Probably in May 2011 honorable Dr. Amjad Saqib Chairman “Akhuwat” and his companion Mr. Sheikh Shahid Hassan Visited the city of Kot Mithan sole purpose was the rehabilitation of Flood affectees, the most flood hit  areas of Kot Mithan was New Abadi and Basti Gharib Abad.  After visiting these places they observed that the population is living in miserable conditions. The God fearing peoples decided at the moment that they will construct the shelters “Houses” for these peoples. When God shower the mercies he selects the ones from the millions. Thus, God chosen peoples decided to construct the houses for them. However, after some brief discussion the honorable Guests unanimously decided and assigned this task to me for monitoring this project. I felt great pleasure for becoming the member of this team. I started the job with the blessing of God knowing my weaknesses. After few days I started my journey to Lahore with complete feasibility, Architectural work expense detail of the project. I met with Mr. Shahid Hassan one Team leader of Dr. Amjad Saqib; he gave me hope for early completion of the project.  I also met with Honorable Dr. Amjad Saqib in this regard. I came back to my home after discussion with these peoples. There were actual problem was that Basti Gharib Abad was very much down the level of the Road, a lot of earth filling was required. We have already done a lot of job during and after flood 2010 regarding helping peoples in different ways.

My Young Volunteers Team Members was consists as:

  1. Sajid Hussain Panwar
  2. Mian Ahmad Raza khawajah
  3. Munwar Hussain
  4. Ahmad Yaar Korai
  5. Mukhtiar Ahmad Korai.

 Very short but vigorous team was ready to completing the task assigned to us by honorable Donors. We divided the tasks among the team.  Providing Material and completing the project well in time was assigned to Mr. Sajid and Mr. Khawaja while on site monitoring assigned to Korai’s. The project was started on 6th of June.  We started the work on war footing, the task of earth filling, foundation of the houses which were very difficult and time consuming job done within stipulated time frame. It was also participatory work the owner of the houses of every age i.e Young, Old Women and old men even children were also involved in labour work for minimizing the cost. They were doing in such a passion, actually they were strengthening our passion. Some snaps are attached for analysis. Stage wise pictures of houses are also attached for your analysis. During work progress Mr. Shahid Hassan and Mr. Rao Saadat representing “Akhuwat” visited the site in the time of Holy Ramzan that is sacred month of the Muslim community. They decided that we should give food, clothes and other necessary item for poor family of flood affected peoples.

In this noble cause the local NGOs was also participated i.e Peace Development Organization of mine and Help Foundation. With the participation of donors we have planted the plants in courtyard of the houses of flood affected peoples. They also announce that we will give the loan to the needy people without markup for making them self sufficient.  Pictures are also attached. Later on Muslim charity (UK) has also distributed food item among the flood affectees. Pictures are also attached. I have involved diversified jobs for well faring the peoples of Kot Mithan. Anyhow, on 15th January 2012 the project has been completed within record time period. Total 60 units were constructed; every unit consists of one bed room with Bath and courtyard.  Every house has been completed in all respects even white washing sewerage system and underground drainage linked with main line through PVC pipes donated by Help Foundation. Now the population is living with honor and praying day and night for the donors.  In Feb 2012 the Houses handed over with keys to the poor peoples of Basti Gharib Abad and New Abadi.   

The houses constructed as provision of the land owned by the peoples.  Total cost of the project was Rs. 8,400,000/- (84 lacs) it was very economical project as other project running in the same city. Due to donor busiest schedule we did not take time during work progress. So we staged a program for our valuable guests on 17 July 2012. The Guests were come in the city of Farid (Saint) Dr. Amjad Saqib, Mr. Shahid Hassan, Mr. Nadeem Malik, Mr. Usman Ashraf. The Donors were enthusiastic that in the honor of holy Ramzan Food, clothes for women and children and other utilities distributed among the poor family in the presence donors.  This was the sincerity of personal interest of the donors and my team player. I salute all these peoples who joined the hands with me for completion of this project.

