British HC visits flood relief camp in Nowshera.

Islamabad, The Gulf Observer: British High Commissioner Christian Turner on Saturday visited flood-hit villages in Nowshera, where a UK charity, Islamic Relief, is providing lifesaving aid to flood-affected people.

The High Commissioner also visited the village of Kakol Abad and met with the affected communities. He expressed his sorrow at the losses incurred during the flooding and assured them of the UK’s continued
support, said the spokesperson of the British High Commission in Islamabad.

Speaking to the media, British High Commissioner Christian Turner said:
“The people I have met today are strong and will rebuild. But they need urgent support with water, sanitation, and shelter. The UK is helping provide that. The standard you walk past is the standard you accept. “

Accompanied by Islamic Relief Worldwide’s CEO Waseem Ahmad and Islamic Relief Pakistan’s Country Director Asif Sherazi, the High Commissioner witnessed first-hand the devastating impact of the climate catastrophe.

Expressing solidarity with the people at the camp, the British High Commissioner reaffirmed the UK’s commitment to Pakistan and observed the community’s challenges and efforts to support those affected.

He visited Nowshera, days after the UK announced an additional £15 million to help affected communities. This money will be spent for urgent lifesaving support and will go towards water and sanitation, shelter and home repairs, and primary healthcare, especially for women
and girls.
