Our Response

This Ramadan, our commitment is to fighting food poverty – both at home and abroad. Both our UK and Pakistan food poverty campaigns ensure that the most vulnerable communities are being served with basic necessities.

In the UK, we have partnered with the UK’s largest food redistribution charity – Fareshare – to redistribute food through their vast network. On a weekly basis, our partnership with Fareshare is supporting almost 1 million people.

In Pakistan, our mobile food banks across four major regions - Punjab, Azad Jammu and Kashmir, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Sindh – are providing families with essential food supplies.

With your support, we can ensure no family is left hungry. From as little as 0.25p, you can provide a meal for a vulnerable person. Donate your zakat to The Amir Khan Foundation today and help us fight food poverty – at home and abroad.
