London (News Desk) - Minhaj Education Society has launched Minhaj Khaima schools in Akora Khatak and Noshehra for the children of flood hit areas.

The society is providing relief to the flood affected families in Akora Khatak and Noshehra in the relief camps. Member of the governing body and tv artist Usman Pirzada inaugurated the school set up by the society in Akhora Khatak camp. Also present on the occasion were Director MES Shahid Latif, Director MWF Pakistan Iftikha Shah Bokhari, Central Secretary Information Qazi Faizul Islam and Sajid Mehmud Bhatti.

The members of the affected families informed Usman Pirzada on the occasion that they have been provided electricity, water, fans and cooking facility. The children showed Pirzada their drawing and painting work.

Usman Pirzada said the MWF relief work for the stranded people is quite laudable and the spirit of its workers is exemplary which spoke the sagacity of Dr Tahir-al-Qadri.

Director MES Shahid Latif said full and part time teachers have been acquired for teaching the students at camp schools so that the students dislodged by the floods from the homes could continue with their studies. Books and note books have also been provided to the student and the schools would continue as long as the camps existed.
