ISLAMABAD, May 31 (Gwadar Pro) - The Islamabad China-Pakistan Youth One Heart Step and Cure Home (ICOSH) was officially inaugurated in Islamabad on May 28 with joint efforts from the Beijing-based charity One Heart Sphere Charity Foundation (BOHS), Islamabad-based volunteer organization China-Pakistan Youth Exchange Community (CPYEC), and Pakistani non-governmental organization (NGO) Step and Cure.
