We have successfully served more 762 hot meals and distributed more than 5000 food packs which have succeeded in eradicating hunger and ending malnutrition among hundreds of families in distraught districts.
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 ALI IQBAL
“To me and my family of six members, a food pack containing the basic food necessities was nothing short of a luxury, considering my current living conditions. 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 at seeing my children struggling to endure the endless starvation as they went to sleep with empty stomachs.
Even my wife, who had become overworked as she tried to find us food, was beginning to show severe signs of malnutrition. As the sole paternal influence of my household of five children, I cannot express how grateful I am to the Ummah Charity International’s team for providing me and my family with this luxury, saving my children from the burden of having to go beg on the streets, and 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.”
