Like the previous 3 years, I am planning to send old/used/spare clothes/shoes/bags/toys, etc. to Pakistan for charity inshaAllah.
I have come across many people in KSA who would like to do such charity but they find difficulty in managing cargo for small quantities and managing proper distribution among needy/underprivileged. I will inshaAllah send all contributions together via sea cargo, using Shama Cargo Service. The distribution among needy will be managed by my father and mother.

If you would like to contribute anything then plz drop it at my apt/office by Saturday, 9th November 2019. You can contribute stuff in simple shopping bags as proper packing will be done by the cargo service. Plz don’t hesitate to donate the items which need repair as those items will be repaired in Pakistan.
If you would like to contribute to the Cargo Cost then last year it was: SR 3.88/kg (registration + receipt + packing + door-to-door service). If you can donate big boxes or packing tapes then it will help in reducing the packing cost.
You can contribute to this project in the following ways:
- You can contribute to the Cargo Cost, it will enable us to help the maximum number of needy/underprivileged. Even a contribution of $10 can help us distribute up to 10kg of clothes/shoes/school bags etc. Donations can be made through any of the following channels:
- You can start a similar initiative at your place, you just have to collect the donated items and send them at the given address. My parents will inshaAllah manage the storing, sorting, repair and distribution among needy/underprivileged.
