Challenge

40% of Pakistan's population falling below the poverty line due to which children continue to face uncertainty of Covid-19, who early on faced food shortage in poor households. These kids are traumatised because of financial stocks and lay-offs with reduced earning opportunities for adults in their families that has raised food crisis and winter vulnerability among children. The 2nd wave of Covid-19 will push back marginalised kids in the poorest of the poor families living in Islamabad slums.

Solution

The 2020 emergency crisis driven by lockdowns and economic collapse has hard-pressed poor households by eroding their minimal livelihoods options, exasperating hunger, and poverty. The target slum dwellers will have food to eat and overcome malnutrition. Likewise; winterized clothes will help children to survive harsh winter, and with a fed stomach there will be reduced chances of getting sick for children, thus social well-being will ensure three meals a day for the poor kids and families.

Long-Term Impact

The project will provide sustenance needs of staple food items that will ensure 3 meals a day of a family, as we reach up to 500 households. Crack a Smile would contribute in promoting food intake especially for malnourished children, living in the slums of Islamabad. We aim to restore smile on the faces of impoverished children through a ray of hope ensuring food security and winterised essentials to enhance the well-being of children during clod chill of winter for Islamabad and Lahore.
