Hunger, Food Insecurity and Malnutrition are the problems that affect many people in Pakistan. This can be due to poverty or insufficient funds for food. However, there are NGOs out there that work hard to help those who are suffering from hunger and malnutrition have a better life. These organizations offer support by offering nutritional supplements or financial assistance so they can purchase food for themselves.
Hunger is an issue not only limited to developing countries but also affects other nations as well – including the United States of America! There are ways you can get involved with these organizations if you wish to make a difference by donating money, time or even your own skills/talents which will benefit everyone around you!
Numerous non-governmental organizations (NGOs) in Pakistan are working to end hunger and malnutrition. This post discusses the list of these NGOs, providing examples of their important initiatives that will be beneficial for anyone interested in supporting this cause.
