350 Food Packs were distributed this Ramadan thanks to you. From your donations, 100 beneficiary families were delivered food packs in drought-stricken remote Thar villages. The remaining 250 were distributed in disadvantaged areas of Landhi and Korangi.
The beneficiary families were identified by ex-DC Korangi, Ms Quratul Ain and AC Garden Mr Sarah Jawed, who helped us connect with the Union Councillors to find 10 needy from their respective Union Councillors. Having compiled data on the needy families based on the priority given to widow-headed families, the elderly and the handicapped.
Sadly, we found the need in Korangi area was overwhelming. We went there with 50 food packs as per our beneficiary list one day only to find hundreds of needy families there requiring food. We returned to Korangi the following day with 100 more along with 50 in Malir and remaining 50 in the Garden area.
We hope to investigate deeper within the recipient family database to find any out of school children, orphan or otherwise. I hope to return in a couple of weeks Insha’Allah and would develop a comprehensive Orphan Sponsorship Program with the aim to enrol all out of school children in school Insha’Allah to put their lives back on the right track.
