Depilex Smileagain needs your help – Raising Hope for Smiles

Kanwal Qayuum, Sameena Naz, Saba Naz are the three girls selected this year by the Italian Doctors for further surgeries in Italy. These three girls were the victims of brutal acid attacks and have already gone through multiple surgeries and clinical treatments. Depilex Smileagain has not just helped them with their treatments and surgeries but also with the psychological treatments they received to heal the agonizing pain and suffering they went through as a result of these attacks. 

This year during the visits of doctors from Italy, these girls were selected for final reconstructive surgeries that will hopefully bring smiles back to their faces and bring back the life they always dreamed of living. Depilex Smileagain is calling out for your help in bearing the expenses of their visit and stay in Italy. Let’s all hope and pray that these will be the last treatments they go through to get what always belonged to them. THEIR SMILES. To donate online you can use this link or go to our website

An award with the title of a woman who was the wife of our Prophet (PBUH), whose courage, righteousness, and perfection in all relationships made her a role model for all women, and a successful business woman. This is the best way to be recognized for the humanitarian work that I have chosen to do since 2003.”

These were the words of gratitude by Masarrat Misbah who was honored by the Hazrat Khadija Tul Kubra Award in a ceremony held in Avari Hotel Lahore on 6th November 2012.

 

The event was organized by Pakistan Federation of Business & Professional Women (BPWO). Begum Zakia Shahnawaz, advisor to Chief Minister Punjab, was the chief guest on the occasion.

Depilex Smileagain and Stories of Extraordinary Hope

The way things were happening for last few years it was not surprising that violence on such scale took place . Just for taking revenge, one destroys another’s life. We can’t even imagine what goes through that person’s mind, who suffers from different sort of violence. It has become a common practice in Pakistan, that if a girl or a lady refuses for something or defends her for some reason they are burned by throwing acid.

Many innocent girls lost their lives, a few survive with all their dreams shattered; giving up all their hope to live a prosperous life many NGO’s are working on the rehabilitation of such women. Providing them new lives full of hope so they don’t spend their lives in fear. And here we are with few survivors who want to rise like the phoenix.
