With an aim to extend timely support to the distressful, needy and stranded people of the flood affected areas, the family of Late Mohd Pahelwan, a prominent figure of Barkas area begins distribution of food packets in different areas.

For this philanthropic cause, extensive arrangements was made at Omer Function Hall, Barkas wherein all the food items were prepared under the supervision of  Saif Bin Maqbool Yafai, the elder son of Late Maqbool Bin Umar Yafai and Sikander Bin Mohammed Yafai, the elder son of late Mohd Pahelwan.

The philanthropic drive kicked started from Sunday i.e. on 18th October itself soon after the Gurrum Cheruvu Lake developed a breach resulting into a flood that swept away the areas at downward direction such as Omer Colony, Hafiz Baba Nagar, Gulshan-e-Iqbal Colony, Phool Bagh and Aaliya Garden.

The drive will continue tomorrow to reach out distressed people. We always stand with the people in need in their testing time,” asserted Saif Bin Maqbool Yafai.

“This is really a tough time and the need of the hour is to stand with the flood affected people smarting under tribulations due to Saturday night flood that rob them with whatever wherewithal they have with them before the calamity,” said Ahmed Bin Abdul Khader Ballasqa.
