KARACHI, PAKISTAN July 14, 2023 — Baitulmaal, a Dallas-based international humanitarian nonprofit, recently distributed fresh meat for 13,100 meals to impoverished families in Pakistan as part of the Islamic season of Udhiyah.
Approximately 1,926 families living in the Sujawal and Naushero Feroze Districts in Sindh Province as well in the Mansehra District of the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Province received fresh meat from locally-sourced and humanely-slaughtered cows.
“These families live in unfortunate circumstances with little to no income to afford meat,” Sohail said. “To some, this might have been the first time eating meat this year.”
The World Food Programme reports that 36.9 percent of Pakistan’s population faces food insecurity, with 18 percent of children under 5 suffering from acute malnutrition.
In addition to seasonal Islamic giving programs, Baitulmaal coordinates emergency aid efforts, water, hygiene and sanitation projects, orphan support programs and other humanitarian aid to under-served populations regardless of faith or nationality.
