Fundraiser for the Daily Wage earners in Pakistan

Dear Community;

Among the countries who have been hit severely by Covid 19, Pakistan has also become a major victim. To contain the pandemic from spreading government has imposed the Lock down with curfew in some parts of the country.   Daily wage workers, have not been able to earn a rupee in more than two weeks as Pakistan battles an outbreak of the coronavirus that has seen more than 1,000 people infected, forcing a countrywide lockdown. Daily wage laborers require sites and opportunities that demand their skills or input. But when there is a lockdown, all economic activity, construction activity all of those activities get suspended. A major part of Pakistani population earns on daily basis. They are not fearing dying from disease but from hunger.  In the words of a Maqbool, a daily wage earner;

"Last night, I went to bed hungry," says Maqbool Ahmed, 40, a construction worker. "I only had a biscuit for dinner."

This situation demands, us who are privileged enough to have three meals a day to share our resources with these people. We, through the platform of our social organisation, have started this comprehensive food drive to cater to the needs of the unprivileged. Our target is to target as many people as possible in two cities of the country, Taxila and Lahore. The food drive will be carried out keeping in mind the current security measures and health risks. Our team members from both the cities will search for the needy families and deliver the food bags in their homes. The food bag will contain the following items;

Rice: 3 kg
Oil: 3 kg
Sugar: 2 kg
Flour: 10 kg
Tea: 250 gm
Salt: 1 Packet
Beans: 2 kg
Everyday milk packs : 800 gm

The total estimated cost of one ration bag is 2,340/-  Pakistani Rupee. It is equal to 12 £. You can sponsor one complete bag or donate the amount you can afford.
It’s a comprehensive ration drive aimed at targeting the maximum people in both the cities. We request you to come forward and be a part of this noble cause. If you donate, we will keep you updated about the process.
