Ration Distribution During Lock-down in Pakistan

KPSIAJ Reaches Out to Needy Families for Ration Distribution

 

Ration Distribution During Lock-down in Pakistan


Introduction:

Due to the spread of COVID-19, the Government of Pakistan decided to shut down all the business and social activities. With this complete lockdown our community members also got affected especially those who were working on daily wages or running a small business.

The Khoja Pirhai Shia Ithna’asheri Jamaat of Pakistan (KPSIAJ) realized the severity of the situation and announced a donation campaign for the affected families. The Management requested its blessed members to follow the model of Ansar Muhajir of Madina-e-Rasool (saws) and support the community in this time of need. The response from the community members was overwhelming. To facilitate the donor members, KPSIAJ opened a separate bank account to collect the Ration donation.

The program of receiving the applications for ration distribution was launched on 23rd March. Ration distribution to community people started from March 25th.

The message was clear that,

“Together in their fight against COVID-19! They were all passing through extremely turbulent times, as COVID-19 has plagued the world. KPSIAJ felt that it was their moral duty to be of help for the needy- daily wage workers primarily who cannot sustain themselves. The scheme requested people to donate generously, whereby one ration package could support a family for one month. They voiced their plan of uniting in this amazing cause to create a positive impact together”.

 

Application process:

KPSIAJ worked tirelessly for the relief of their people, since the organization’s ration distribution began on 25th march across city. Hundreds of applications were received for the ration bag and the team scrutinized and processed them in no time.

After receiving the application, the team confirmed their JCIC number as a part of verification. Their complete details were checked to avoid duplication and effective delivery. Almost all the applications from the community were facilitated and were assured immediate delivery of the ration bag at their doorstep.

The managing committee communicated widely to request people to contact the Jamaat office to get the ration through all social media platforms.

Distribution Process:

The management divided the distribution into two phases, considering that the lockdown would prevail until the end of Ramadan. KPSIAJ opened all POC to receive applications from people including social media, calls and physical submission of applications at Jamaat office. Alongside this, the Jamaat circulated the messages in the community to highlight those who were in dire need. The program laid down the ethos that the ration would be delivered to needy ones at their doorsteps. The process was managed with complete secrecy on a need to know basis to ensure that the name of recipients was kept under wraps, so that the dignity of the person was not compromised.

 

First Phase of Ration Drive:

On 25th March, the Jamaat started distribution of ration bags amongst the deserving families of members in Karachi. The Management supervised the process of distribution of ration among the unemployed, widows and laborer of 1800 families in the largest city of Pakistan.

For the first phase, 1800 ration bags for deserving families have been distributed by the team of KPSIAJ with the help of volunteers.
