We are pleased to update you on the continued excellent progress which has been made at the KEMCAANA adopted village at reconstruction after the devastating floods of 2010 in Pakistan at Farooqabad, Basti Gujrat, Muzaffargarh, Punjab.

With your donations and specially efforts of Dr Ijaz and Shazia Mahmood’s family and friends in Louisville forty houses will be completed in a week. We look forward to starting another fifteen houses soon.

The families who have moved in their new dwellings which we saw on our visit in December were very excited to have a dwelling built with concrete blocks which could withstand future calamities. The main room can accommodate up to five beds.

 There is a Verandah which will be multipurpose and for the first time they will have a sanitary bathroom with a septic tank. This will markedly decrease the number of illnesses these villagers contract from poor hygienic conditions.

We are pleased to inform you of a functioning clinic courtesy of APPNA’s donation of 10,000 dollars and volunteer physicians from Pakistan Arab Oil Refinery (PARCO) nearby. Warm clothing and blankets were also provided to the children and the families which were well received and used as cold weather approached.

These houses have been built in the most cost effective manner as we were lucky to have remarkable and enthusiastic volunteers from (PARCO) Mr. Saeed and Mughal and able supervision by Dr Mubasher Rana.

 Moreover the houses are being built at the same locations where previous houses stood and material from the previous house was reused and the home owners provided unskilled labor.

We are also grateful to Dr and Mrs. Manzoor Tariq, who on their visit to the village decided to donate for rooms to be built for women vocational center.

We look forward to your donations to complete our goal for a hundred homes. Please note each home costs one thousand dollars and you can donate for a home or towards a home.

Thank you.
