About us

The Board of Management of Marafie Foundation takes this opportunity to thank the Trustees, donors, volunteers, employees and all others who have supported the Foundation in one way or another over the years. Without their valued support, the Foundation would not have been able to achieve the progress that it has made.

The major projects and activities of the Foundation are concentrated in Baltistan, north eastern region of Pakistan. The region is backward and is prone to natural disasters besides suffering from other disadvantages. Despite these hardships, the Foundation has been very successful in its objectives of constructing clinics, schools, community and health centers etc for the betterment of the local population. It is, however, a gigantic task and although the Foundation has always been ready to accept the challenge, it cannot alone fulfil all the requirements of the population. It needs the continued support and donations of people to enable the Foundation to carry on its activities.

The Foundation is also currently active in Afghanistan, Somalia and Morocco in supporting good causes there, and will consider other regions in any part of the globe to extend its charitable activities on a wider scale.

The support may be by individuals or organisations by sponsoring projects which can have the donor’s name mentioned against them, if so desired.

Please get in touch with the Foundation for more details. The generosity and benevolence of all the contributors will be greatly appreciated.
