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

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.

Depilex Smileagain foundation and its financial auditing and reporting

Financial auditing is a very important obligation of any NGO. Not only the lives of people who the NGOs claim to be serving is at stake, but the confidence of the donators in the integrity of the NGO to which they contribute is also to be retained. Hence the best of auditors take responsibility of the task – for Depilex Smileagain Foundation (DSF) this task is undertaken by Mohsin Mansha of Mansha Mohsin Dossani Khan & Co (MMDK).

MMDK is licensed by The Institute of Chartered Accountants of Pakistan (ICAP) and The Institute of Chartered Accountants in England & Wales (ICAEW). This License is hard to earn and even more difficult to maintain. Embezzlement and Misappropriation of any kind may mean the cancellation of their license, a risk no company would ever like to take.

It has been noticed that some rumors are being spread about Depilex Smileagain Foundation (DSF). Nowadays people don’t act wisely once a rumor is heard about any organization and they immediately start believing irrational accusations. What’s important to know is that rumors are only created to degrade the organizations and eventually affect none but the people which the NGOs are trying to help.

Instead of cultivating doubts and cutting off the rights of the much deserving Acid Attack and Burn Victims one should take out few minutes of their luxurious lives and visit Organizations to know about the authenticity of the rumors which we usually start believing in seconds. People have dedicated their lives, wealth and time for a cause. The people who they help are dependent on the support and aid which are given to them by the donators, for them this is the only source of life, hope and happiness. Please consider that before agreeing to any false information – there are lives at stake.

WHY DO PEOPLE BLAME NGOs AND CHARITY ORGANIZATIONS?

Ngo is a registered non profitable, nongovernmental organization which is committed to help the undeserved through strategic interventions in health, education and skills learning.

We, humans, are meant to help each other. Helping the mankind and bringing relief to their sufferings is the only way we to make our earth encompassed by peace. With the same intention many organizations are working in Pakistan to promote peace for example Bardasht (founded by NILOFER BAKHTIYAR), Shaukat khanam cancer hospital (founded by IMRAN KHAN), depilex smile again foundation (founded by musarrat misbah) etc.

Blame Games Being Played Against Charity Foundations

These organizations are not being run by their founders only. Founders have only taken a step. It’s the people like you and me who are responsible for the success of such NGOs and hence helping the suffering mankind.

NGOs are not meant to earn, they are meant to serve. They run on the top of the financial aids, donations and sponsorships. These donations are the only assets they have to promote peace by helping under privileged sufferers.

It has been noticed that many NGOs are now being blamed for using funds and donations for their personal matters instead of spending it on the sufferers. People, without realizing the truth, believe on the word of mouth and stop donating for the sufferers being helped by that NGO.

It is done to harm the founder. Some people who have their personal clashes with the founder or the organization start spreading such rumors in order to put it to loss. It leaves a really bad effect not on the founder but the sufferers who were being treated. Poeple who blame NGOs should not do it just because of their personal clashes with the founder. This rumor does more harm to the sufferers than the founder or organization’s reputation.

Depilex Smileagain Foundation and its cause of restoring the smiles of acid and kerosene burn victims

People who stop giving donations to NGOs considering them fraudulent should think wise and positive. It does not matter that where your donations are being used. The thing that really matters is that the purpose of your donations is being fulfilled or not. After all it’s GOD who will reward you for your good deeds and intentions, not the people.
