He further added that by caring for these children and protecting them from falling into wrong hands we are in fact protecting our own children from becoming orphans”.

It was very encouraging that politicians were taking interest in providing recreational opportunities to the poverty-ridden class of the society, he added.

He said all-out efforts were being made to provide modern basic facilities at Pakistan Sweet Homes, yet there was need to make generous contributions to meet future requirements of the children. He said provision of modern education and quality shelter to the poverty-ridden and deserving segment of the society was main purpose of his life and generous contribution of the philanthropists was required to meet the necessities of the children housed in Pakistan Sweet Homes. On the second day of Quaid-e-Azam week tomorrow the famous tennis star Mr. Aisam Ul Haq will be arriving at sweet homes and will play tennis with Kids of Pakistan Sweet Homes.
