Syed Foundation and Research & Development Foundation have joined hands for sports promotion and a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) in this this regard was inked between their top officials at Hotel Mehran, Karachi, on June 18. 

Syed Wasim Hashmi, President, Syed Foundation, and Ashfaq Ahmad Soomro, Director, Research & Development Foundation, signed the MoU on behalf of their respective organizations in a simple but graceful ceremony. 

Wasim Hashmi, in his introductory address, briefed the audience about the aims and objectives of Syed Foundation which was established three years ago with initial activities revolving around arranging food and shelter for handicapped and less privileged persons. 

He recalled that Syed Foundation, with the collaboration of Research & Development Foundation and Alamgir Welfare Trust, had reached out the masses in the flood affected areas of interior of Sindh to provide ration of food, drinking water and medicine. 

Ashfaq Soomro, in his speech, revealed that Research & Development Foundation had facilitated nearly three and a half lacs persons in 10 districts of Sindh during their flood relief initiatives. 

He felt that the activities of Research & Development Foundation and Syed Foundation, besides other non-governmental organizations, helped the flood affected people enormously in moving them to safer places where they were looked after in the best possible manner. 

Ashfaq Soomro was of the opinion that the joint venture of Research & Development Foundation and Syed Foundation will bring smiles faces on the faces of many people who deserve assistance and support in their rehabilitation after having endured traumas. 

Shaikh Nisar Ahmad, Chairman, Alamgir Welfare Trust, expressed similar sentiments and urged the like-minded NGOs to engage into such kind of activities to reach wider audience and bring about positive changes in their lives.
