Recently HOPE-an NGO in Pakistan installed 1 new Hand Pump and 2 toilets with the funds donated by Ms. Alizeh.
Ms. Alizeh joined hands with HOPE-a Health NGO in Pakistan to help people get over the hurdle of walking miles to get water, by installing a hand pump in Dastano Jano, Ikhtiyar Goth. The handpump is dug deep approximately 200 feet down the ground level using heavy machinery to bore water up above the ground. She associated this act of kindness with the name of her son, Mr. Zedan Munshi.
The Handpump was installed in Ikhtyar Khan Goth, where approximately 60 families reside and each family consists of 5-6 members, that accumulates to a total sum of around 330 people at Iktyar Khan Goth.
The two toilets were constructed on Gul Hassan Goth, where approximately 50 – 60 families reside, and Haji Muhammed Goth, where approximately 30 families reside, situated at Link Road Area. A total sum of about 540 local villagers will benefit from this facility. This will improve health and sanitation conditions in the area. In this locality, this is the first step taken by HOPE for locals to live in a clean environment. One of the bathrooms were constructed at Gul Hasan Goth where approximately 50 – 60 families reside
Ms. Alizeh communicated with the local people to know more about their living conditions. They told her about the problems they faced in meeting basic needs of life. Ms. Alizeh and the HOPE team were welcomed by the fellow villagers especially the women there who expressed their love and appreciation by giving them Ajrak (Cloth) which is considered as a traditional Ritual in the village.
