Our work in Pakistan
In Pakistan, our charity work entails both ongoing development and responding to any immediate emergencies.
Hundreds of charity projects have been completed by Global Helping Hands in Pakistan. We are committed to completing even more school, water, medical, and shelter projects, thanks to the continued support of Muslims in the UK.
Pakistan has the world’s sixth largest population, but a fifth of its people are still poor. In Pakistani society, women face numerous challenges. Men own the majority of the land, despite accounting for roughly 60% of the agricultural workforce.
“When a person dies, all their deeds end except three: a continuing charity, beneficial knowledge and a child who prays for them.”
(Hadith of the Prophet ﷺ, narrated by Muslim)
A hydroponic farm can help a struggling family in a drought-stricken area. When vegetables are grown directly in water, they use less water and produce a higher yield of vegetables, allowing farmers to earn a consistent income.
You can also help a vulnerable person start a honey bee farm by providing them with the tools and training they need. 90% of our beekeepers expand their operations and add new hives, producing more honey to sell for profit.
Water and sustainability
Installing a water well for an entire drought-stricken community is a Sadaqah Jariyah that will assist the entire village in growing crops, feeding livestock, and drinking safe water.
In Tharparkar, we're also working to transform entire communities by providing a well, solar-powered lighting, livestock, latrines, and training. It's a project that has completely transformed the communities in which we've already worked, allowing them to become self-sufficient, self-sufficient, and thriving, even during droughts.
