LAHORE - Calamity caused by the recent floods in Pakistan was extremely severe. Millions of people have lost their homes, land and all other assets. Though rehabilitation of flood affectees is well on the way but still a lot of work has to be done. All segments of society should join hands for the early rehabilitation of their catastrophe-hit brothers as thousands helpless families are still waiting for help.

These views were expressed by the LCCI President Shahzad Ali Malik while speaking at a meeting with the DCO Leyyah Javaid Iqbal here at the LCCI on Friday. The LCCI Senior Vice President Sheikh Mohammad Arshad, Vice President Sohail Azhar, MNA Pervez Malik, MPA Mehar Ejaz, LCCI Executive Committee Members Mian Zahid Javaid, Chaudhry Wajid Ali, Amjad Ali Jawa, Fahim-ur-Rehman Saigol, Kh. Khawar Rasheed, Ilyas Majeed Sheikh and Chairman SDC Rehmatullah Javed also spoke on the occasion.

Shahzad Ali Malik said that devastation scale was much bigger and government alone could not cope with the situation. He said that although the nation had never left any stone unturned for the help of their catastrophe-hit brothers but all segments of society should continue to play their vital role in reducing the stress of flood victims. Earlier, DCO Leyyah Javaid Iqbal gave a detailed presentation regarding the rehabilitation work going on under the vision of Chief Minister Punjab Mian Mohammad Shabaz Sharif.

He said that the recent flood had given a big blow to the agriculture sector of district Leyyah and people attached with this sector were in deep trouble.

A World Vision International report encouraged me to share this as there is a very loving effort to help with emergency needs and distribution until the well-off, organized Japanese gov't is able to be less traumatized...Speaking of trauma, World Vision also is helping provide some trauma first aid to the children. And look like their twitter updates are frequent.
