ALKHIDMAT WINTER RELIEF ACTIVITIES
During the beginning of the new year, the winter wave that begins in early December becomes severe. The temperature of northern Pakistan, Balochistan and Gilgit Baltistan drops to -15 degrees and even lower. Cities get covered with white snow. Water reservoirs get icy and cold wind blows.
Rich enjoy, whereas the poor beg to breathe. In such terrible circumstances, Alkhidmat gives winter relief to them. Let's discuss this in detail.
What are the problem locals are facing?
The biggest issue of the locals is they are poor and unable to buy the stuff necessary to survive. Since the temperature drops too low, the ordinary fabric is not enough. Warm, thick clothes specially made for this frosty season are required to wear to avoid frostbite and other conditions.
Other than clothes, one of the biggest problems is road blockage due to snow. Vehicles carrying food, medicines and other goods need help to enter the cities. The roads are covered with snow which later converts into ice, assisting accidents and putting many lives at risk.
How does Alkhidmat help locals in winter?
Keeping in mind all the daily necessities in challenging winter weather, Alkhidmat provides various items to the locals, enabling them to survive on the chilling days and nights of the deadly cold climate.
Alkhidmat volunteers are distributing winter packs:
Most local Pakistanis need thick winter clothes and sheets to cover themselves up. They also can not buy food to warm up their bodies. Alkhidmat foundation designed a winter pack that contains some winter essentials to help them.
Following is the list of the goods included in winter packs that Alkhidmat volunteers are distributing;
- Warm clothes ( sweaters, jackets, socks, gloves and scarfs)
- Blankets, quilts and comforters
Alkhidmat volunteers are cleaning snow from the roads:
The blocked roads create hurdles in helping locals. Alkhidmat's trucks and wagons filled with winter relief goods and other vehicles needed help reaching the residents. Our brave volunteers did not wait for support from the government and started to clean the roads using heavy machinery.
