The tremendous work we put is not a work of individual or a group of people it is combined efforts of our global donors, well wishers, our doctors, teachers and staff members. It is difficult to name them all yet we cannot ignore their efforts. We express our sincere thanks to one and all for their generous support and pray for their health, happiness & prosperity Ameen.
