£120,000 FUNDRAISING TARGET IS REACHED AND SECOND APPEAL GETS UNDERWAY
After four years of fundraising, we are delighted to announce that our target of £120,000 has now been reached and a second Appeal is currently underway.
Working in conjunction with Human Appeal International, money raised to date has not only built a brand new village for the people of Rahim Yar Khan, south of Punjab in Pakistan, but it also provided essential life-saving water purifiers in the immediate aftermath of the devastating floods in 2010.
The new village, which has officially been named ‘The Emaan Village’, consists of 60 homes, a deep tube well for clean drinking water, in addition to livestock that has enabled the village to become self-sufficient.
Biogas plants have resolved the problem of energy shortages in the area providing electricity to various households.
"I am absolutely delighted and overwhelmed that we have reached the fundraising target and I would like to thank everyone who has contributed and donated to the charity, from family, friends and work colleagues, to local businesses, schools and colleges, your generous support has been absolutely incredible," said Nas Khan, founder of The Emaan Foundation.
SECOND APPEAL - TO BUILD A HEALTH CENTRE
To further improve the lives of people in the village, a second Appeal is currently underway to build the community a health centre.
At present, people living in the village have to travel hundreds of miles to receive medical treatment. Having a health centre on site will not only be extremely convenient and beneficial, but it will also offer peace of mind to residents.
"A real community is developing in the village - which is very humbling to see - but these people still need our help," said Nas Khan. Working in conjunction with Human Appeal International, The Emaan Foundation will be organising a series of fundraising events.
THE LIFE STRAW
Essential life-saving water purifiers were distributed in the immediate aftermath of the floods. The Lifestraw is a hand held filter, which costs as little as £3 and can provide clean water for up to one year/700 litres, protecting the user from infection, dirt, disease and waterborne bacteria.
With your ongoing support, we will also contribute to the construction of 4 villages in the Rahim Yaar Khan district. This will provide homes, deep water wells and live stock to help rebuild lives and local communities.
