Sometimes a small thing you do can mean everything in another person’s life. Charity does not always mean giving lavish and huge items to needy ones instead it can be symbolize by fulfilling their basic needs such as giving them food. The best strategy for providing food to the community is by bringing it to their doorsteps.
Communities residing in far flung areas across Karachi are indeed very poor and during Ramadan, HOPE, a charitable NGO in Pakistan provides help to them in the form of food distribution. Recently in the communities where HOPE has already established schools and hospitals, distributed Biryani packets and Iftar boxes amongst the children and the underprivileged families in different rural areas of Karachi such as, Rehri Goth, Bhens Colony, Zia Colony, Bhittaiabad, SachalGoth, Pipri, Gadap, Dhabey Jee, Ghagir, Link Road, Bilal Colony, Manzor Colony, Shah Ghazi Goth, Manzil Pump, Mujahid Colony.
It was distributed to a very large number of people in both the areas – bringing joy and smiles to their faces. Such distribution of food by HOPE, a charitable NGO in Pakistan is done on a daily basis in very poor urban slum areas and in the villages on the edge of the city.
As always particular attention is given by Dr MubinaAgboatwalla, child specialist in Karachi, in the selection of the sites for the food distribution. Around 200 packets were distributed daily during Iftar to bring smiles on the faces of these children and alleviate their hunger in this holy month of Ramadan.
