the campus and teaching staff. They presented a generous check on behalf of the deaf students that will help to sponsor their school education via the Zakat and Ushr Department. Mr. Khuhro said, “I am truly impressed with the wonderful work being done by Deaf Reach Schools in providing quality education for needy deaf children, not only here in Karachi, but in their 5 schools across Sindh.
