I have donated time and money to House of Charity since 1998. Its founder, Hashmat Effendi is one remarkable woman I am blessed to know. I am proud to be associated with her mission which is delivered with total dedication and selflessness.

I have supported this charity generously for many years and regularly donate substantial funds to it generally and for specific projects. I feel my charity dollars are extremely well utilized for the betterment of mankind in need in USA and overseas.

Great nonprofit doing excellent work on a shoestring budget! I have been donating to House of Charity for many years and have observed them at close range. In my estimation they leverage their dollar intake 1:15 which is excellent. They provide surgical services to the indigent, run a Healing Home for convalescing children and provide youth services - all at no cost to the beneficiaries.

I made a donation to this non profit organization. I wish I would have waited until I knew more about them. The Founder and Excutive Director, Hashmat Effandi, is a liar and a theift. I thought she helped local children. The fact is she only helps children from Packistain. I will not be making anymore kind donations. I found this site and decided to write this review in hopes of others to read about her and her orginization. Houston has several "real" local charities and I will do my research prior to make a donation!!!!!

I read House of Charity Children's story on CNN. I was very moved and touched. They are doing great work along with Shriner's Hospital in Galveston. I drove to visit their office and the Healing Home in Houston Texas.

I would avoid this group. I raised $ for them to fund surgical missions and I have no idea what they did with with it. BAD NEWS
