BASIC PROVISIONS & FOOD CHARITY
FOOD FOR ALL – ERADICATING HUNGER, ONE SOUL AT A TIME
Many challenges faced by Pakistan today, poverty & unemployment remain one of the most daunting. Despite recent technological, economical, and industrial growth and the improvement of quality of life, the poverty rate remains as high as 39% and an unemployment rate of 4.7% which leads to a great number of people struggling to meet ends meet in their daily lives. Even in large urban centers of the nation, much of the populace lives below the poverty line. Further exacerbated by the large income gap between demographic segments, rising inflation and rapidly depleting food and water resources, survival has become a despairing trial for a great number of people.

The simplest act of charity is often the most profound, with consequences echoing from hereon to eternity
The simplest act of charity is often the most profound, with consequences echoing from hereon to eternity. It is for this ideology, that the combined initiative of Syed Zamir Jafri Foundation, Muazzam Ali Shaheed Welfare Trust, and Charity Doings Foundation. Project Dastarkhuwan was brought to life. Dastarkhuwan – the simplest, purest, and noblest expression of love and charity, is a commitment of the provision of food to eat for those who need it, with no discrimination on race, gender or religion. It is an expression of empathy from those who can and are willing to spare, to those who are in need. Currently, the project is periodically executed in three locations in Islamabad – PIMS, Chour Chowk and I-9 – providing free and hygienic meals to more than 200+ people at a time. Quality, consistency & indiscrimination are the core principles for this project undertaken by the joint venture of both organizations.
We believe every soul fed is a step closer to shortening the vast gap between despair and hope. Every person who does not have to go to sleep hungry that day, every smile on the face of an otherwise despairing father as he watches his children sleep fulfilled, and every man who sees hope after despairing struggle is an investment into the future of this nation! We hope to cultivate dreams, passion, and empathy and develop an emotional connection across social boundaries. Above all, we commit ourselves to the ideology that everyone has the right to sleep without worrying about dying of hunger. Through collective efforts of many individuals, the day is not far where hunger can be eradicated from this nation, and we start progressing towards a brighter tomorrow!
