This Weekend in Lahore: Giving Back and Giving In

Ramzan began this week and has already slowed down the city, reflecting in this weekend in Lahore. No need to worry if you didn’t pay heed earlier, things ought to pick up their pace soon. This weekend, however, focus on giving back, why don’t ya?


Qissa e Parchai

The Depilex Smile Again Foundation will be raising funds for acid-attack victims this weekend, and this is one of the most worthwhile causes that you can donate to. Do attend the event and interact with the women whose lives have been transformed by donations.

P.S. Encourage others to attend as well.


Laughter Therapy

Dr Yasmin Butt will be hosting an hour long therapy session which is scientifically proven to increase dopamine levels in the body. Register to attend and take your family and friends with you. It’s a good time to laugh.

Support the Haqooq-e-Khalq Movement as they protest against the brutality that took place at Data Darbar yesterday. This attack, in the heart of Lahore, took the lives of five policemen and three civilians. 26 others were injured. Stand in their memory.

The Outsiders

What better way to ward of the mid-roza munchies than to lose yourself in a great book? The BCP Book Club gives you the perfect distraction. Featured book of the week is The Outsiders” by S.E. Hinton; this should be interesting.