I am really thankful to honorable Dr. Amjad Saqib specifically Mr. Sheikh Shahid Hassan and other donors of this project. I am also thankful to my volunteer young team in connection with this project. I am proud of my team players.  During the process any mistake committed by me it has been considered as human err and forgiven this act. I apologize all of my mistakes and inadequate knowledge and hope it will be rectification in future. Thanks

Flood Affectees after Rehabilitation

Riaz Ahmad s/o Noor Muhammad

Ghulam Shabir s/o Khan Muhammad

Our houses were situated outside the city, in front of river. When flood came at night, we were present at the spot of flood. Water destroyed everything, we hardly save our lives and children and we remained unemployed till one year after flood victim. We worked hard to feed our children. We worked day and night for food. Then we both participated in AKHUWAT, two year ago we had already donated Rs.15000 for AKHUWAT fund. We were very happy when Dr. Amjad Saqib called for the first meeting of AKHUWAT in Kot Mithan then we did not know that we can also face such difficulties. We have ruined due to flood, then AKHUWAT Provide us newly constructed house, when we have lost our hopes. Now we pray for them May ALLAH bless them, May ALLAH forgive all of our mistakes. May ALLAH bestow all pleasures of life because they love His Creature?

Muhammad Ajmal s/o Muhammad Anwar . And Khadim Hussain

Basti Gharib Abad is poorest segment population of the Kot Mithan city where there is no basic facilities of life and infrastructure as well. Peoples were living in mud made houses and tent houses like stranger in their own country.  Just before two years when flood directly hit to this poor basti of the Kot Mithan, peoples hardly saves their lives and runs away to safer places under the open sky in harsh season. After 9 months when we came back to destroyed houses we have no plan of future. One day God sent renowned Social activist city of Khawaja Sahib I means Mr. Kamal Farid Malik and Khawaja Kaleem ud Din Koreja with Great Personality Dr. Amjad Saqib Chairman “Akhuwat” approached to our destroyed houses. To see peoples in miserable condition they promised with all poor family to construct the houses for them. We considered it as peoples are coming with so many promises. Luckily after few days Mr. Shahid Hassan and Kamal Farid Malik came to us for completing their promises. Later on the team has got basic information from peoples and financial position. Within a few days the work has started and we were so happy we have no word for that.

Widow’s Story

I can’t recall my past when we had got through overwhelmed event of flood 2010.  It is the blessing we met such God fearing peoples who had the tender heart for the creature. I am old widow living with 5 married persons along with 15 children. I feel weaker member in such a society where there is no right of woman, who can’t survive with such a big family. Flood snatched our small house. We were hopeless and were bound to live in the open sky within a tent house for more than year. We feel great pleasure when we saw kind hearted peoples promised to give us constructed home. I mean Dr. Amjad Saqib and his dedicated companion with Kamal Farid Malik Social Worker and the son of the soil. May God fulfill their every wish in life as they give hope to the frustrated peoples?  

Ghulam Shabir s/o Rasool Bakhsh

In the last flood we have ruined was wandering hopelessness. No one was taking care to anybody else. We were without shelter because our mud houses ruined away by flood. Fortunately, God send His angels from earth not from heaven in the form of Dr. Amjad Saqib, Shahid Hassan, Kamal Farid Malik and other companion. First class material was used and well furnished houses handed over to us we can’t believe on such a miracle happened on earth. Akhuwat Organization arranged small loan for us. Unemployment removed from our town everybody was happy doing his job, we have killed poverty with the help of our donors. We will never forget our benefactor.

Mobeen Ahmad s/o Khurshid Ahmad

I am handicap have lost my one hand. But I face the challenges of life; I have been struggling to meet the requirements of my family.  I never feel hindrance before my life targets. One small hut was the only shelter of my family and we have been living in this happily. When flood hit our cottages and runs away from us that we never live over there. There was no hut in the area remained in original form. Everything has ruined. We were bound to live on railway station without shelter.  When we came back to our homes nothing was there except the piles of mud. One year has been passed without feeling even remains without house. One day I heard news that some peoples wanted to make our house without taking any penny. I met with Mr.  Kamal Farid Malik for inquiring about the rumors. But he   makes me clear in this regard; I go back with hope to my family. Kamal Farid Malik Sahib told us that some   God fearing and friend of humanity are coming for sponsoring this project. Dr. Amjad Saqib and Shahid Hassan from Lahore are constructing our houses. Best material was used under the strict monitoring of Kamal Farid Malik and his volunteers. Now we are living in these homes of love donated by these peoples. God Bless them for all the seasons.      

