"We have undertaken different projects for emergency relief in Pakistan. However, this project is focused on the blind. There are 1.8 million blind and partially sighted people in Pakistan."

Months after devastating natural disasters, Pakistan remains a country in need of aid, but now humanitarian agencies have move from aid relief to rehabilitation of the flood-ravaged country, which has been in a state of emergency since floods hit last year. The Al-Imdaad Foundation (AIF) just returned from its latest relief mission to the region where they worked with Madrassatun-Nur for the Blind and the Pakistan Disabled Foundation to start reconstructing homes. According to AIF spokesperson, Qari Ziyaad Patel, the joint project aimed to rehabilitate those affected by the floods last year. "We have undertaken different projects for emergency relief in Pakistan. However, this project is focused on the blind. There are 1.8 million blind and partially sighted people in Pakistan," he said. The AIF partnered with these two organisations as they work solely for the benefit of the blind. "Everyone who works within the company is either blind, partially sighted or other disabilities, so it was very interesting to be able to work with people who we may think have difficulties doing ordinary tasks." The organisation has also taken the initiative to help the people in the area to rehabilitate homes. "We had quite a heart-wrenching experience throughout Pakistan where we assisted in rebuilding some completely or partially destroyed homes. There were millions of people in Pakistan who lost their homes and belongings in the floods and for them to be blind as well adds to the set backs they experience," he related. A long term sponsorship from Oasis for rehabilitation relief in Pakistan is helping to make their work easier, the alim said. "As Oasis has come on board, we hope to have brand new homes in the country very soon." VOC (Aqeelah Bawa)
