Lord Aamer Sarfraz, a British-Pakistani philanthropist has established a foundation for the socio-economic development of youth and children.
The foundation has been named, the ‘Lord Sarfraz Foundation’ which will help in the socio-economic development of youth and children from distant areas of Pakistan. Lord Aamer told the media on Monday that it will support advanced projects for remote areas including issues of youth, healthcare, wildlife conservation, agriculture workers’ health, clean water infrastructure, emergency response, and human rights education.
He further said that for several years, various social programs had already been conducted by the foundation in the country. Different areas of Punjab and other areas had been facilitated through this foundation.
He added that almost 110 free health camps have also been conducted by his organization in South Punjab and rural Sindh. The major aim to do so is to facilitate Agri-workers women and children.
Furthermore, he was asked regarding his social work and philanthropy, he answered, “We established the first ‘Therapeutic Horsemanship Program’ in Pakistan through Equine-Assisted Activities and Therapy designed to serve special needs children in order to enhance the quality and productivity of their lives.”
“The goal is to help these children in social, emotional, cognitive, or behavioral ways. The majority of children participating in ‘Equine Therapy’ are between the ages of 3 to 20 years old and unfortunately, there are not many extra-curricular facilities or activities in Pakistan for special children,” he added.
Meanwhile, one of the children who participated in the horse therapy programme, Fozia Saeed, said “I have observed a quick improvement in Ahmad’s behavior after having equine therapy.
“I think outdoor exposures bring more improvements in these children than indoor activities and our family is so happy and satisfied to see Ahmad physical revival in normal life,” she said.
