Small acts of kindness can go a long way! ‘Little gestures was a team of almost 60 volunteers...who were on board within a weeks time of reaching out to people. The aim was to make the dark and dingy ward a better and a lively place for the patients to recover.
We were a team of Architects, Interior designers, students, doctors, CA s... etc...everyone who believed that art matters and they matter...
We worked under the management of Dr. Sajida Qureshi, Professor of Surgery, Head of Surgical Ward V, at Civil Hospital, Karachi in the respective ward. We had 13 walls and 3days. Nelson Paints was on board with us, sponsoring the paints for us. So we all got together to see some smiles on the faces of those who needed us 🙈 ‘ - Haya Qadri (AR 2017)
Kudos to the team of Little Gestures and to Haya for spear heading this vision.
Today, many celebrate father’s day. Whilst I am incredibly lucky to have an awesome Papa bar, let’s face it, the little annoying habits in which every parent specialises, and acknowledge the special gesture, personally I don’t believe in big celebrations for the recognition. Having such a practice can create unnecessary social pressure on parents or children who can’t or, for whatever reasons, don’t wish to celebrate it and the biggest beneficiaries are the merchandisers.
I see so little of my parents because I have lived so far away for so long that every time I see them it is precious and every day that I do can easily be father’s or mother’s day.
I also believe that any gesture big or small can be equally meaningful as long as it comes from the ❤️. My way is to do the little things for the Papa, like preparing his favourite food for the barbecue - CORN! 🌽🌽🌽
The little things make the biggest difference 💖🌈💖 receiving a postcard from a very special and beautiful yogini @jodiejeacock1 @theretreatsisters filled with love, magic and rainbows 🌈 puts the greatest smile on my face 😃
Get involved to sprinkle a little happiness into the universe....send a postcard, text or go all out and get that pen and paper out to write a note. A small gesture can empower anyone 💖🌈💖 Happy weekend beautiful souls ✨

One of our most recent projects, mural paintings on the walls of civil hospital, Karachi. We tried our best to convert the sick environment of the hospital into a healthy one for the patients. Here are some of our artworks.
