Ration Distribution

A large size of population in Pakistan is deprived of the basic necessities of life. However, there is a silver lining on the darkening sky in the form of NGO’s like HOPE. HOPE – an NGO in Pakistan has been doing philanthropic activities since the beginning of Ramadan so that even the less privileged ones can enjoy the festivities of Ramadan and Eid.

Along with Eid clothes, iftar and briyani boxes distribution, HOPE team has also been distributing ration to the needy families. So far, the team has distributed 1200 ration bags in urban slums as well as outskirts of Karachi among its students studying in HOPE Formal and Home Schools as well as patients in Sindh Government Hospital and HOPE Hospitals.




Around 125 ration bags were distributed among the patients’ families in Sindh Government Hospital, more than 75 ration bags were distributed among the poor and needy students in Bhattaiyabad schools, more than 50 ration bags were distributed among the poor and needy students in Sachal School, around 50 bags were distributed among the needy students and patients in 2 home schools and MNCH Center in Mujahid Colony, 45 ration bags were distributed among the poor and needy students in Bilal colony, more than 250 ration bags were distributed among the needy students and patients in Zia Colony’s Formal School and Hospital.








Communities residing in far flung areas across Karachi are indeed very poor. Hence, during Ramadan, HOPE, a health NGO in Pakistan, does not forget them and provides help to them as well in the form of food, Eid clothes and ration distribution. These areas include, ghaggar, bhens colony, link road and dhabeji etc. More than 285 ration bags were distributed among the needy families residing there.




The team will continue to distribute ration till the end of Ramadan. The children and patients are delighted to receive the ration as they belong to the low-income class who cannot even afford to buy basic grocery and enjoy their Ramadan and Eid. Seeing the innocent smiles on the faces of the children is extremely gratifying and it affirms our belief that all the efforts, the hassle, the obstacles are worth going through just to see a smile on the faces of these children who can’t afford to enjoy the festivity of Ramadan and Eid to its fullest. These activities are carried out under the supervision of Dr. Mubina Agboatwalla - a child specialist in Karachi who is the person behind HOPE – an NGO in Pakistan.
