A dream came true!

Major General Asfand Yar Patodi, General Officer Commanding presenting souvenir to Master Basit

Master Basit,a 15 year old young boy made the history by becoming a proud soldier of Pakistan Army for one day.The child is Thelessamia patient and it was his utmost desire to serve in the Pakistan Army.
He wrote a letter to Chief of Army Staff General Ashfaq Pervez Kiyani through an NGO "Make a wish Foundation". 
Make a wish foundation

Make a wish foundation is an NGO bringing joy,pleasure and happiness to the children with life-threatening medical conditions by granting them their one biggest desire across Pakistan.The NGO is working as a HOPE for such children and their families.

In response to the child's letter,Keen personal interest was shown by the Chief of Army and the directions were given to fulfill the child's greatest desire.

Master Basit spent a full day in Pakistan Army unit on the 63th Independence day of the mother land.
Despite being extremely ill and fragile he put on the uniform and his chest was swollen with pride and honor.Moreover he reported with full patriotic spirits to Punjab Regiment of Malir Cantonment Karachi.He spent his time with officers of his unit where he was warm heartedly welcomed by the Pakistan Army.

We appreciate Pakistan Army and the Chief of Army staff for fulfilling the child's biggest desire.It is an open request from  every one who reads this piece of news to kindly inform every such child and his family about the particular NGO,so that many other children can see their dream coming true.The NGO'S official website can be accessed here .For donations and Zakats click here.
