The friends of SOS, committee party for the month of September was a mega-hit! The theme, 'around the world' was enough to excite, but in addition to it, there were many other interesting features. The charming, popular and well loved personality, Iram Mudassir was among the hostesses. Ammara Nazir, Neelum, Marium, Rukhshi, Saima, Afshan, Asifa, Fatima, Hadia and Humaira, everyone made sure, their guests are properly entertained. Whereas, the children of SOS also get the attention and the projection they deserve. The entire show is actually dedicated to them, after-all.
Many of you are aware of the fact that SOS village Multan is distinct in many different ways. It is considered to be a Star project of SOS villages at national level. It has a school, a youth house, a technical training institute and lots more. It is the only charitable organization, where children are not just raised and taken care of but a lot of emphasis is laid on educating and grooming them. Mahnaz Fareed works with an unimaginable sincerity for creating a future for these children under her care. Her efforts to equip them with best of education, provide them with best of exposure, polish and then establish them as professionals in their lives are extra ordinary.
When you look at these children, you do not find them to be ordinary. You do not even believe them to be under-privileged. They are smartly dressed, sure of themselves, brimming with confidence. They are focused, they know their direction. They remember, their school competed Beaconhouse school in English and Urdu debates and defeated them. They are not less than others, if not better, Thanks to their great leader in shape of Mahnaz, they have aims instead of dreams. They are well aware of her devotion to them. Therefore, they put their best in their studies to make her proud of themselves.
Recent results of their academic achievements just proved that. The flying colors, with which they passed their exams, needed to be celebrated. So, the SOS team and the gracious hostesses decided to dedicate September party to these children. These star students and high achievers were invited to the beautiful Lahore Chatkhara Multan branch, which was the venue of the party and were bestowed upon with honors, in shape of prizes and medals.
Rameen Anis hosted that part of the show. She is an extremely dedicated member of Mahnaz's SOS team and has always been there to support this cause. She gave a presentation about the achievements of the school and the children of SOS and invited hostesses Iram Mudassir and Ammara Nazir to accolade the students. Mrs. Beena Khawaja, Saadiya Yaqoob, Freeha Ismail and Tasbiha were also invited to give away the prizes. There were prizes for the SOS team members also.
As mentioned earlier, the venue was Lahore Chatkhara Multan branch. The SOS team member and the owner of this restaurant Hania Shahid made great efforts to incorporate the theme, around the world. Strings of small international flags endorsed the dinning tables. There was a photo booth suggesting seven wonders of the world. Props to take and pose with. Variety of international cuisine to match. Special cupcakes, made on order from 'the little cake company', with pictures of traveling spots from around the world, made out of fondant. We must say, nobody regrets, arranging a party in Lahore chatkhara Multan branch, as there is always a unique elegance, a personal touch provided by Hania Shahid.
Once again, congratulations to all the high achievers of SOS, to all the teachers and staff members of SOS school and other institutes, for the success. Wish they keep the flag of SOS high. And well done ladies, for putting together such a fabulous show.
