An epitome of dedication and selflessness, Ms Bilquis Palwala left us to embrace the afterlife on the morning of 20th December 2018. Ms Bilquis had been with the Dawood Foundation since 1976, serving on multiple projects before joining DPS at its inception 1983. A teacher, mentor, guide and founder of evening school (for under privileged students) was a support to several generations of DPS, Ms Bilquis was a beautiful soul who embraced all those who ever had the privilege of knowing her. It is with deep sorrow that we bow our heads together today to pray for her departed soul. May she be blessed with the highest ranks in Heaven.
