Kashmir Orphan Relief Trust (KORT) held a fundraising dinner at the Maddison, Bradford on Thursday 27th June, 2024 for their 500 bed hospital project in Mirpur, Azad Kashmir.

The event was attended by Baroness Sayeda Warsi, the local businessmen and the general public.

After Peterborough and Leeds events earlier this week, this event proved a huge success and highlighted how much faith and trust KORT has built in the hearts and minds of the Kashmiri and Pakistani community in Bradford – the birthplace of its founder and chairman Chaudhry Mohammed Akhtar.

The credibility of KORT has been built on the successful delivery of all their life changing projects since its inception after the earthquake in 2005, notably the two flagship educational and residential complexes in Mirpur, Azad Kashmir, and in Swabi, KPK.

The contribution and generosity towards charitable causes by the Bradfordians is well known and they did not disappoint this time either.

£750,000 was raised with significant contribution from all who attended, whether they were young or old, male or female, businesses or dignitaries alike.

The donations made were contributions towards the construction cost with the overall cost estimated to be approximately £32m.

This much needed and free healthcare facility is an essential lifeline for the poor and needy, who don’t normally get such access to full medical treatment.

Further fundraising events are planned in Oldham, Derby, Luton, Birmingham, Slough and Dewsbury over the course of next couple of weeks.
