In our small way we have tried to improve lives by creating a sustainable impact within the communities we operate, in the areas of Financial Literacy, Health and Philanthropy. We know the critical role Ankaful Psychiatric Hospital plays in the delivery of mental healthcare and we felt it a duty and an honor to respond to the hospital’s appeal for help.
