FRESH LUNCH BOX MEALS TO 77 CHILDREN

On Eid-ul-Azha(Islamic Holiday), Muslims sacrifice animals and their ultimate purpose to share meat with poors but in reality, mostly poor families never receive the sacrificed animal meat.

One day before Eid, Muwakhat foundation arranged 150 barbeque lunch boxes and distributed them to 23 families.

When children opened the boxes and saw meat, it brought happiness on their faces and our volunteers photographed them.

 

DISTRIBUTION OF FLOUR BAG

Muwakhat Foundation distributed flour bags weighing 20 kg to 23 homeless families a day before of Eid (Islamic Holiday) to save them from starvation. Selected homeless families did not have enough food to feed their children due to non-availability of work during covid-19 pandemic.
