Sharif Trust was founded by Late Mian Mohammad Sharif, a philanthropist and an industrial conglomerate, who was blessed with an ability to run enterprises effectively. His first project was launched in the steel industry in 1937 as Sharif Group. He migrated to Lahore, Pakistan during partition of Indian Subcontinent in 1947 and had to start his business once again. The group emerged, in a short period of time, as a leading group in the steel, textile and sugar sectors of Pakistan.

In addition to his concerns for the sprouting industry in Pakistan, he had immense desire to establish and sponsor welfare projects for the under privileged class of the country. He owed the origin of this desire to an impulse which got triggered when he encountered heart ailment and experienced lack of medical expertise in the country at that time. The first significant step in this direction led to the birth of Ittefaq Hospital (1986), which presently in addition to having an adequate number of charity beds has a fairly large benevolent fund to draw upon. His vision in fact was to establish a series of such hospitals in the rural surroundings. He established Sharif Trust (1995), which received additional contributions from this family members. Main objective of this trust is to establish and maintain educational and medical institutions. The Sharif Trust is managed by a board of trustees and is chaired by Mr. Muhammad Nawaz Sharif.

Recommendations of the board are mandatory for running of the Institutions of the Trust. The contributions of Sharif Trust towards general, technical and professional medical education and health delivery system are immense and still growing to encompass the needs of our population.
