Model village handed over to flood affectees


From Our Correspondent


MUZAFFARGARH: The UK-based international relief and development organisation on Thursday handed over a model village at Ehsanpur union council to the food affected people.


Special Assistant to Chief Minister on Health Khawaja Salman Rafiq was the chief guest while Junaid Jamshed and others attended the function. Speaking on the occasion, UK-based international relief and development organisation CEO Saboohuddin said that the model village was one of their rehabilitation projects in Pakistan and they were working on similar large scale projects in Rahimyar Khan, which would be completed in June. Built on over 2.5 acres of land, the model village consists of 44 houses, a mosque, a dispensary, a park and a school. The model village will accommodate over 259 people affected by the flood in 2010. The model village has been built with funds donated by the International Relief Fund for the Afflicted and Needy. The project was conceptualised, planned and developed by the UK-based organisation in collaboration with the Provincial Disaster Management Authority (PDMA).
