We Distribute Food Packages to the Poor for Ramadan
Each year Pen of Mercy distributes non-perishable food packages to poor families in Pakistan just before Ramadan.
In April of 2021 we distributed food packages to over 600 poor families in Pakistan just before the beginning of Ramadan. Last year in addition to the Ramadan food packages, in April of 2020 we distributed 306 food packages to families of the daily wage earning laborers who were adversely affected by the COVID-19.
A total of 630 families (approximately at least 3,150 individuals) benefited from the food packages distributed by Pen of Mercy in Ramadan this year.
This year each food package cost was approximately $30. Each package lasts approximately a week to ten days for a family of five. The following items are included in each package:
· Flour (20 kg bag)
· Ghee/Cooking Oil (5 kg container)
· Sugar (5 kg bag)
· Rice (5 kg bag)
· Tea (0.5 kg package)
· Daal - Lentils (2 kg bag)
