Meals for 1850 Young Students in Pakistan

Project Report | Jan 16, 2020
Feeding the Needy!

By Aazer Durrani | Head of Marketing

Poverty head count rate in rural Pakistan was twice as much in urban areas — 36% versus 18% — and the gap had remained virtually unchanged since 2001-02. Combined with the slow pace of urbanization — only about 35% of the country’s population lived in urban areas in 2014 — this gap indicated that 80% of Pakistan’s poor continued to live in rural areas.

 

According to the report, rural children are 8.5% less likely than urban children to have adequate immunisation by three years of age, and rural women are 10% less likely to receive prenatal care, 28% less likely to give birth in a facility or hospital, and 12% less likely to receive postnatal care. Rural households are also far less likely to have access to key utilities. They are 15% less likely to have an electricity connection and 63% less likely to have a natural gas connection than urban households.


The state of hunger in Pakistan is clearly explained above. A large number of people in Pakistan sleep on an empty stomach every night. Hence, Fatima Memorial Hospital and NUR Foundation have taken the matter in their own hands and have started to supply food to poverty stricken students of NUR Community Outreach Program (NCOP).

Everyday, more than 1800 children are provided with meals so that they are able to live a healthy life and focus on their studies. However, there are many more children who are unable to afford three meals per day and in order for us to continue to serve the poverty stricken masses, we urge our altruistic donors to make donations. Your donations and support can make a huge difference.

 

Thank you for your continued support!
