KARCPP to fund water supply schemes


King Abdullah’s Relief Campaign for Pakistani People (KARCPP) will provide funds amounting to US$ 1.6 million to UNICEF for clean drinking water to benefit nearly 84,000 people living in the flood-hit areas of Balochistan.
According to KARCPP Regional Director Dr Khalid M Al-Othmani, a memorandum of understanding (MoU) has already been signed in Riyadh between KARCPP and UNICEF to provide maximum help to the people affected by the floods that hit many parts of the Balochistan province. He said 76 clean drinking water supply schemes would be initiated in 10 districts of Balochistan. These water schemes were damaged during the 2010 floods that hit almost all parts of Pakistan. It is pertinent to mention here that KARCPP has done a lot of work since the start of the campaign for the areas affected by floods in 2010 and 2011.
