all of us? Think that if there were a hospital, or a doctor here, how many people could be saved who died due to lack of medical help?

Count how many children have died in transit from here to Muzaffarabad? I don’t know whether I shall see this hospital or not but I am sure that the luck of our people is going to change. Nobody gave any heed to this beautiful village. Instead many people have destroyed the natural beauty of our land by chopping and cutting the trees from our forest. What we had has gone now.

This was beyond my imagination that people from England will come here in Noon Bagla and help us. I have seen all the people who have visited here. Why they come here, this far..?

I come to see these great people who are working for humanity. They are sharing our soreness. They travel for days to come here and console us though they have no blood relations here. Yet they want to do so much. I believe that a lot of lives will be protected now and all of us will die, but at an ease”

            It was a surprise for me that an illiterate old man was speaking like a philosopher. I was staring at him feeling naive in front of a so-called illiterate, but indeed an institute of life experiences. He took few more sips from his cup and started speaking again.

“A lot of people including you might be thinking that I have nothing to do, therefore I come here to kill my time. That is not true. I have no stamina to follow the people all around the village. But I walk with them to the village, and the school or anywhere they go. Just to watch them because they are great people who love humanity. And you too kid, because you are also busy with the people who are changing the destiny of our village. I know you have not done anything for yourself or your family as yet. God will help you. I am proud that you belong to our village and community”

            I felt that my eyes were getting moisten because  I could not do as much for my people as they think. They consider my humble contribution of merely time, too much because they are deprived people and have nothing much in their life. I was bashful and didn’t want to speak anymore on this topic. In low and meek voice I said:

            “Uncle pray for all of those who are struggling to help us and bringing hope in our lives. God willing one day Noon Bagla will be an example for the people of the region”

            “Shall I see that day?” He asked enthusiastically.

            “God Willing you will” I said.

He closed his eyes and raised his hands for prayer.

(Muhammad Akbar has passed away few year ago, but he has seen the Hospital in Noon Bagla)
