Box of Happiness

After the popular Wall of Kindness, it is now time for the “Box of Happiness” in Pakistan. A group of humanitarian thinkers have realized the need and significance of food in the country. It is a simple realization that the need to eat and pain of starvation makes good people sometimes do things, they would never want to do in the first place. Understanding this, Box of Happiness is created to provide meals to the hungry people.

On the University Road of Peshawar, a yellow box can be seen against the maroon-colored wall opposite Khyber Teaching Hospital. This yellow colored box has the smiley emoji on it and is always filled with 100 food containers at lunch and dinner hours for the laborers, who cannot afford food.

This humble and foody initiative has been taken by the students of Institute of Management Sciences (IMSciences). These students make sure that 100 boxes are filled in this box twice a day. The menu mostly remains the same. Biryani and Kabuli Pulao are the two main desi dishes served without any discrimination.

Head of the students, who took the initiative, mentioned that he aims to expand this initiative to other, parts of the country as well. It is also surprising to know that he does not take any donations or funds for this service but young boys do it from their own pocket money. According to some of the laborers, who eat the food from the Box of Happiness considers it a blessing in disguise.
