Food for All
ATF vision to see a prosperous Pakistan with a civilized and contributing society is not possible without fighting the problem of hunger. Food is the most basic physical need of every living being but unfortunately not available sufficiently to every human being. Hunger is a global issue but Pakistan is categorized as a country with “Seriously high” hunger index according to the 2012 Global Hunger Index just managing to avoid falling under “Alarming” category.
Although ATF believes in taking proactive approach primarily through “Education against Odds” and “Small Business Setup” programs, but have a realization that it will not be possible to overlook the needy people who do not have access to food and cannot be made self sufficient presently. ATF regularly comes across the families and individuals who are not able to earn their living and it’s not possible to make them self-dependent by any of the other programs. Most of such people are either widows, orphans or disabled people who don’t have anyone to financially support them.
Poor nations are hungry, and rich nations are proud; and pride and hunger will ever be at variance.
ATF thoroughly verifies such cases and if they conform the criteria for eligibility, certain quota of monthly ration is assigned for them according to the family needs. As this program is targeted towards food needs, ration usually contains edible items only. The needs of families are reassessed periodically to decide whether to discontinue/increase/decrease the assistance to ensure that the merit prevails for serving such cases as needs of the society are far greater than the available resources.
