Providing a breadwinner with a new livelihood gives his/her family self-sufficiency. It helps them secure much-needed income with which to buy food and medicines.
More importantly, the independence gained from a new livelihood restores a family’s dignity. Beneficiaries can once again positively affect their own lives, and not rely on hand-outs from others.
In Pakistan and Kashmir to date, Ummah Welfare Trust has distributed nearly 3,000 sewing machines amongst poor families, and provided over 50 breadwinners with donkeys and carts.
Just a small amount can provide a new livelihood for a family breadwinner. So donate today.
Note: The majority of targeted recipients in Ummah Welfare Trust’s income-generating schemes are widows.
