Will create special fund in KU to help orphans, destitutes: Prof Talat
Srinagar, Aug 11: University of Kashmir, Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Talat has called for creation of a special fund at the University, which could be channelized and dedicated for the welfare of orphans and destitutes of the Valley.
While releasing the Annual Report “Ehsaas” of J&K Yateem Foundation– a Non-Governmental Organisation working for the welfare and rehabilitation of orphans, widows and destitutes in the valley, Prof Talat in his Presidential address said “The work done by the Foundation over the last 12 years for the welfare of orphans is highly appreciable and there is a great need for some kind of support from institution like ours. Therefore I will direct my officers to create some sort of fund in the University, the contributions of which can be then handed over to some NGOs so that they do not face paucity of funds in such a noble cause.”
Prof Talat said the University will try to work out some mechanism and explore possibilities to find out the areas where the education of these children could be supported by its various constituent departments.
“Being a premier institution of the Valley, I believe that the University has to come forward and extend its services for the welfare of orphans and destitutes in its own way. I will discuss the matter with some of the departments of the University like DSW, Distance Education and NSS and try to evolve some mechanism to see if we could provide education support to these orphans in our institution,” said Prof Talat.
University of Kashmir Registrar, Prof S Fayaz said one has to dedicate himself/herself for the social service of mankind and take care of orphans, widows, destitutes and those in distress, as same has been directed to us by Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).
“Our beloved Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) has always laid special emphasis on social service and it is the duty of every Muslim to take care of the orphans and destitute,” said Prof Fayaz.
Coordinator NSS University of Kashmir, Dr Farooq Khan said “Through our volunteers who are spread across various parts of the valley, NSS will create awareness in the society about the condition of these orphans and widows and sensitize the people about the problems faced by this deprived section of the society.”
J&K Yateem Foundation chairman, Muhammad Ahsan Rather highlighted various activities and programmes undertaken by the Foundation for the welfare and rehabilitation of the orphans, widows and destitutes over the last 12 years whereas patron of the foundation, Er. Syed Abdul Hamid presented vote of thanks on the occasion.
