The Jhelum Region of Kashmir has been struggling as a result of a variety of reasons, including the current and violent crisis in Kashmir, inflation in Pakistan as a result of an unstable economy, and a poor government incapable of meeting the needs of its people.

Food provisions have been provided to 250 households, sufficient to supply a family of five. These families are situated in Pakistan’s Jhelum district. As-Suffa Institute responded to the dire needs of families. Food provision can now be met for starving and malnourished families. The concern and fear which is alleviated are linked to the optimistic strengthening of desperate individuals’ mindset. A boost of people’s optimism has a direct impact on their outlook and expectation.
