VISAKHAPATNAM: After losing their brother to Covid-19, Abdul Ahad Ashraf and Abdul Muneer Mushhad vowed to keep his spirit alive by serving the poor in every way possible.

“Society always helps us directly or indirectly to achieve our goals in life. It shapes us to be a better person and stays with us throughout our journeys. So, after my retirement, I have decided to give back to society to the best of my ability and also to carry forward the legacy of my late brother Abdul Raqueeb, a lawyer and social activist,” said ASK Foundation Chairman, Ashraf.

Founded in 2020 and named after their parents, Abdul Sattar and Khairunnisa, ASK operates without any donations. While Ashraf (60) is a retired BSNL employee, his 56-year-old brother, Mushhad, is head of investor relations at LIC.

Recently, a child welfare community in Telangana approached them asking for financial assistance for the education of an orphan girl. “These are the kind of calls we look forward to. Regardless of caste, creed, religion and region, we want to serve children in need,” Ashraf added.

The Foundation helps financially weak students and school dropouts to continue their education, provide medical aid to the poor, set up shelters and help the oppressed, especially those living below the poverty line (BPL). They also help the poor create small units to improve their livelihoods and expand free legal aid.

“Our main priority is to provide quality education to children from disadvantaged backgrounds. We do not sponsor their tuition. Instead, we take free classes every day at our office for these children. A retired B.Ed teacher teaches the children,” said Foundation Secretary Mushhad.

ASK even runs legal services awareness programs for over 4,000 people in conjunction with the District Legal Services Authority. The foundation offers free medical services every Saturday from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. depending on availability and needs. “Professional doctors from all over the city organize medical camps. We do not compromise on the quality of our services. Whatever service we provide, we make sure it helps the poor,” Mushhad said.

Every Monday, campaigns offering free legal services are conducted from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., while career counseling for students is held from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. The brothers firmly believe that everything they are blessed with has a purpose and their goal is to share at least a small amount of what they have to maintain the spirit of humanity.
