Minhaj Welfare Foundation steps up its relief operations
Minhaj Welfare Foundation has set up Minhaj Tent Settlement for 500 flood affectees in Noshahera and launched ‘Johli Pehlao’ campaign from today onwards for the help of the flood affected people. ‘Help Caravan’ would start its journey from Lahore on Saturday and would reach Noshahera by passing through Gujranwala, Gujrat, Jehlum, Gojar Khan, Rawalpindi and Islamabad where relief goods would be distributed among the people.
Iftikhar Shah Bokhari, senior Deputy Director of Minhaj Welfare Foundation, expressed these views while addressing a press conference along with G.M. Malik, and Irshad Tahir in the MQI central secretariat today. He said that Minhaj Welfare Foundation is the only organization which took the lead in relief operations. The trucks carrying relief goods have already reached Layya, Karor Pakka, Isa Khel, Rajan Pur and Noshahera. He said that MWF has accommodated more than 3000 affectees in different camps throughout the country where they are being provided with necessities of life. More than 3000 workers of the Foundation are busy day in and day out in collecting relief goods and donations in the country. Iftikhar Shah Bokhari appealed to the affluent sections of society to come forward and join hands with MWF for the mitigation of the sufferings of the stranded brethren.
