On the directive of the chief of the air staff, the PAF is constructing over 650 houses in all four provinces of the country. The project is to be completed by the end of February.
PAF’s rehabilitation plan for flood affectees commenced simultaneously in Charsadda and Nowshera in KP, Mianwali in Punjab, Jacobabad in Sindh and Balochistan on December 5. The handing over ceremony in Mianwali marks the continuation of the third phase of a comprehensive PAF plan to assist the flood affectees. Similar ceremonies will be held at Peshawar, Risalpur and Jacobabad by regional air commands within the next few days.
With the onset of floods in the country, PAF rescued the stranded flood affectees and provided them with relief goods in Phase-I, subsequently in Phase-II, it relocated and looked after the affectees in flood relief camps established by PAF at Sukkur, Bakhtiarabad, Mianwali, Pir Pathu, Jacobabad and PAF Academy Risalpur.
Presently, in Phase-III, PAF has launched a rehabilitation plan in which free of cost houses and household items are being provided to the flood affectees. These are under various stages of construction. The chief of the air staff considers this as a small contribution of the PAF for our countrymen and women who have been affected by the natural disaster.
