In all of my experiences in dealing with different organizations, I can say that OBAT is one of the best that I have been associated with. I have been thoroughly impressed with the efforts that they put into their planning and implementation of projects and have seen how incredibly beneficial their work has been on the ground. Their President's leadership is nothing short of exemplary and inspirational. I have been supporting OBAT's excellent work up until now and I plan on continuing to do so in the future.

OBAT HELPERS, INC. is doing phenomenal job for forgotten stranded Pakistanis (commonly known Biharis) in Bangladeshi camps. I frequent visit those camps and in 2009, I visited varrious projects of OBAT in Rangpur, Saidpur and Dhaka of Bangladesh including health clinics, micro financing centers and educational centers of camps. These works are increasing day by day and things are in progress, but due to lack of funding, OBAT is not able to expand its project. I will request each and every human being to patronize OBAT purely on humanitarian ground.
