Amid the COVID-19 lockdown, Hindus in Pakistan were denied food by a large charitable organization, coordinating its activities with the government. They were told the rations were only for Muslims. Thankfully, they later received some aid, but are still in desperate need of our help. HAF is partnering with the Hare Ram Foundation in South Punjab, Pakistan to provide food for them.
The Pakistani Hindu refugees in Jodhpur, India, who HAF has supported for years through our Medical Seva programming, are also being impacted by COVID-19. Food aid from the Government of India is not being released fast enough. The 50,000 Pakistani Hindu refugees, who are mostly daily wage laborers, are running out of food fast.
Both groups need your help to survive.
