Further help to villages in the mountains of Pakistan


Following on from the excellent work that NGO HEED did to construct new water supply systems for four villages in the Neelum Valley, Northern Pakistan, they have now undertaken further projects in the region. In this new phase they are constructing new water supply systems for three communities in Jagran Nullah, whose existing water supply was destroyed during the 2010 monsoon floods. As before the projects are being funded by Borouge under the “Water for the World” initiative and the pipes will be supplied by their local customer Sun International using Borouge material.

Mubashir Niaz, President of HEED, reported in December 2011 that all the projects are progressing well and provided the good weather holds they should be completed by the end of the year. In Batagran and Nattan Pattian villages the water transmission pipeline from the source, high up in the hills, to the storage tank has been completed and they are now digging the trenches for the distribution system to the individual houses in the villages. At the Rayan Seri and Jandar Seri villages about 80% of the water transmission pipeline has been completed and a novel “cable pipe bridge” with a 750 ft long span is under construction to complete the work.
