KARACHI, PAKISTAN, June 7, 2021 — Baitulmaal, a Dallas-based international humanitarian relief agency, recently delivered zakat-ul-fitr funds, food, and gifts to 200 families in remote villages in Pakistan.
Around 50 families in the Sujawal district and 150 families in the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province along the Afghanistan-Pakistan border received clothing, toys, bangles and food boxes. They also celebrated Eid day with balloons, goody bags, and henna with Baitulmaal representatives.
According to Elizabeth Sohail, program manager at Baitulmaal, these Baitulmaal field workers have developed a special relationship with the local villagers over years of responding to emergencies, sustaining their economies with vocational training, and enabling access to water wells and community centers.
“It’s beautiful to see everyone enjoy Eid together as one family,” Sohail said. “Our donors have supported these communities with dignity and enabled them to thrive.”
Baitulmaal distributed approximately 3.9M meals this past Ramadan, as well as zakat-ul-fitr to those in need. The charity is currently preparing to provide more food and meat distributions for the upcoming Hajj season.
