HOPE USA is Working to Reduce Hunger and Malnutrition Amongst Underserved Communities Throughout Pakistan in Ramadan. $33 Feeds a Family of 8 for One Month.


Summary

Throughout the year and especially in Ramadan, HOPE USA is working to end hunger and malnutrition in Pakistan.  Just $33 Provides a Family of 8 with Food Rations for One Month.  Join Us in Uplifting Poor Communities Throughout Pakistan this Ramadan With Your Zakat-Eligible Donation.

Details

Summary: 40% of children under the age of 5 in Pakistan are stunted according to the UN World Food Program, and of those, 11% are severely malnourished. Similarly, 20% of the general population faces hunger on a daily basis. This project aims to fight hunger and malnutrition across Pakistan by providing monthly Food Rations to families living below the poverty line. This is a Zakat-Eligible project.

 

 

Challenge

Challenge: Due to poverty rates of 25 to 40%, recurring natural disasters, and political and economic volatility, much of Pakistan's population struggles to meet basic needs such as food security. This has resulted in 40 million people (out of 220 million total) who are not getting enough nutrients. In fact, Pakistan has twice the rate of malnourished people than other countries worldwide. Growth stunting due to malnourishment/undernourishment affects as many as 50% of Pakistan's children.

 

Solution

Solution: HOPE USA is attempting to tackle this problem head-on by delivering monthly food rations to families living below the poverty line in Pakistan. Our Food Rations consist of a month's supply of Rice, Wheat Flour (to make tortillas), Lentils, Cooking Oil, Milk Powder, Tea, Sugar, Salt, and Biscuits - enough for a family of 8. You may partake in this fight against hunger by sponsoring a month of Food Rations for a Family of 8 for just $33. Any amount is welcome!

 

 

Long-Term Impact

Long-Term Impact HOPE is aiming to tackle poverty from all angles: Healthcare, Education, Vocational Training, Clean Water, and Disaster Relief. We believe that citizens can break free from the cycle of poverty through adequate intervention. By tackling the crisis of food insecurity at a grassroots level, we are reducing malnourishment in the general population, and especially children, which will then lead to better health outcomes for the most vulnerable fragments of society in Pakistan.

 

 

About HOPE USA

HOPE Charities USA is a volunteer-based nonprofit 501(c)(3) charitable organization working to better the socioeconomic forefront of impoverished citizens in Pakistan.  Estimates of poverty in Pakistan range anywhere from 25 percent to almost 40 percent.  Health indicators suggest that it is the lack of accessible healthcare — not terrorism, drones or the energy crisis — that is the greatest adversity facing Pakistan.  Additionally, in a country where 60 percent of youth are illiterate and only 1 in 3 women can read and write, education becomes a scarce commodity which inhibits freedom from poverty.  HOPE USA’s mission is to end poverty in Pakistan through a calculated, multi-pronged interventional approach which focuses on Healthcare, Education, Vocational Training, Clean Water, and Disaster Relief.

 



Currently, HOPE has a countrywide presence throughout Pakistan which includes 4 Hospitals, 3 Formal Schools, 200 Informal Schools, 6 Vocational Centers, 1 Basic Health Clinic, 2 Mobile Health units, and 6 Maternal and Child Health Clinics.  Altogether we have grown to a network of hospitals and schools that treats over 750,000 patients per year, educates 12,000 students annually, and provides income-generating skills to over 2,000 young adults yearly; 70 percent of our beneficiaries are women and children.

 



All of HOPE USA’s health, education, and vocational training facilities provide free/nominal cost services to the impoverished. Additionally, HOPE has been on the frontlines of every emergency relief effort that has impacted Pakistan, from the 2005 Kashmir earthquake to the current 2022 catastrophic flooding crisis. Our emergency relief efforts have generated aid to over 100,000 victims of natural disasters over the years and we have established 120 hand pumps in remote and rural areas to provide clean water to 120,000 people total.
