ہو میرا کام غریبوں اور یتیموں کی کفالت اور مدد کرنا ہے میری ترجیح وہ لوگ ہیں یتیم ہیں اور جن کا گھر میں کوئی کمانے والا نہیں ہے۔ وہ لوگ جن کا اللہ کے سوا کوئی سہارا نہیں۔لوگوں کیلئے آسانیاں پیدا کرو تاکہ تمہارا "رب" تمہارے لیے آسانیاں پیدا کرے۔میں نے ہر ادارے کو درخواست بھیجے کوئی جواب نہیں آرہا میں اکیلا خدمت کرتا ہوں ہمارے علاقے میں ایسی یتیم بچی ہے ان کے پاس خوراک نہیں ہے اور یہ سرد موسم میں ان کے پاس نہ کپڑے ہے نہ شوز ہے کچھ بھی نہیں ہے اور بہت مشکلاتوں سے زندگی گزار رہے ہیں. ہو میرا کام غریبوں اور یتیموں کی کفالت اور مدد کرنا ہے سردیاں شروع ہیں اگر آپکے پاس ایکسٹرا گرم کپڑے (جرسی ، سویٹرز وغیرہ) ہوں تو پلیز کسی یتیم کو ڈونیٹ کردیں۔🙏 مہنگائی بہت ہے🤲 اور گھر میں کوئی کمانے والا بھی نہیں ہے
