Since 1999, Hidaya has sent over 250 forty ft. containers to benefit hundreds of thousands of people through Container Shipment for In-Kind Donations project!
Hidaya Foundation collects new and gently used in-kind donations to help the economically weak overseas. According to Hidaya’s current business model, in-kind donations are not sold, rather they are given to the deserving.
It costs approximately $4,000 - $5,000 to ship each container (approx. $2,000 - $2,500 for shipping from US to Pakistan, approx. $1,000 for trucking in US & Pakistan, approx. $1,000 - $1,500 for clearing from port & distribution). Normally, one container is enough to clothe over 10,000 people. Please donate towards Container Shipment for In-Kind Donations project.
