Pakistan Legal Aid Support Network

Sun, January 29, 2017

Considering its national responsibility, #PJN is forming the network of pobono lawyers in #Pakistan who are willing to support deserving people on voluntary basis.

PJN is looking for lawyers who are voluntarily willing to support poor and marginalized people who might otherwise be unable to obtain legal aid or assistance for protecting their legal rights or interests across Pakistan. All these lawyers will become part of #PakistanLegalAidSupportNetwork and their list will be available on PJN website. #PJNSecretariat will voluntarily manage this network and integrate it with all the human rights bodies in Pakistan.

"This initiative is inspired from great #AbdulSattarEidhi (May Allah give him best place in heaven) social welfare program. What started as one man operating from a single room in Karachi is now has over 300 centers across the country, in big cities, small towns and remote rural areas, providing medical aid, family planning and emergency assistance."

Please do share in your respective circles. As a lawyer, we have a responsibility of ensuring #AccesstoJusticeforAll.
