Starting from 2010, HEART has been helping people affected by various disasters to grapple with the toughest hardships survive — and then thrive. That’s the heart of our approach: We try helping communities turn crisis into opportunity.
HEART has demonstrated timeliness and the ability to adapt quickly to changing realities.
2010: The motivation for forming an organisation was triggered in July 2010 at a time when nearly the entire nation of Pakistan was swept away with heavy floods. The devastating situation created worst human crises all over the country, destroying houses, communication and other civil infrastructure, leaving millions without food, shelter and medical facilities. The magnitude of destruction was enormous and relief was beyond the sources of the individuals or government. The international help was not sufficient and due to destroyed communication facilities, reaching to the stranded victims was a major challenge all over. Generous people all over the world wanted to raise funds and help those devastated by the catastrophe.
This is when HEART was formed and registered by a group of volunteers in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada. Fund raising events were immediately arranged and the response was very encouraging, thus raising hope and making the members of HEART more confident in pursing their goals.
The founding members of HEART also got involved in organizing fundraising events for internally displaced persons (IDP’s) of Swat region in Pakistan. Millions of people were forced out of their homes due to insurgency in the area, for safety reasons, having nowhere to go. Families with children, expecting mothers, fragile seniors and the ailing had to travel on foot for more than a 100 KM to find safe shelters, food and medical services. People in Mardan, Sawabi and other parts of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa opened their hearts and homes to accommodate 70% of the IDP’s in their homes on self-help basis. Soon after, help from UNO, International Aid Agencies, Charities and other communities followed for these IDPs who were victims of the conflict in their own land for no fault of theirs. HEART members were at the forefront then, offering their time and resources, organizing fund raising in support of these IDPs. These were some of the events that motivated HEART members to pursue the organisation’s objectives with more zeal and enthusiasm thus strengthening the foundation of HEART.
