Urfat, Rashad, Bilal and Fasel's Pakistan Trip

In January, we will be flying out to the Thar desert in Pakistan to see the projects Charity Right are running their and see what the conditions are like for the families and schoolchildren who inhabit the desert. 

 

What's happening in Thar?


Between 2011 and 2016, over 1500 children under the age of 5 died in the Thar Desert, Pakistan. Within the first ten days of 2016, 17 children had died of starvation. Doctors say that malnutrition is the most common cause of death. 

Sadly, this is nothing new for the district. Frequent drought kills not just people, but also the livestock that residents depend on for their food, milk, and livelihood. The majority have little to no access to healthcare, and the average distance to the nearest health facility is 17km. 

These droughts are predictable and regular, making death avoidable. But corruption and a lack of coordination mean that government-sanctioned aid often doesn't reach those who need it. 

The Tharparkar district is one of the harshest environments in the world. Without help, people will continue to die of starvation.

 

What do Charity Right do?


Charity Right programme in the Thar Desert provides 14 schools with daily school meals. That's  nearly 1,500 students who are given freshly cooked food at school every day.

Because of the drought, families were in constant migration in search of food. For the minority that could afford to send their children to school, moving meant children never had the chance to complete their studies.

Now that we guarantee schoolchildren a daily meal, families can settle in one place, and parents encourage their children to attend school.


                                                                                                                                           

As part of our trip out to visit these families and children, we are looking to raise £10,000 to feed over 80 school children for the entire year!

    "Allaah says (interpretation of meaning):

    “And they give food, in spite of their love for it (or for the love of Him), to the Miskeen (the poor), the orphan, and the captive,

    9. (Saying): ‘We feed you seeking Allaah’s Countenance only. We wish for no reward, nor thanks from you.

    10. ‘Verily, We fear from our Lord a Day, hard and distressful, that will make the faces look horrible (from extreme dislike to it).’

    11. So Allaah saved them from the evil of that Day, and gave them Nadhrah (a light of beauty) and joy.

    12. And their recompense shall be Paradise, and silken garments, because they were patient”
