Dear HOPE Friends,
🥘 This week, HOPE USA's Door-to-Door Iftar project reached an area known by the residents who live there as "Kachra Kundi."
As the name suggests in Urdu, Kachra Kundi is a landfill area about an hour away from Karachi, Pakistan where a community of 1,000 families scrape together a living by digging through the garbage for food and finding things to recycle which they can then turn into a small income.
In a Needs Assessment Survey conducted by HOPE Pakistan, we learned that the most needy family in Kachra Kundi was subsisting on an income of $20/month for a family of 9. This translates to $.07 per person per day.
HOPE's Needs Assessment Study gave rise to our highly successful, donor-initiated Grocery Rations Project whereby the HOPE Team delivers monthly food rations to 21 families in various poor locales for the past four years.
You can support those in Kachra Kundi or other underserved urban slum areas in Pakistan by the following:
