Feed the Hungry

Our attempts to ease the hunger of underprivileged communities has been overwhelmingly successful. Since our inception, we’ve fed over 20,000 people from poverty-stricken communities in Pakistan, and we can’t thank you enough for making this possible..

According to the International Food Policy Research Institute, one amongst 5 people in Pakistan is malnourished. For this reason, UCI works on several food-oriented appeals, and is dedicated to combatting food shortages in underdeveloped countries. Our ‘Feed the Hungry’ appeal targets the poorest families in the communities we operate in, giving them ready-to-eat food that they desperately need.
This appeal uses your donations in several ways. We use it to fund our emergency responses to natural disasters, like the Monsoon floods where we distributed 600 cooked food packs for example. But we also use it to aid our more regular monthly food distributions, like our Ramadan and Qurbani appeals, for instance. There are a range of ways your donation could be used to ease hunger in developing countries.

Battling Food Insecurity

According to National Nutrition Survey Pakistan, almost 40% of Pakistan’s population is food insecure, this essentially means that over one third of the population does not know where their next meal will come from or how they will afford it. Donating to UCI, you would be ensuring that thousands of such food-insecure individuals are receiving of a fulfilling meal and the satisfaction that comes with it. The more intangible benefit of this initiative is that these impoverished communities are reminded of that they are valuable members of community are not forgotten.

Your Call to Action

We have 3 options for you to choose from. To ease the hunger of 300 people you can donate £300, and to do the same for 500 people, you can donate £500. This equates to just £1 per meal. Regardless of the choice you make, you will make an enormous different to the lives of a community, and they will be so grateful.

Alternatively, you can set up a standing order to feed a family for an entire month. Your donation will ensure they do not go hungry, removing the pain and anxiety that comes from not knowing where their next meal will come from.

Qassim’s Mother Gives Thanks

Note: You can feed a family by setting up a standing order which would last them an entire month.
“We are a family of 11, this lockdown has been very hard on us, there have been days we had to go without any food. My son Qassim is the sole earner in the family, I know it gets difficult to carry the burden of feeding a large family, I feel for him. In such difficult times, when UCI provided free meals to me and my family, I just felt overwhelmed with gratitude, it may seem like a small thing to some people, but for families like mine, this help means that someone cares, that we’re not forgotten by society. I just want to thank anyone who contributed towards this project, you save people like me from hopelessness.”
