At once where stories about politicians and famous people command the news cycle and our online life channels, a local heroes series who don’t really appreciate as a significant part of the spotlight is very welcome.
Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy’s SOC Films have appeared their most recent venture Stories for Our Children with a scene about philanthropist Abdul Sattar Edhi, known far and wide for his expansive armada of ambulances.
The episodes around his modest beginnings, the early obstacles he confronted and how he presumed that his ambulance was “more Muslim” than a great many people.
Stories for Our Children will put the focus on Pakistanis who have championed decent variety, consideration, resilience and love for the duration of their lives and works. The chain contains three more episodes that will incorporate the story of Aitzaz Hasan, the 15-year-old who sacrificed his life to impede a suicide assault on his school in Hangu, KP and that of Kulsum, a youthful Hazara young lady in the town of Khalsabad, Punjab.
The following episodes turns out Monday.
