Ehsaas Koi Bhooka Na Soye Program

The Ehsaas Koi Bhooka Na Soye Program is a step towards eliminating hunger in our country. There are thousands or even millions of people who are living a life below the poverty line in Pakistan. These poor families do not have income sources or any other resources to live a life in peace. To tackle this unbalanced situation, the most famous and former PM of Pakistan, Imran Khan has started this program. The main purpose of this program was to provide a cooked meal to those needy people who can not afford it.

Ehsaas Koi Bhooka Na Soye Program

The program was serving meals to over 80K people in 29 major cities of Pakistan. The meal was specially prepared for people like laborers, daily wagers, travelers, young kids, and women so they can get at least a free meal every day.

Through the implementation of a well-coordinated network of food vans in selected cities, the program strived to ensure that nobody went to bed hungry, extending support to those in dire need. Also, It went beyond governmental efforts by fostering partnerships with influential private organizations like Saylani Welfare Trust and Daraz, amplifying its reach and impact. With this dedicated initiative, the government’s objective was to combat hunger and create a society where no one would have to endure the pain of an empty stomach.

The plan was to spread this program to 60 million people in the country but due to the change of government, Imran Khan wasn’t able to fulfill this dream. However, the NGOs are still ready to contribute to this program and provide donations as well. Draz has contributed to this program by providing 10 million rupees of donations.

Ehsaas Koi Bhooka Na Soye Food Van Program

The whole scheme is based on mobile food corners that reach every nook of the city to serve prepared and hot meals. These food vans or trucks are running 24/7 in all the major locations of the city like near the hospitals, bus stations, railway stations, and working areas so laborers can avail this food.

The van is fully prepared for food delivery and preparation. So these food trucks are fully equipped with all the facilities that one can avail in a kitchen. There are professional chefs who are preparing the dishes, servants who are serving the meals, and all the eating accessories like glass, plates, spoons, and jugs.

If we talk about the serving capacity, then these food vans were able to serve over 2000 people per day. So it is a whole package for needy people who are striving for a one-time meal. The service was first started in March 2021 and it started in the twin cities of Rawalpindi and Islamabad. After that, the government spread the food vans all over the major cities in Pakistan.

Once the service was introduced in other cities like Lahore, Multan, Faisalabad, and Gujranwala, it gained so much appreciation from the needy class.

The overseas Pakistani has sent so many donations for this program and that is why the program was developing day by day until the new government arrived. However, new Prime Minister Shahbaz Sharif has finally closed this free meal-serving scheme. So that is why people started to stop donating to this program.

Services of Ehsaas Koi Bhooka Na Soye Program

The program was very great for those who are not able to purchase atta and prepare a meal to fulfill their hunger. Here are some of the benefits that were distributed among poor people with the help of this program.

No One Goes to Sleep Hungry:

The program ensures that no one in our country has to sleep on an empty stomach. It aims to provide meals and food assistance to those who are facing hunger and food insecurity. Due to food preparation and serving trucks, they can reach anywhere and serve the meals.

Enhanced Food Security:

By addressing the issue of hunger, the program contributes to improving food security in our nation. Also, It ensures that vulnerable individuals and families have access to nutritious meals on a regular basis. It is very necessary for the good health of the nation.

Alleviating Poverty:

The program focuses on reaching out to the economically disadvantaged sections of society. By providing food assistance, it helps alleviate poverty and reduces the financial burden on families struggling to meet their basic needs. So now they can get free meals and have at least food for every day.

Healthier Population:

Access to adequate food is essential for good health. Through this program, people receive nourishing meals, which can improve their overall well-being and contribute to a healthier population in Pakistan.

Social Cohesion:

The program promotes social cohesion by fostering a sense of solidarity and compassion within our society. It demonstrates that we care for our fellow citizens and are committed to ensuring that everyone has enough to eat.

These are some of the services that were delivered to the nation’s most needy people for free. After the closure of this program, these people must be facing the pain of hunger and they can not get free meals. However, the good news is that there are other private NOGs who are still providing the three meals to anyone no matter if he is poor or not. So this is a good thing and we hope it will continue.

However, If you want to request the current government to start this program again, you can send them a request on the government website.
