Meals for 1850 Young Students in Pakistan

Meals for 1850 Young Students in Pakistan

Poverty is one of the biggest issues in Pakistan where people are suffering from countless difficulties.

 

In fact, the poor people of our country are never asked about their wellbeing and miserable conditions.

 

They are deprived of their fundamental necessities of the life. People who are rich should help these underprivileged people to at least get better education and increase the prospects of a brighter future.

 

Pakistan’s growth continues to accelerate but macroeconomic imbalances are widening. Macroeconomic stability is a major concern for the near-term economic outlook. Pakistan’s GDP growth increased by 0.8 percentage points over the previous year to reach 5.3 percent in FY17. Major impetus came from improved performance of services and agriculture sector. Industrial sector also saw some recovery. Low interest rate environment contributed to the growth in private sector credit, which supported businesses. On the demand side, consumption made up almost 92 percent of GDP, and contributed nearly eight percentage points towards GDP growth at market prices. Average headline inflation for Jul-Feb FY18 remained 3.8 percent compared to 3.9 percent in Jul-Feb FY17, well below the target of 6 percent for FY18..

The projected poverty rate continued to decline. Poverty at the $1.90 international poverty line is estimated at 4.9 percent in FY18, down from 6.1 in FY13 when latest actual figures are available. Over the same period, a 12 percent reduction in poverty is also projected for the $3.2 poverty line, while a lower improvement (4 percent) is projected at the $5.5 poverty line.

Based on the above facts, our underprivileged children require basic food requirements in order to remain healthy. We at NUR Community Outreach Program which was launched in 1995 have had more than 20 batches graduating and currently more than 2,100 children are studying in these schools.

Coming from impoverished backgrounds, a proper meal on the table is sometimes just not possible. Along with basic education, these children also require proper food to remain healthy.  

Most of these children never even thought of having such meals in their lives but with your generous support, we made it possible and we want to continue serving the underprivileged. These children need our support and they are the future of this country. Providing them with basic food and education should be our primary goal and that is what our organization has been doing with your support.

We request your support and ask you to donate generously so that these children can remain healthy and become a helping hand for others.

According to the Asian Development Bank, Pakistan is one of the countries where poverty remains high. About 29.5% of the population lives below the national poverty line.

For every 1000 babies born, 66 of them die before their first birthday. A major reason behind these deaths is due to malnutrition faced by both the children and their mothers.

Our community program continues to provide education to the underprivileged and the number of students is increasing. Providing food to everyone sometimes gets difficult since we strive hard to ensure that every child gets proper meal. In order to ensure that there is a continuous supply of food for these children, we require your generous support. The ever increasing number of children who do not even get to eat at all is disturbing and we have taken this initiative to provide them with food.

Keeping in view the above facts, we request your support and ask you to donate generously so that these children can remain healthy and become a helping hand for others.

Behind the dismal numbers lie heartbreaking stories of lives ruined and cut short due to the unavailability of affordable and quality healthcare. An unhealthy population with severely diminished capabilities cannot substantially contribute to the economy. Health indicators suggest that it is the lack of accessible healthcare — not terrorism, drones or the energy crisis — that is the greatest adversity facing Pakistan.

The fact that Pakistan is a developing economy with resource limitations is not an excuse when we look to other low-income countries that have made great strides in healthcare in the last few decades. The experiences of these countries provide illuminating lessons that should be applied in Pakistan.

As the number of children at these schools is increasing, the requirement for food has also gone up. With your continuous support, we have been feeding these underprivileged by providing them with quality food in order to ensure that along with education, their nutrition is also taken care of.

While we would like to arrange for lunch everyday however given the limited resources we are able to ensure weekly lunches and with your support we hope to make these lunches a daily exercise. These children have a complete right to get proper food for their growth and this requires help from all of you. They are the future of Pakistan and are putting all their efforts in studies to become leaders of tomorrow. As mentioned above that they are underprivileged and cannot afford proper meals, therefore, this effort from our side is the least we can do for these hard working children.

 

We request you to generously support this cause and help us raise these children making them our future.

 

Thank you!
