HUNGER RELIEF

Under this programme we have a Widows and Special Persons Fund in line for providing subsidized ration and Atta to widows, special persons and needy on monthly basis.

HUF Utility Store

is located at K Block Commercial Area Phase 1 DHA, where we have food condiments and commodities for the Ration for deserving sponsored poor/widows and also for general public on subsidized rates. There are three ration Packages for the deserving: fully sponsored worth Rs: 3,000/-, 50% sponsored for Rs: 1500/- and even free for the deserving widows.

We are running a Free Food Station (DHABBA) at Gajju Matta, Ferozepur Road, Lahore, where we are providing meal to 250+ labourers daily free of cost. Proper food with proper sitting arrangement has been made. This arrangement is for the poor people of the area as well as workers from industries/ factories around the food station. We intend to extend the service to include more and more beneficiaries with the passage of time.

Additionally we are running 7 FOOD BANKS (Stand up Freezers) where cooked food/bakery items / fruits are placed in Freezers for the general public to pick free of cost. These food items are donated by various food factories, bakery product producers and also by general public. Daily rice/biryani Deghs are also arranged for free distribution among the poor.

During Ramadan elaborate Iftar is arranged with 6-7 deghs of biryani, dates and sherbet for 500 + rozedars daily are managed. Along with this, ration is also distributed during Ramadan at HUF Utility Store

We have also started a new project HALF PRICE FOOD DAILY to 100 people. A Food Cart is being placed at the Bus Adda (Bus Stand) at R. A. Bazaar, Lahore Cantt. Beneficiaries will be the poor labourers and commuters embarking or disembarking at the Bus Stand.

The cost of the food per person will come to Rs: 100/- each. HUF will be charging just Rs: 50/- per person per meal from the beneficiary and bear the balance.

The total cost per month comes to Rs: 300,000/- (Rupees Three Lakh only) Rs: 100/- x 100 x 30 days. We shall be receiving Rs: 150,000/- Rs: 50 x 100 x 30 days. The balance will be borne by HUF and its friends. The per-day cost of food will be Rs: 10,000/-(100 x100). The beneficiaries will pay Rs: 5,000/- per day (Rs: 50 x 100). So we need Rs: 5,000/- per day to cover the additional monthly expense.  With your Rs: 5,000/- we shall be able to provide food to 3000 people in a month.
