CHANGING HEARTS. CHANGING MINDS. CHANGING LIVES.
JUST UNDER 40% OF PAKISTANIS FALL BELOW THE POVERTY LINE A THRESHOLD BALANCING WHETHER BASIC HUMAN NEEDS CAN BE MET BY THE HOUSEHOLD INCOME.
Devastatingly, that’s around 115 million people without the necessities of one basic meal per day and hygiene essentials to keep illness and disease at bay.
EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES FOR WOMAN ARE CHALLENGING, SO OFTEN CHILDREN ARE FORCED TO WORK IN ORDER TO FINANCIALLY CONTRIBUTE, MEANING THEY DO NOT ATTEND SCHOOL AND SO THE CYCLE OF POVERTY CONTINUES AND MALNUTRITION, ILLNESS AND HUNGER CARRY ON RISING.
In April 2022 BRAUS Foundation joined the fight against hunger derived from poverty, providing food packs to around 450 families or 2500 people. The packs included enough essential food items (flour, rice, oil, several types of grains, salt, sugar, tea, basen) to feed the families for between 20 to 30 days. We focused our efforts towards widows, orphaned children, elderly and the most vulnerable in a small village just outside Sialkot named Bhaloor. A conflicting experience providing much needed support, but knowing that it is not nearly enough. Continuing to fight poverty from it’s core remains a priority across all our Pakistan projects.
we are committed to doing
what we can, wherever we can,
and with that will continue food
drives throughout the year.
$20 feeds a family of six people for one entire month.
