We envision a society where all people with disability get preferential status in access to due health care, education, food, shelter and employment opportunity to live integrated and dignified life.
The bedrock of our mission is to work for the abandoned children with physical and intellectual disability, children with non-disability, marginalized and vulnerable people who have been refused by the society and from their families.
We keep our “children” at the heart of all that we do. We respect and value each other. We utilize all our resources efficiently. We strive for excellence whatever we do. We work together to enhance our reputation.
Sr. Gertrude Lemmens
Dar ul Sukun originated as a home for the abandoned children with disabilities. It was founded on 17th February 1969 by a Dutch nun, Sr. Gertrude Lemmens who came to Pakistan as a visitor in her full youth. She was so much touched by the pathetic condition of children with disabilities, who were found on street corners and rescued from the garbage dump in city. In Pakistan, she devoted her life for the care of such children, which were brought in by social workers, police and relatives. Her selfless love and affection turned it into a glaring reality, and a philanthropic
organization Dar ul Sukun came into being.
