Sani Welfare Foundation is delighted to announce that we have now expanded our reach and set up food distribution at a new venue in Hyderabad – ESI Hospital, Nacharam.
We launched the new food distribution project at ESI Hospital in Nacharam on the 17th of February 2021. It was inaugurated by respected Madam Grace.
More recently, we have also started free breakfast distribution at Malakpet.
The British Government awarded Azhar Maqsusi, the founder of Sani Welfare with the Commonwealth Points of Light Award for his initiative, “Hunger Has No Religion” He decided to begin the campaign way back in 2011 when he saw a frail old woman near the Dabeerpura flyover, who had not eaten. Since then, he has been arranging meals for those who could not afford them, under this campaign, which now feeds about 1500 people everyday in five cities across the country. The award recognises outstanding individuals who are trying to bring about change in their community. When interviewed, Mr. Azhar said, “I am happy that I was given the award. But the most significant thing is to see the Indian tri-colour next to ‘Hunger Has No Religion’ on the Points of Light website. That means the world to me. It is a great honour. I would like to thank the British Deputy High Commissioner Andrew Fleming, and the many well-be wishers on social media.”
We are pleased to share with all our patrons that we celebrated the 10th anniversary of our food distribution efforts at Sani Welfare Foundation – 10 years of feeding hungry souls, through thick and thin, through pandemic lockdowns and calamities, one man – Azhar Maqsusi – and his team that has made this possible.
