Alkhidmat to construct houses in flood-affected areas


Alkhidmat Foundation under its Tameer-i-Watan Program aimed to reconstruct destroyed houses in the flood-affected areas has kicked off spending an estimated budget of 60 crore rupees. According to a press handout released by Alkhidmat’s PR and Media department, Alkhidmat Foundation has initially issued funds to another 100 homeless families to rebuild their houses in Taunsa Tehsil of Dera Ghazi Khan.

Primarily a target of 4,000 houses will be completed and one and a half lakh rupees have been allocated for one unit of house construction in the first phase, in South Punjab, Sindh, Balochistan, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Gilgit-Baltistan.

People would be provided with construction materials (GI sheets, Iron T-Garder along with essential funds for the purchase of blocks and bricks etc). Allhidmat would issue the amount in 3 instalments by depositing it in the affected family’s bank account to ensure reporting, monitoring and auditing of the home support scheme. Earlier, Alkhidmat had engaged the experts who had conducted surveys in the flood-hit and compiled a report where the houses needed to be rebuilt.
