Combating Food Insecurity in Pakistan ๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿ‡ฐ - Pictures of our Recent Food Rations ๐Ÿฑ Distribution

Dear HOPE Friends,


For the past several years, HOPE has been diligently working to combat the challenges ๐Ÿง—๐Ÿพโ€โ™‚๏ธcreated by Food Insecurity๐Ÿฅ˜ in Pakistan ๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿ‡ฐ. A whopping 20% of the general population of Pakistan ๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿ‡ฐ faces hunger ๐Ÿšซ on a daily basis. This has resulted in 40 million people (out of a population of 220 million total) who are not getting enough nutrients ๐ŸŠ. In fact, Pakistan ๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿ‡ฐ has twice the rate ๐Ÿ“ˆ of malnourished people ๐Ÿค’ than other countries worldwide ๐ŸŒ.


40% of children ๐Ÿง’๐Ÿปunder the age of 5 in Pakistan ๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿ‡ฐ are stunted according to the UN World Food Program, and of those, 11% are severely malnourished ๐Ÿค’. Growth stunting due to malnourishment/undernourishment affects as many as 50% of Pakistan's children ๐Ÿง’๐Ÿป.


You may partake in this fight against hunger ๐Ÿค’with us by sponsoring a month ๐Ÿ“† of Food Rations ๐Ÿฑ for a Family of 8 for just $33. This is a Zakat-Eligible project and we are honored to report that this movement was initiated from a suggestion by one of our long-standing private supporters ๐Ÿ’•.


Our Food Rations consist of a month's supply of Rice ๐Ÿš, Wheat Flour ๐Ÿž(to make tortillas), Lentils ๐Ÿฒ, Cooking Oil ๐Ÿงˆ, Milk Powder ๐Ÿฅ›, Tea โ˜•, Sugar ๐Ÿง, Salt ๐Ÿง‚, and Biscuits ๐Ÿช - enough for a family of 8.


The pictures below are from our recent distribution in an area on the outskirts of Karachi, Pakistan ๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿ‡ฐ known by the residents there as Kachra Kundi. Sadly, as the name implies, this area is a landfill ๐Ÿ—‘๏ธ and families ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ‘ฆโ€๐Ÿ‘ฆ who live there subsist by sifting through the waste and searching for metals to recycle โ™ป๏ธ and earn a tiny income.


Many thanks ๐ŸŒน for your participation in this noble endeavor !


Warm regards,


The HOPE USA ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ ๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿ‡ฐ, HOPE UK ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง ๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿ‡ฐ, and HOPE Pakistan ๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿ‡ฐ Teams
