IKF Fulfills Promise to Kot Sabzal Flood Affectees

29 Aug, 2012

In the aftermath of the 2010 floods, Imran Khan visited District Rahimyar Khan to survey the damage and to distribute relief to flood affectees.  It was at one such relief distribution that he pledged to help rebuild the homes of the residents of a Mouza named Kot Sabzal.  2 years later, the IKF has fulfilled its pledge to the residents of 9 Bastis in Kot Sabzal and another 3 in Mud Manthar.  Infrastructure has been upgraded as well.  At a cost of Rs. 25 Million, a red brick road has been laid that will connect over 20 villages (incl. 9 we have worked with) to the National Highway.  In addition to this, the sanitary conditions in the village have been improved through the addition of soakage pits for each new home.

Next up, the beneficiary communities, with limited support from the IKF, are undertaking to plant trees and shrubs to further beautify and therefore, upgrade their living conditions.  It is anticipated that at the conclusion of the construction phase of the Development plan in the area, the IKF will begin to plan interventions in the area of education and preventative health care.  Development is a long term process, which requires equally long term engagement.  Stay tuned as we continue our mission to help Pakistan’s rural poor help themselves.
