In Pakistan, almost half of women and children are malnourished. Child mortality and child stunting conditions have not improved in the past 30 years. Pakistan is on the brink in terms of hunger crisis.
And while most of us privileged people stay oblivious to these facts, some of us have stepped up and taken action to help the hungry. Such is the story of these three friends from Lahore.
At Huzaifa Ahmed's house, no one was allowed to take more than they can eat. For 20 years, his mother invited hungry people over to her own house for lunch who had nowhere else to eat. It was overlooked by this noble woman that no one goes back hungry. Huzaifa seeing this everyday wanted to something on a bigger scale.
In 2014 he, along with two other economic majors namely Qasim Javaid and Musa founded “RIZQ" ( @rizq.sharefood
) which happens to be Pakistan's food recovery and distribution service.
Now that we look at it, there is SO MUCH food wasted everyday at restaurants, weddings, events and even in houses! This food alone can fill the bellies of thousands of people who go to bed hungry each night.
Hopefully with the limelight that RIZQ has received thanks to Dasani Heroes, they’d now earn more sponsors and RIZQ would flourish!
More power to you three @qjkhaan @hujaifaa @musa.aamir811
