Following on from the New Year our Pakistan team once again provided a free rice meal, this time to 350 people in Youhanabad. These included shop workers, rickshaw drivers, children on the street, and many others. It was a blessing to be able to share a meal with these people. We are hoping to do this for the next 4 weeks and extend the initiative in order to start providing daily meals in the future.
One of the recipients was Mushtaq, a Rikshaw driver who limps due to one leg being shorter than the other and uses a wooden walking stick to support himself. He told how his Rikshaw’s battery was stolen recently and as a result he was unable to earn a living. Starfish were able to help and buy a replacement battery and he is grateful to be back on the road today.
