Part of the MDAUK needs assessment surveys has been consultation with the local populace and national and international aid organisations to see how the resources of MDAUK can best be deployed for the local people. Increasingly MDAUK has been approached by organisations wishing to deploy their aid in Pakistan by using the trusted local infrastructure that MDAUK has developed since its inception.
The Kidmah Group in Derby wishes to use some of its finances to rebuild houses in the flood region and has decided to do this by using the local infrastructure of the MDAUK which has developed particular expertise in the construction field due to its experience in building their hospital in Muzzafarabad. The village identified for this project is Muhib Banda Pabbi.
Today the MDAUK Peshawar team revisited the village of Muhib Banda Pabbi to measure the boundary walls in preparation for the rebuilding of some of the houses devastated by the floods. The first phase will involve rebuilding the boundary walls and washrooms for an initial 15 houses. It is expected that the completion of these boundary walls and washrooms will occur by the 6th of October 2010.
These initial houses are on the periphery of the village but it is envisioned that houses in the centre of the village will also be build once the first phase has been complete.
