Since 2014 , over 20,000 people have benefited through cooked meal project and helped to some of the poorest families in across Pakistan.Support our work to eradicate hunger and tackle malnutrition through Food programme
Addressing the problem of food shortage has always been one of our top priorities, and our collective food projects have helped more than 38,120 individuals. Whether this has been through freshly-cooked meals, monthly food packages or the delivery of food in emergency relief situations, the people who we help come from the forgotten sectors of rural Pakistan. The areas which we work in have been hit by poverty like no other, and the residents have seen unspeakable traumas throughout their lifetimes.
Our food projects have been executed in the following areas of Pakistan:
Gadap Town, Kalapul, Jamhoria Colony, Ibrahim Hyderi, Burmi Colony, Surjani Town, Mangopir, Burma, Mirpur and many more.
THE IMPORTANCE OF FOOD
Food is a necessity we cannot live without, yet there are more than 795 million people around the world who are currently experiencing deadly hunger. Unable to feed themselves, the individuals who we help are part of these rising statistics, and these numbers will only continue to increase if we do not step up. Launching our food-related campaigns is part of our effort to ease the suffering of people across the globe, but we cannot achieve anything without you.

MR NAEEM ULLAH
“To me and my family of six members, I am a daily wage worker. My work had been stopped due to coronavirus and lockdown. For the last few months, we'd only been having one minimal meal a day and although I could bear the hunger, my heart broke seeing my children struggle to endure the endless starvation.
We slept every night, empty stomachs, fearing the worst. Even my wife, who had overworked trying to ease our situation, was now beginning to show severe signs of malnutrition. A plate of fresh meat and hot meals was not less than a blessing for me and especially for my children, considering my current living conditions… I cannot express how grateful I am to the Ummah Charity International’s team for providing me and my family with this fresh meal and meat which my children can have for 4 consecutive days, saving my children from the burden of hunger. I pray that they are able to help others because there are people like me, who are also struggling to provide for their families in the face of no food resources. Once Again, I thank Mufti Abdul Wahab, for helping our entire vulnerable community.
