“Life started its operations in year 2001 with establishment of a support program of 15 health care centres in Rawalpindi District. Several small and large scale projects were completed during 2004-08 in Balochistan, Punjab and AJK. As organization’s top management hailed from the province of Balochistan, therefore majority of our activities have been targeted on rural areas of this largely under-developed province.

Head office is situated at Islamabad. Furthermore, in its two branch offices at Lahore and Quetta, branch heads are appointed for local operations.
