Fundraising dinner in aid of orphanages in Pakistan

Last night I was the guest speaker at a fundraising dinner in the Crystal Plaza for orphanages in Pakistan. About 600 people were present. Jannat al Ferdous, founded by Shamim Mahmood and family friends, have set up four orphanages in the last five years, helping over 800 Pakistani children. This is testament to their commitment and vision, as well as the generosity of communities in Birmingham, who once again showed up in large numbers to support this much needed cause.
