Convert Love Into Life


http://www.mahak-charity.org/english/main.php

About two decades ago a mother who had experienced having a child with cancer and had witnessed first hand the difficulties faced by her child, pledged to set up a center that would act as a refuge for children and their families in a similar situation.

The Society to Support Children Suffering from Cancer, known as MAHAK, began its activities in 1991 as a non governmental, non-profit organization. In less than two decades, with the backing of public trust and support and with the application of the latest scientific and medical techniques, MAHAK has reached an inspiring level of support of children with cancer, achieving its goal of the reduction of the mortality rate, as well as a continuous increase in the number of completed treatment cases.

 

MAHAK’s statistics shows the completion of treatment of 35% of children in the year 2008. During a 17 year period the organization has managed to support over 13000 children.

As for the organizational standards, a major achievement of MAHAK was gaining the Société Generale de Surveillance (SGS) Verified Certificate of NGO Benchmarking in November 2007. The Society was the first non-governmental organization in the Middle East to do so. The award is only given to NGOs which meet the highest international standards in the nine areas of: Board of Trustees, Strategies, Honest Management, Communications, Human Resources, Allocation and Control of the Financial Resources, Executive operations, Operational Results and Continuity of Improvement.

“It is one of the most beautiful compensations of life, that no man can sincerely try to help another without helping himself.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson

“Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier. Be the living expression of God’s kindness: kindness in your face, kindness in your eyes, kindness in your smile.”
Mother Teresa

“Generosity is to help a people without their request, and if you help them after their request, then it is either out of self-respect or to avoid rebuke.”
Imam Ali
