Challenge

Tharparkar have been witnessing famine-like conditions for ages. The average annual rainfall is less than 250mm, which is usually uneven and erratic. The sandy arid area with high wind velocity has indeed a fragile ecosystem. If its vegetative cover is overexploited and marginal lands on the slopes of sandy dunes are brought under cultivation, the area will turn into a barren desert. During the last couple of years, more than 800 children died due to malnutrition in the district.

Solution

FRDP Pakistan planing to distribute Ramadan Food Basket to the poor communities who have no access to even one time food, They mostly practising fasting in Ramadan without food. This food basket will help them to eat three time meal and can fast easily.

Long-Term Impact

Poor people have food available in the time of Ramadan and they can have food at least for the fasting, because the current situation is worst in the area and people not even take one time meal.
