South Punjab is such a part of Pakistan which has 5000 years rich historical background. The region of Bahawalpur having its own historical importance was well developed in every way just in recent past. Now, suffering from deprivation and poverty due to wrong policies, corruption and natural disasters in past decades, majority of people spend their lives below poverty line and are negatively impacted in various spheres of life.
By assessing the situation some citizens of Bahawalpur joined hands and took the initiative in January 2004, by the name of PEHEL Organization. It is a welfare and progressive organization which works through self-help to participate in community development by promoting healthy approaches in the society. .
On 27th January 2005 it was registered under Social Welfare Agencies Ordinance 1961. We are continuously improving its performance so that cooperation between public and administrative departments can be achieved. PEHEL Organization is progressively achieving the objectives on which it was founded.
PEHEL Organization envisions a culture and environment sensitive society where the rights of every individual are safeguarded.
