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.
