About Us

Our Story

Empathy for Life Integrated Development Association (ELIDA) was first established by the initiation and reputation of Women friends of volunteers (the founding members of the association) who could not get the heart to pass over the timely multi-dimensional psychosocial, economical and health related problems of needy community members including women, youth and children under difficult circumstances. In November 2008, the organization has been registered as a local NGO at the Federal Ministry of Justice/Office of NGOs Registration and re-registered on December 2009 by the newly established MOJ/Charities and Societies Agency with a registration & license certificate number of 1143.
