When we laid the foundations of HISWO, we were fully cognizant of a paradox that exists in Pakistan: millions continue to live and survive the grinding poverty, preventable diseases and corruption, yet, Pakistan is a country full of potential and a promise for bright future. I applaud the efforts and dedication of the HISWO team and volunteers who are frontline soldiers in our fight against hunger, disease and pollution. With the help of the unwavering commitment of volunteers and skilled staff, HISWO has responded back to the needs of the vulnerable communities in urban slums.
OUR RATIONALE (Contributing in the SDGs)
The Sustainable Development Goals provide a holistic blueprint for change – an integrated plan to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure that all people enjoy lasting peace and prosperity. HISWO’s role is to implement projects and programs to help the communities throughout society to power and accelerate their progress towards the Goals.
This is HISWO’s primary and core initiatives in Karachi. With the help of donations and efforts of volunteers HISWO is feeding thousands of people on streets of Karachi. The main objective of this initiative is to promote the sense of belonging to the community. Pakistan, just like other countries in the world, is grappling with the pandemic which has forced the companies to lay off their staff, resulting in increased unemployment. On top of that, increased food prices have crippled the vulnerable population residing in the cities. The initiative is a response to help the poor and needy population by taking care of their dietary needs
