Provide Monthly Food Packs

Since 2014, UCI has provided over 12,700 monthly food packs to underprivileged families in areas across Pakistan.

Support our work to eradicate hunger and tackle malnutrition through Food programme

Why Do We Distribute Monthly Food Packs?

At UCI, we understand that providing families with though one-time meals can be beneficial, it is better for the overall wellbeing of underprivileged families if they have a steady supply of food for an extended period of time. Through our monthly food pack project, we ensure that tens of families are given food provisions every month, so that they can spend their money and time in things that may be more urgent like getting better livelihood prospects or funding their children’s education. So far, our monthly food packs have benefitted over 100,00 individuals, most of whom are people who we based in the most underserved sectors of rural and urban 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.

Why Are We Invested in Providing 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.

Why Your Donation Matters

Your donation towards our Cooked Food project has had the following impact on the beneficiaries: No longer having to beg for food, children are free to achieve their academic goals; health and sanitation improves; malnutrition and starvation decreases in vulnerable communities; families are encouraged to eat meals with one another, and positive-thinking and optimism are instilled in families.

Maqsood Expresses Gratitude Towards UCI:

Maqsood is a labourer residing in Bawal Goth with his children and his unwell mother. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, his work and thus his wages had been paused, leaving his family unable to eat adequately and facing the distressing effects of malnutrition. With your donations, you gave his family enough food to allow them to avoid starvation for a whole month.

“For the last few months, we only been having a meal a day and although I could bear the hunger, my heart broke seeing my children struggle through starvation.”

This food pack is a blessing for me in this tough time… I cannot express how grateful I am to the Ummah Charity International’s team for providing me and my family with the food provisions that will last us for an entire month, saving my children from the burden of hunger. I am thankful to everyone who is associated with this initiative, especially to Mufti Abdul Wahab who is generous enough to be helping my family at this time.”

Note: You can feed a family by setting up a standing order which would last them an entire month.
