‘Sakina’ – My beloved daughter, is the force behind the institution of this Foundation. She was an epitome of peace just like her name and made eternal impact on the lives of people around her. She was diagnosed with pneumonia, which later developed into multiple organ failure and succumbed to the ailment at a very tender age of 3 years. I hope through the institution of this Foundation there wouldn’t be another Sakina to suffer the indifference of this ailment or for that matter any other life threatening ailments, and societal evils. This I sincerely hope would act as the contribution of me, my friends, and my family towards the eternal peace for my dear ‘Sakina’.
