SINDH DEVELOPMENT ORGANIZATION

Collaboration with Deputy Commissioner (Shikarpur)

ALHAMDULILAH, SDO has collaborated with the Office of the Deputy Commissioner (Shikarpur) to distribute food parcels to households affected due to measures taken to control the spread of #CoronaVirus. The office has issued an order to grant official permission to our program.

Brother Naeem Shoaib, who leads project activities on the ground, had an in-depth meeting with Mr. Ali Raza Ansari, Additional Deputy Commissioner, and assured the government that we stand right next to them during this testing time. The government has assured to provide police security during the distribution and appreciated the execution plan, i.e. to deliver food packets at doorsteps of those in need. The list of beneficiaries would be shared with the government, prior to distribution, to avoid duplication. However, the organization will verify and select cases as per its own criteria.

We are very thankful to the District Government for their support and appreciation. We believe this public-private partnership model will deliver results that will help us to avoid issues such as starvation and malnutrition, it will help us to #DelaythePeak.

Moreover, we have also registered ourselves with ‘Sindh Relief Initiative’ to help the Government of Sindh in reaching out to families in Interior Sindh. We will also be registering ourselves with Ehsaas in order to facilitate the Federal Government in reaching out to those in need, in Interior Sindh.

If this effort is being recognized today, it’s with the Grace of Allah (SWT) and due to the trust you all have shown towards this initiative. Our aim is to distribute 3,000 food parcels, we have already achieved 10% of the target roughly in a week’s time.

There’s a long way to go. The journey has just begun. Let’s do it together, INSHALLAH.
