Who we are
The Bilqees Sarwar Foundation (BSF) is a registered welfare organization in Pakistan, which aims to provide public health and education support to the local community. We are the charitable arm of NRS International, an industry leader in manufacturing and developing relief essentials for the humanitarian, development and public health sectors, and its manufacturing facility in Pakistan, H. Sheikh Noor-ud-Din & Sons (HSNDS).
NRS International designs, manufactures and supplies cost-effective core relief items to the humanitarian and development sector. It is among the few International NGOs in Pakistan that heads four subsidiaries: NRS Relief and TANA Netting, and its newly launched brands. On the strong belief that businesses have the responsibility to their community, the Bilqees Sarwar Foundation was inaugurated. The main aim of the foundation is to alleviate suffering and build community resilience post-humanitarian crises through improving the quality and access to public health, and widening educational opportunities.
In 2005, the Sarwar family struggled to find quality healthcare for a sick family member. In that same year, a devastating earthquake shook regions of Pakistan and many families were left without basic supplies and healthcare services. Throughout the relief effort, the Sarwar’s became one of the largest donors to citizens in the region and in 2013; we expanded our efforts internationally to reach a wider scope of people.
By supporting international projects through in-kind and financial donations, we aim to build more sustainable and productive futures for vulnerable populations. Through capitalizing on NRS International’s partnerships, the collective impact of our philanthropic efforts is maximized.
