The Chairman of UCI, Mufti Abdul Wahab, and his team visited Mokhi Goth Meymar to distribute food packs to some of the most vulnerable individuals inhabiting in this area. A huge total of 200 food packs were given to the residents, the majority of whom were elderly men in dreadful need of sustenance and nutrition. The men had also come on behalf of their wives, sisters, and daughters, who were not able to leave their homes due to societal stricture. However, in some cases, children were also present at the distribution, most likely there to represent their families who were not able to come. This proves that many of the children are left to manage by themselves and are in desperate need of help. After having engaged in conversation with some of the beneficiaries, Mufti Abdul Wahab and his team discovered that one food pack could aid a family for up to an entire month.  
Additionally, 125 food packs were also given to the families of Burmi colony and in contrast to Mokhi Goth, the women were the ones who came to collect the food, due to the fact that most of the women were widows, single mothers, or the male members of their families could not be present. The few males that were in attendance were all over 60 years of age.
When an interview was conducted with these individuals in Burmi Colony, it was found out that many of them could not speak proper Urdu, since they were migrants from Burma and have continued to live their lives below the poverty line where education was not an option.
The one thing that all of the individuals, whether male or female, young or old had in common was the fact that each and every one of them knew what true hunger was. Each and every one of them needed aid and kindness. They were all starved and hadn’t had a proper meal for a long time. They were the forgotten parts of society, but Mufti Abdul Wahab and his team wanted to change that. They wanted people to remember this forgotten sector and the food pack distribution was the first step in doing so.
Finally, the food pack distribution was scheduled at the most needed time of the year, when Ramadan is right around the corner and many people do not have the means to provide a sahoor or iftar meal for themselves, let alone their families. Many families who received a food pack are now prepared for Ramadan, knowing that for the next days, they do not have to worry about whether they would have a meal for tomorrow. 

Zakat is not only the third pillar of Islam, but it is the sole duty that has the power to ease the burdens of millions of people around the world. You can take this obligatory action and help to save the lives of so many civilians who are suffering. Zakat is especially necessary for people like us, who take living in the Western world for granted. We do not need to worry about our food, our homes or disease. We do not have to worry if we will have a meal the next day. Our iftaar meals consist of several delicious, home-cooked dishes when there are people around the world who have no food at all. Fatigue, illness and helplessness are rife in these communities, and living on the streets is common. For some people, fighting poverty is not even a daily struggle, they are fighting this predator every minute of their lives. You can donate zakat online today and bring peace and harmony into someone’s life – after all, this action of yours has the power to transform entire communities, eradicate poverty and reduce hunger. At Ummah Charity International we take the responsibility of handling zakat extremely seriously and our zakat policy guarantees that every penny you give towards zakat will go directly to those who need it the most. Donate zakat online this Ramadhan and help to change someone’s life. Your help is building confidence and resilience within communities. In fact, without your zakat, Ummah Charity International is able to help thousands of people each year who are struggling to survive. The action of giving zakat is powerful and has the potential to contribute towards sustainable development in many destitute communities across the globe. However, it is natural to wonder who and where your zakat is going to, so we at Ummah Charity International give you the liberty of choosing a project which you would like to donate your zakat contribution towards. Your zakat can contribute to any of our social or livelihood projects. You can empower a woman, educate a child, feed a family, build a house or mosque, provide eye treatment or a wheelchair, dig a well or install a handpump. The possibilities of where your zakat goes are endless. Your zakat can change someone’s life. Why not donate zakat online today and contribute your part towards changing the world?
