Musarat Misbah Working for rehabilitate women that are victims of acid and kerosene attacks


Musarat Misbah  spent entire life making women look beautiful, somewhere deep inside her. She is saying that I knew there was something more I was supposed to do. I knew my life was meant to have another objective. I’m not saying that beauty is trivial, but now I’ve discovered beauty with a purpose. Helping the burn victims start a new life and regain their shattered self-esteem has given me an entirely new perspective on beauty. God has been very kind to me. Launching of the Foundation is a way of thanking God for everything I have today.

Masarrat Misbah commented after receiving prestigious Presidential Award for Pride of Performance by Governor Sindh, Dr. Ishrat Ul Ebad Khan during an impressive ceremony held at the Governor House on 23rd March, Pakistan Day.
Masarrat Misbah is a woman who brought hope, who inspired many around the world to contribute to her foundation; Depilex Smile Again Foundation. The foundation was set up to help women disfigured by acid burns. It would find them a new life and help pay for expensive reconstructive surgery.
She is the inspiration for all Pakistani women who can get inspiration from her outstanding career and the on going socail work which this dedicated lady is doing for saving lives of many.

Musarrat Misbah, a beautician-turned-supposed philanthropist has been honoured with the President’s Pride of Performance Award, at a time when the government’s own agencies are investigating into her alleged embezzlement of funds Also, the principal Italian donor of her NGO, Depilex Smileagain Foundation, has stopped funding under the same allegations, demanding her of providing details of the hefty grants already sanctioned. Likewise, the Italy ambassador to Pakistan whose country was donating the lion’s share has stressed on “taking note of the charge of non-transparency” of the NGO. The scandalous performance of the NGO that has won Musarrat the Pride of Performance award, also reflects on the work of so-called local charity organisations, feeding on foreign taxpayers’ money with little deliverance. Interviews with different people disclose the work done by others has been claimed by the NGO to fetch more funds. The pictures of the victims, treated without the NGO’s assistance, have been used for funds collection. Several directors of the NGO have already resigned in protest against the malpractices, turning the organisation now a family affair as Musarrat’s close relatives are running the show.
