PFBPW Housing Scheme Project
Aftermath of horrific flood in Pakistan in 2010, in which mud and grass houses were washed away with all their belongings, the importance of building durable houses of concrete for every family, as a minimum shelter from all extreme elements, natural or manmade, is now clear and an urgent need! To meet this need, we are building basic concrete houses in two villages. Each house costs Pak Rs125,000. We need your support to meet the costs. Details of the on-going projects are as follows:
Our first housing scheme was in the village of Kale Wali Basti, Bhong, near Rahim Yar Khan, in response to Flood 2010. 18 houses have been handed over to families whose entire belongings were wiped out. Now another six houses and a girl school are under construction.
18 Houses donated to flood victims at Kale-Wali village near Bhong Masjid
A village, Haji Abdullah Goth, near Gharo has been adopted.
Twenty four houses (18ft x 14ft) and a girls’ school are planned to be setup.
As an acknowledgement of their support and generosity the donors’ name will be imprinted, on a plate above the front door.
The allottees are also required to set up a vegetable patch, a fruit orchard, maintain a poultry farm, or some other economically useful activity with their houses. In this way, it is hoped that the owners will have food for themselves and the surplus can be a source of income.
All construction work is supervised by staff hired by BPW.
Six houses have already been constructed, and the keys handed over to the recipients.
Another six houses are almost ready.
Each house costs Rs.125,000/-. Donations may be in the name of Pakistan Federation of Business & Professional Women’s Organization (PFBPWO).
If any donor wishes to visit the site, they are welcome to contact Mr Akbar at the office.
