August 24, 2019

ISLAMABAD: The Chief of Air Staff, Air Chief Marshal Mujahid Anwar Khan, called on the National Assembly Speaker, Asad Qaisar, on Friday to discuss welfare project for the marginalised communities known as Pakistan Welfare Towns (PWTs). The meeting was also attended by the former Air Chief Sohail Aman.

The Pakistan Welfare Towns (PWTs) is a welfare project initiated by the retired officers of Pakistan Air Force (PAF). It is aimed at providing quality health, education and recreational facilities to the marginalised communities of Pakistan under one roof.

The project greatly inspired the National Assembly speaker, who generously donated the land of more than 100 Acres in Swabi for the PWTs. The speaker has been engaged with activity since long in the direct and indirect contribution towards the project for the welfare of impoverished strata of our society.

The speaker commended the services of Pakistan Air Force for their untiring efforts regarding the materialisation Pakistan Welfare Towns; whereas, the Air Chief thanked the speaker for his unconditional support.

The major focus of the meeting was the decision regarding the timelines of new projects of the PWTs to be launched in all the provinces of Pakistan. Both sides stressed the need for approaching and mobilising the support of International and National Philanthropist organisations.
