There are about 30,000 HDF partner families in 292 villages in Pakistan. All these families are poor, out of these families, about 12,000 are ultra-poor and out these 12,000 ultra-poor families, about 4,640 are the Zakat eligible families who are at greater risk of suffering devastating losses from COVID-19 particularly in lockdown situation.
With generous support of donors in Canada and USA, HDF has been able to play an active role in relief and rehabilitation works during times of national calamities and disasters. Now to fight this global calamity of COVID-19, most vulnerable families of our partnering communities in Pakistan are in need of resources to keep themselves alive. We have proposed a monthly food pack containing following essential items:
20 Kg Flour
5 Kg Ghee/Cooking Oil
5 Kg Rice
3 Kg Sugar
3 Kg Assorted Pulses
Pack of Chili and Salt
Cost of one such food pack is C$ 41. We are looking to support 5,000 most vulnerable families.
