The combination of third wave covid and Ramadan has made for more hungry families than ever. We have huge waiting lists, particularly among the fishery families.
Fatima has sent us a plea on behalf of fishery families and the situation seems very dire.
We've now distributed almost 5500 food rations since we started this project initiative. The waitlist seems never ending, buy we are making a difference, thanks to your help.
These families have no other form of sustenance and we cannot imagine how hopeless their lives seem, in the face of hunger. Your generosity it's about so much more than food; it's about mental health, reduction in domestic violence and giving hope.
It's Christmas time and many families are struggling for food. We have now given 4150 food rations out of our goal of 5000. The gratitude is unbelievable, but what's most important is with food in their bellies, more recipients are finding strength to hunt for new jobs and opportunities. Junaid (name changed) has been interviewing for a guardsman and he was strong enough to make the journey of 3 different bus rides for the interview.
Meet Eliza (name changed) who received good rations in March. She is saying that her husband lost his job due to Corona, she usee to work in a parlour which closed down, she has 2 sons, one has a bone disease but she has no money for his treatment, and now they are unable to pay rent, landlord asking them to vacate- with Christmas coming they want support!
Donate to this important cause. Feed Eliza. Feed others. Make a difference today.
The LADIESFUND 3500 Families Rations Drive #LF3500 continues as we strive to feed 3500 families. My heart just breaks when I hear each of the stories of some of these women. Maids who cant get work due to COVID making families not want to hire someone who comes by bus. Rape survivors whose eyes well with gratitude for rations as they put their lives back together. Transgenders who were refused government rations. Fishery families who are struggle to survive. Thank you to each and every one of our donors. Thank you to each LADIESFUND Award winner - all iconic Pakistani women like Yasmeen Lari, Sheema Kermani, Shabina Mustafa, Angie Marshall, Anisa Rashid Khan, etc., who have handed and continue to personally hand out boxes.
The need is so much greater than we could have realized when we started. Your funds are not only making a difference, but giving hope and sustenance to those so much less fortunate than us. Thank you!
