Parveen Saeed's quest to feed the poor in Karachi

Help

When Karachi resident Parveen Saeed read the story of a local woman who killed her two children because she could not afford to feed them, she decided something had to be done.

She began providing heavily subsidised meals to the city's poor, and then drew in family, friends and others to help set up food houses and distribution points.

Arif Shamim reports.
