The Brothers of Charity have had a presence in Pakistan since 1990 with the support of the Sisters of Charity, who had already been there for years. Following the formation and training of local candidates, they founded the Canon Triest Middle School for poor children in Lahore. Later on, a second school was established in Youhanabad, another poor neighbourhood of Lahore. They also created a section for the education of children with disabilities. Within the walls of the convent, the brothers look after chronic mental patients. In Gujarat, the brothers serve in a boarding school for boys.
