To build an educated, healthy and prosperous global society with dignity and honor for all people with a focus on helping women achieve top entrepreneurial, managerial and economic positions.
Thanks to your support, we distributed food rations to 1000 starving families this past Ramadan.
So proud of our LADIESFUND Award winners who distributed – focusing especially on the most neediest including primarily daily wage earners as well as widows, minorities, refugees, street children – including Sheema Kermani (300 families), Simi Kamal (94 families in Chachro, 200 Lesbala), Anisa Rashid Khan (130 families Pepri) Shabina Mustafa (60 families), Yasmeen Lari (40 families in Makli), Angie Marshall (25 boxes) and to Educate a Girl Fundraising Chair Nazneen Tariq Khan (110 families) + 107 directly distributed by Team LADIESFUND, for a total of 1066 families receiving this Ramadan. Yay!
Now, the Government of Pakistan has stopped – yes, stopped – distributing rations and yet the situation is worsening. COVID-19 numbers are about to cross as of today 150,000 and businesses are shutting down, laying off workers, certainly not retaining daily wage workers and there is talk of more lockdowns. Already, Punjab has announced a two-week lockdown and Sindh has an area specific 2 week lockdown. Dire circumstances, one that is resulting in more hungry families than even before. Please help!
We are fundraising to distribute our next 1000 rations. Nestle Pakistan has just donated enough milk, juice and nutrient packs for the 1000 families, which we will add to the ration boxes your funds will go towards. Here is a picture of Nestle Pakistan official representative Rahat distributing in this jumbo truck their contribution to moi, DGF – LADIESFUND President Tara Uzra Dawood. We take their entrustment of their donation with us very seriously, as we do each and every donation. This is truly a team effort that is growing every day, as the need increases minute by minute. Thank you!
