Long after most people have forgotten about the devastating impact of the September 2014 floods, we continued to offer our help in assisting the families who had lost their homes. In the past few months we completely rebuilt 3 homes with help of (Rs 9.54 Lacs) from Revive Kashmir USA), and assisted in the reconstruction of 20 homes – 13 of them with the help of (11.8 Lacs ) Australian Kashmiri Association and 7 with the help of(Rs 9.87 Lacs) British Kashmiri Charitable Fund.
There are many more new things on the way and we will update you on those shortly. Thank you.

Once spring arrives and trees are planted the place will be a green haven for the children.Read More
