GCT holding events to entertain its 2,000 orphan students

KARACHI: The non-profit Green Crescent Trust (GCT) has planned to hold three daylong events in three cities to entertain its over 2,000 orphan students, mostly from flood-hit areas and enrolled in its 160 charitable schools in the province.

The three fun-filled events will be held in Karachi, Hyderabad, and Sukkur. These events are a regular feature of GCT under its Orphan Support Program (OSP). “The OSP- fun-gala events are special annual feature of our continuing drive to support the orphan students enrolled in our charitable schools. Our support programme provides regular assistance to the underprivileged families of these students throughout the year,” said GCT CEO Zahid Saeed.

He said that, this year the recreational activity had become all the more important for these students as they had been under enormous stress after witnessing widespread devastation in their native areas due to floods. He said the drive to educate children of the destitute families in the backward areas of Sindh had become more challenging requiring constant support from the concerned philanthropists due to the massive harm done to the educational infrastructure by floods.

Sindh Labour Minister, Saeed Ghani, and Karachi’s Commissioner, Muhammad Iqbal Memon, will be the guests of honour at the OSP gala in Karachi at a famous holiday resort on December 24. Over 1,100 orphan students from Karachi, GHARRO and Thatta will attend the recreational activity. Sindh Governor, Kamran Khan Tessori, will likely be the chief guest at Hyderabad’s OSP gala to be held at Rani Bagh on December 31. Over 720 orphan students from 15 districts will attend the event.

Sindh Local Government Minister, Syed Nasir Hussain Shah, will likely be the chief guest at the OSP gala to be held at Benazir Park in Sukkur on 7th January 2023. Over 130 orphan students from three districts will attend the activity. GCT’s patron-in-chief Sardar Yasin Malik, its donors, and well-wishers will attend these events in large numbers.
