Qatar Charity (QC) has constructed 12 homes in the Khairpur district of Pakistan's Sindh province for the families affected by the 2022 floods. The construction of the homes comes with the support of philanthropists in Qatar as part of Qatar Charity’s housing efforts, especially in disaster and crisis-affected areas. These houses were handed over to the families who lived in tents without the slightest necessities of life.

Each of the constructed houses includes two bedrooms, a kitchen, a bathroom, a courtyard, and a boundary wall, in addition to providing water sources, solar energy, and sanitation facilities for these homes.

Qatar Charity, through the construction of these houses, aims to provide a secure and sustainable shelter for the affected families, who were facing harsh climatic conditions and suffering from problems related to protection and family privacy.

This initiative reflects Qatar Charity's commitment to promoting sustainable development and offering support to those in need around the world, especially for those affected by disasters and crises.

On this occasion, Mr. Fayaz Hussain Abbasi, Commissioner of the Sukkur Division, expressed the happiness of the local authorities with the implementation of the project for the affected, praising Qatar Charity's efforts in providing permanent shelter for them. He also extended his deep gratitude to the donors who supported them, confirming that the houses have been handed over to the deserving recipients.

Beneficiaries expressed joy upon receiving the houses. Mrs. Saeeda Khatoon, a widow and mother of seven children, said, “I lost my husband and home in the floods, and we had to live in a tent where my children suffered a lot in the hot summer and cold winter. I work as a daily wager and can not afford the cost of building a house. However, I had a dream of having a home, and I am very happy to say that I have received my own house from Qatar Charity, which has become a source of realizing my dream.”

Mrs. Alisha Begum said, “I work as a daily wage laborer with my husband. After losing our home in the floods, we were living in a tent under the open sky without electricity or water. Today, I feel overwhelming happiness because I have received my own cement-built house. I express my gratitude to Qatar Charity and the benefactors who have made our lives easier.”
