Uol Relief Trust is working in a wide range of society, but our basic purpose and goal is to provide emergency relief to the effected people who suffers in natural or manmade disaster. The working of Uol Relief Trust never ends here, it also take follow up from the community where relief activities done by the volunteers of the trust, so the quality of life can be increased.
This vision is achieved by the multi targeted projects designed for community welfare as like shelter, medical care and education etc. And practical working to promote the welfare approach leads us positively to bring social & cultural change and build a trust level, which strengthen us to work longer for sustainable growth and improvement in the life of needy people.
In the times of crisis whether it is man-made or natural, most important thing is to provide an emergency relief. This might be in shape of emergency shelter, access, clothes or other basic necessities of life. And for this purpose UOL Relief initiated a club named as “Search and Rescue Club” which is fully equipped with knowledge and expertise of disaster management in the bad times. And also UOL relief working over a decade to assessing in a very methodical manner the needs of the areas, organizing the efforts and then delivering the services to the doorstep in a respectful manner as per the norms of the local area.
UOL Relief taps in to the expertise of the University of Lahore’s University College of Medicine & Dentistry (UCMD) to deliver the proper Medical care to people in dire needs. Since 2005 Earthquake UOL Relief took care of over 5000 people, mostly children with removal of the rods from their limbs being put in to fix their fractures during the Earthquake. After the Emergency Relief efforts ended in the city, thousands of these young people were left with prospect of great disability since the rods started to impede in their growth.
Mostly in Earthquakes and Floods affected people automatically lose access to the very basic needs of life i.e Food & shelter etc. Many of these affected populations do not have any healthy nutrition access. There are number of communities who never tasted rice in their life and only rely on watered down goat milk with some hard corn bread. UOL Relief Trust provide them healthy food with monthly “Rashan Packs” especially in remote areas.
Injured, widowed and orphaned people, physically and mentally disturb children during calamities left at the perils of the society. UOL Relief Trust is determined in its mission to provide services to them. Many families and individuals identified during various projects in the area and then provided Support under a project plan to live in a self-sustaining mode.

Some of our projects include Water supply (irrigation and drinking), education support (tent schools, community schools, outreach), health care (camps, units), housing (emergency shelter, family units, permanent houses, earthquake resistant housing) and infrastructure (bridge construction, water channels).
