Islamabad - Students of Roots School System DHA1/ Ivy International Islamabad are actively taking part in relief efforts for the flood victims in Punjab. Social responsibilities, community services and empathy towards the underprivileged segment of the society are moral principles highly encouraged and inculcated in all students of Roots School System DHA1/ Ivy International by CEO Khadija Mushtaq.

Students of Roots School System DHA1 campus/ Ivy International Islamabad have always been very proactive in social community service projects. Previously, these students took part in the ‘Davis Projects for Peace’ carrying out surveys in rural areas of Chakwal and installing solar panels for clear drinking water, raising funds for SOS Children’s Village through various events like arranging Iftars, movie night, celebrating World Sight Day with Al-Shifa Eye Trust by organizing free eye checkup camps at school, organizing the Pink Ribbon Awareness Campaign against Breast Cancer, educating the girl child for Liberating the Girl Child Foundation (LGCF), fundraising for the IDPs and much more.

This year Lions Club International Foundation supporting the compassionate humanitarian services worldwide selected a group of students from Roots DHA1 campus/ Ivy International Islamabad based on their comprehensive previous community service record to collaborate with them in raising funds and doing relief efforts for the flood victims in Punjab.

Roots Help Society, Savior Welfare Organization, Prime Rootsians Community Services and READ collectively raised Rs. 0.6 million for the flood victims. Students who actively headed these societies included Ismail Zahid, Malik Faisal, Abdul Sattar and Maaz Ali from Roots DHA1 campus/ Ivy International Islamabad.

Relief goods worth Rs. 0.6 million were supplied to the villagers of Gujrat. Relief items included food packages, mineral water bottles, rice, medicines, veterinary medical care, tents (as a temporary shelter), clothes, baby care utilities, blankets, etc. CEO Khadija Mushtaq also donated generously and actively took part in helping the flood victims. She encouraged all her students to eagerly take part in social work as Roots not only focuses on educating students but also on grooming them to become responsible citizens that can contribute positively to the world.

Villagers of Gujrat were grateful to Roots DHA1 campus/ Ivy International Islamabad for the relief efforts. Khadija Mushtaq said that the relief goods will continue to be supplied on a weekly basis till the rehabilitation of the affected people is complete.

Although this is a difficult time for the people of Pakistan due to the recent floods, yet it is true that every single person belonging to this glorious nation wants to contribute in helping those who are suffering and are in dire need. Pakistan is proud to have such students like Faisal Malik, Ismail Zahid, Maaz Ali, Hamza Asif, Sheikh Daniyal, Bilal Hassan Raja, and Raja Haris Satti that are actively helping the flood victims in medical and veterinary camps in collaboration with Lions International.
