Summary

Summary: 40% of children under the age of 5 in Pakistan are stunted according to the UN World Food Program, and of those, 11% are severely malnourished. Similarly, 20% of the general population faces hunger on a daily basis. This project aims to fight hunger and malnutrition across Pakistan by providing monthly Food Rations to families living below the poverty line. This is a Zakat-Eligible project.

Challenge

Challenge: Due to poverty rates of 25 to 40%, recurring natural disasters, and political and economic volatility, much of Pakistan's population struggles to meet basic needs such as food security. This has resulted in 40 million people (out of 220 million total) who are not getting enough nutrients. In fact, Pakistan has twice the rate of malnourished people than other countries worldwide. Growth stunting due to malnourishment/undernourishment affects as many as 50% of Pakistan's children.

Solution

Solution: HOPE USA is attempting to tackle this problem head-on by delivering monthly food rations to families living below the poverty line in Pakistan. Our Food Rations consist of a month's supply of Rice, Wheat Flour (to make tortillas), Lentils, Cooking Oil, Milk Powder, Tea, Sugar, Salt, and Biscuits - enough for a family of 8. You may partake in this fight against hunger by sponsoring a month of Food Rations for a Family of 8 for just $33. Any amount is welcome!

Long-Term Impact

Long-Term Impact HOPE is aiming to tackle poverty from all angles: Healthcare, Education, Vocational Training, Clean Water, and Disaster Relief. We believe that citizens can break free from the cycle of poverty through adequate intervention. By tackling the crisis of food insecurity at a grassroots level, we are reducing malnourishment in the general population, and especially children, which will then lead to better health outcomes for the most vulnerable fragments of society in Pakistan.