Phathani Mai and Muhmmad Bakhsh

In front of flood water, everything was devastated and we can’t stop them at that time.

There was a huge destruction in the history of Kot Mithan as our forefather tells us. Two event of Eid we celebrated in the open sky and tent house provided by Kamal Farid Malik who is real son of soil. He continuously provided us food medicine as required by us. When we came to our house after a year nothing was there. This was the actual challenge before us but how we can construct because all poor people of basti Gharib Abad. Few selected angels were revealed by God to help the poor one. Dr. Amjad Saqib Sahib, Shahid Hassan Sahib and their companion came with message of love tolerance and hope of living in our city of Khawaja Ghulam Farid the famous Poet of the southern Punjab and great Sufi saint.  In few months the poor peoples of Gharib Abad were living with their families in newly constructed house. They are praying for their long lives.

Bakhtawar Mai W/o Mureed Hussain

There was great devastation in the city of Kot Mithan in 2010 when flood directly hit to the forefront town of the city. We just escaped off from cruel waves of Indus River. Everything has been ruined. We were bound to live in the open sky and remain in the tent house more than a year. We compromised with life that we may live in this form of life. But God knows better, if God Send Troubles send also blessing along with the troubles. Angels are present in the shape of human being. We have been moved from tent houses to newly well constructed homes within few months after a year. In 2011 we were on the pile of mud. It was beyond our thinking that some God fearing peoples come into our city particularly in this poor area of the city. God loves with his creature especially with human being. Dr. Amjad Saqib and His companion took the challenge and remain successful. Now we are living in our house in best state as before. Thanks to team of Dr Amjad Sqib.  

 

Comments ... By Khawaja Kaleem - ud - Din Koreja

President Khawaja Farid Foundation Kot Mithan

 

There is untellable story of devastation of mine. There was a one million question before us that how we will rehabilitate so much population. But the saying is there “where there is a trouble, there are some blessing also”. We have joined “Akhuwat” before this wreck. Flood 2010 was highest level flood in the history of Kot Mithan.

We were looking towards the friend of humanity means Dr. Amjad Saqib chairman Akhuwat Foundation for taking over this great job for rehabilitation of such huge population of district Rajanpur. He was already decided to this job it was wonderful for me because we were just thinking but the man has decided.  One day I received a call of Dr Amjad Saqib Sahib that he is paying the visit to our city with some dedicated companion from Lahore. They visit us in the intense season of summer. After seeing the destruction of flood they decided there houses will be constructed in few months. It was great pleasure for us for rehabilitation of poor peoples of Kot Mithan. The question was that who will monitor the project. The selection was ultimately on the man of crises Kamal Farid Malik. Everybody was praised that the right selection for right job. He was earned repute during the flood even in the eyes of CM Punjab. District Management was also seen the effort made by this ever young heart man. Kamal Farid Malik was man who fights with waves of Indus River at the last moment for saving city of Khawaja Ghulam Farid. He proved himself that he is the real son of the City of Khawaja Sahib. High profile politic was against this man but he did not care about and continuously doing his job what the peoples are thinking. He knew what he has to do. Dr. Amjad Saqib sahib put the responsibilities till the completion of this project on the shoulder of Mr. Kamal Farid Malik who really right person for this task.  The project was completed in record time period under the supervision of the Man. He has a dedicated volunteer team and he involved this young team for this task. I appreciate for those volunteer who have contributed their valuable time in this project. I am very thankful to Mr. Shahid Hassan Who moved from the land of Data Sahib to the land of Khawaja Sahib. It is great job done by this man. Mr. Shahid Hassan showed his love for the peoples of all races but we can understand what he has done for us. We have no word to paying tribute to the reformer of the day.
