An Evening with the Rescued - Depilex Smile Again Foundation Animal Relief Benefit



Many times we come across such people in life that leave us awestruck and inspired.  Being a blogger, one has to attend many events related to fashion and beauty, but rare does arise the opportunity to attend  an event  that presents you the picture of real beauty of the people. Recently I have been lucky enough to attend a Collaborative event between Depilex Smile Again Foundation and Dr. Hamid Named DSF Animal Relief Benefit.
The basic idea behind the event was bringing the rescued souls by two amazing people together and give them a quality time to spend together. Okay before I launch into how amazing everything was, lets just get an over view of the event and then back to my personal thoughts (which are inevitable, of course)

The Event:

On 30th June, 2016 a Collaborative Aftaar was held by renowned philanthropist Masarrat Misbah and Dr. Hamid, who is a well-known veterinary doctor mainly known for his relief work done for Rescued animals.  As soon as I got the invitation, I was super  excited.  Over the year I have had a couple of interactions with Masarrat Misbah, and every time that lady has left me spell bound. Being a die hard Masarat ma'am's fan,  a strong supporter of the Depilex Smile Again Foundation and of course an avid animal lover, this evening was something I wouldn't miss in million years
The outdoor set up in none other than the beautiful Avari Hotel, Lahore was just perfect for the evening.

 Among the guests were people from Media,  friends and family but  it would not  be wrong to say that the guests of honor were the Acid victims who were treated at the Depilex Smile Again Foundation and also the Rescued animals by Dr. Hamid.
While talking to the gathering, Ma'am Masarat in all her grace was looking nothing less than a proud mother when she talked about the Acid Victims who were treated at the DSF. She explained how each of the victims was treated and taken care  of at the foundation. The reconstructive surgery of the acid victims is no  joke because sometimes the person needs up to 40 surgeries during the process. The moment of pride was when she told the gathering how many of the victim are now happily married, are bread earners for their families, some are lawyers and some are getting higher education. 

Explaining the purpose of the event, she told everyone that how every living being, be it a human or an animal deserves love for this the only language that everyone understands. Purpose of bringing together the rescued of two different foundations was nothing less than spectacular.  The acid victims were all smiles and full of joy while spending time with those dogs and parrots and cats, who responded back with equal fervor.   
When Dr. Hamid took the dais,  he explained how working with rescued animals brings joy and satisfaction in one's life because there is nothing more beautiful than saving a soul. Expressing his joy over the collaboration with Depilex Smile Again Foundation and Masarrat Misbah, he said that bringing together acid victims and these animals is a perfect idea to show everyone that how love heals the deepest of the scars.  


A little message was given by Dr. Moazam Tarrar, the reconstructive surgeon working with DSF over the span of years. Speaking from his experience, he said that after the surgery is done our main concern is the rehabilitation of the patients. Being an unfortunate society were social services are almost next to none, DSF stands tall like a Beacon of Hope for these acid victims. DSF being the only foundation working in Pakistan for the relief and rehabilitation of Acid Attack victims irrespective of caste, color and creed.


Listening to all these amazing people, I can say that some where there is something good happening around us. One thing that which is evident is that we lack a lot in promoting such practices among us. These firms and foundations need our help and support in every possible way, be it financial, emotional or moral. Being a blogger, I feel responsible to spread out the world, make it reach to the masses, let them know that there is still hope.
