The Lady Fatemah Charitable Trust is holding its annual Gala Dinner 2011 this Saturday 14th May. It is an evening that includes dynamic speakers, including activist and correspondent Lauren Booth, as well as emel’s Comment writer, Shelina Jamohamad, along with various forms of entertainment and a charity auction.
The Lady Fatemah Charitable Trust is a non-profit, non-governmental and faith-based humanitarian organisation, whose mission is to empower the world’s poorest to lift them out of poverty with dignity. The charity’s primary purpose is to undertake manageable and sustainable projects that can make a real difference to individuals and communities, enabling them to improve their lives.
The evening will also include an auction and requests for pledges by international humanitarian worker Rizwan Hussain. Khayaal Theatre Company will provide the entertainment of the evening by staging a custom-produced play that will explore a thought-provoking and light-hearted theme.
Chairman of The Lady Fatemah Charitable Trust, Amirali G. Karim is hopeful that the Gala Dinner will raise enough funds to exceed the target. “This year, we would like to exceed last year’s target of 150,000 and continue to help the Middle East, Africa, South Asia and East Asia.”
The Lady Fatemah Charitable Trust stands for lending a hand to thousands around the world in many ways, including but not limited to: micro-finance, education support, medical assistance, post-emergency relief, orphan care and food provision.
