    Dear Sir

    Pakistan being a developing country rampant with the diseases of
    poverty & gender discrimination, which translates into the worst kind
    of subjugation for women. Keeping that in mind we have ventured forth
    with a determination to assist & support the women of Pakistan in
    attaining their basic human rights specifically health & reproductive
    rights.It is in this context, that we have formulated our goals which we
    hope to achieve through our NGO:


    Our basic objectives are to start at grass root levels and start with
    the creation of awareness of the need to make their health a priority,
    for their own sake and that of their dependents. We want to ensure
    provision of iron and folic acid supplements (every tenth woman in
    Pakistan, is suffering from iron deficiency anemia).We want to help
    them avail basic ultrasound and blood pressure monitoring facilities
    during the course of pregnancy. In case of any obstetric
    emergency,sufficient no. of ambulances should be available in order to
    avert needless disasters. For the Dais (midwives), upon whom a large
    majority of the women of Pakistan are dependent for help in delivery
    and childbirth, we wish to ensure adequate training, & safe kits.To
    gain access & usage of contraceptives to reduce deaths through illegal
    induced abortion. For this we have budget constraints, can you trust &
    oblige. Required documents can be provided, when asked.
