Shan Shares, the CSR identity of Shan Foods, has expanded partnership with Saylani International Welfare Trust (SWIT), a non-governmental organization focusing primarily on feeding the poor and homeless, by sponsoring another free meal set up in an effort to provide free meals to the underprivileged members of the society. This initiative is part of the agreement Shan Shares had signed last year with the Saylani Welfare Trust to regularly sponsor food for underserved people and provide their products for the preparation of meals. Under this collaboration, thousands of people have already been provided with meals free of cost since the launch of its first food truck. By sponsoring another meal set up, Shan Shares aims to expand its outreach in the city and share meals with more communities. These efforts are in line with Shan Shares’ mission to achieve the goal of zero hunger in society. Maria Rashdi, Head of Corporate Communication and PR Shan Foods, while commenting on the arrangement, said, “Hunger has been a global issue for a long time. Today, a staggering 811 million people worldwide do not have enough food to eat which automatically obstructs their further growth in life. Shan Shares is committed to erasing the inequalities prevalent around us and working towards creating an equitable and peaceful society for all. The first step to a just world and an empowered community is to make sure people’s basic needs are met and everyone has equal access to opportunities needed to live a fulfilled life. We hope that through this collaborative initiative with Saylani Welfare Trust and our other collective efforts, our efforts will help to put an end to hunger and people will be empowered to fight against poverty and inequalities as per Shan Shares’ vision.” Expressing his views on Shan Shares’ contribution towards the cause, Mr. Bashir Farooqi, Founder Saylani Welfare International Trust (SWIT), said, “Our foundation is based on the ideology of feeding the homeless and the needy people. Given the rising inflation and the plight of poor people in our society, we should all come forward together and play a part in improving the lives of those struggling around us. For this, we truly appreciate Shan Shares’ support and involvement in our cause.” Shan Shares aims to continue to take further initiatives in this regard in the future to fulfill its mission to transform the society.
