Bait-ul-Mal brings about positive change



Pakistan Bait-ul-Mal (PBM) is making all possible efforts to address issues pertaining to a socio-economic imbalance with its life-changing humanitarian and social protection initiatives at national, provincial, divisional, and district levels.

The PBM has been significantly contributing towards poverty alleviation through its various pro-poor services by helping the destitute, widows, orphans, invalid, infirm and other needy persons since its establishment in 1991 through the Act of Parliament. The institution revolutionized lives of millions of people by improving their social order through different initiatives in various areas from health to education and other various forms of assistance.

Hafeez Ahmad, a beneficiary of PBM hailed from Attock while describing his ailment, told a state run news agency that at the age of 21 he was diagnosed with kidney failure. Due to poor financial circumstances and lack of medical insurance, he was getting delayed in medical treatment. However, the PBM took responsibility by providing financial assistance that enabled him to get the dialysis done. “Thanks to the PBM and the government who had established such institutions that serve the ailing humanity during their testing times when people were being faced with inflation,” he added.

Madeeha, another beneficiary said, “Being a child, it was not easy for me to continue my studies as my father passed away in 2020 and my mother had to face tremendous challenges to make us successful in our lives. Without the help of Pakistan Bait-ul-Mal scholarships, I was unable to complete my education in any way. Now I am doing my PhD and PBM awarded me scholarships in Masters (MSC) and MS also,” she added. A Thalassemia patient on condition of anonymity told the agency that the PBM had so far spent Rs one million on his treatment. “
