News Story: APPNA Basti Updates

Date: Sep 25, 2023

The devastating floods of 2022 displaced 33 million individuals in the regions of Sindh, Balochistan, and South Punjab. Rajanpur, a district in south-western Pakistan, faced the brunt of the calamity where more than 1.9 million people lost their homes, animals, crops, and means of livelihood.  

Thanks to donors like you, HDF and APPNA (Association of Pakistani Physicians of North America) joined hands to reconstruct a sustainable community for the flood-affected families of Rajanpur under its rehabilitation initiative: "APPNA Basti."  

With continuous efforts, the construction of 21 houses have been completed for the flood affected community of Rojhan Mazari, Rajanpur, providing a safe and dignified place for the community to rebuild their lives.

In this next phase, each home is now being equipped with solar panels, bringing sustainable electricity to the community. With your help, we're ensuring climate resilient initiatives and transforming lives with every flicker of light.
