Picking up the pieces
All may be lost but I will trudge forward
In the past five years, earth has faced many disasters such as typhoons, hurricanes, floods, earthquakes tsunamis resulting in a very large loss of life; infrastructure and the lives work of countless.
Just imagining losing everyone you love, everything you have worked for and all that you have achieved is all gone leaving you with nothing and wondering how will pick the pieces of my life is heart-wrenching.
The floods of 2010 in Pakistan were one of the worst ever seen in county's history – it has been three years and earlier this year the country faced the floods again but thankfully the destruction was a lot less.
We tend to move on from one disaster to another but picking up the pieces and rebuilding is a long laborious process which takes time.
After the preliminary damage assessment we set up a school in Habit Mastui, District Dera Ghazi Khan in Southern Punjab to educate the children of the flood affectees who were left with literally nothing and were trying to rebuild their lives in whatever way they could.
We are trying to help out in whatever means we can by adopting the families of that area. The setting up of the school and the education it provides will prove to be a strong base for the future of the students studying there.
It has been a tough as the location of habit mastui is in the interior of the province of Punjab surrounded by small villages and the initial zeal of new donors does diminish over time.
Today we ask for your support to help us expand and sustain the project – We ask for a long term commitment, a commitment to be with us when a child of five graduates from school through your help.
Through this platform, we don’t ask for your donation, we ask for your lifelong commitment
