Any such credible effort in Islamabad? Can't really manage it, or finance all the expenses but would feel blessed if I could take part, even if it means washing their cooking pans twice a week.

@Zahid: Please do your research before posting such a comment as similar system is already in place in the UK by the way of a benefits system and also the recent opening of food banks.
