For low-income countries like Pakistan, a very large segment of the population is either homeless or housed in inadequate housing. According to a survey conducted by UNDP in 2016, revealed that forty percent of Pakistan’s population live in “multidimensional poverty”. The PDP Foundation estimates that there are 20 million people in Pakistan without housing across the country and majority of them live in big cities. The majority end up in slums and other informal settlements. Others settle at shrines, under bridges, flyovers, on pavements and road dividers.
Though we at TARS Foundation cannot provide proper shelter to all the homeless people in our community due to the limitation of resources, yet we try our level best to provide free food on daily basis, and clothing and other kind of support on occasional basis to the homeless people.
Homeless People Support
One of the prominent helping sectors of TARS Foundation is Homeless People Support. In fact the inception of TARS Foundation is based on providing all the possible support to the homeless people living in our community. The three main types of help by TARS Foundation with homeless people include:
1. Daily Free Meal Distribution
2. Clothes Distribution
3. Cash Distribution
