ABOUT WASEELA WELFARE COUNCIL
Sixty-eight years ago, the Islamic Republic of Pakistan came into existence from the ruins of the most devastating post world war era the world has witnessed. Established in 2006, Waseela Welfare Council has been framed by a visionary and socially well-aware group of corporate experts that realizes its social and moral responsibilities towards the nation. Poverty and deprivation have yet to be overcome. Gross violations of human rights are rampant.Our very existence is threatened by the wanton damage done to our planet’s life sustaining systems. It’s reality that lack of education, rampant poverty, diseases, violence against human beings keep on spreading from distress, trouble, and agony. Waseela has already initiated action on national goals to promote the Human Development Agenda. It has also created a robust mechanism for the monitoring and implementation of these goals and targets. As result, its social services and contribution towards the development and prosperity of the underprivileged masses have widely been acclaimed and appreciated.
Waseela welfare council started in 2006 with the combined efforts of 60 male members and 22 female members belonged to different 207 Nos. villages of Tehsil Phalia, District M.B. Din. Members of Waseela Welfare Council surveyed that there were 207 villages in the tehsil Phalia, where 30% population living at the bank of the river Chenab. They used to be affected by floods every year and their source of income had always been dependent upon harvesting and labouring. They are still leading their lives below the poverty line. This Area is deprived of basic necessities of life. There is no public or private technical education institute. The founding members, first of all, focused on the problems of helpless and disable women. Then this reality came in to the knowledge of the members that most of women of the area were bound to work on the brick kilns due to poverty and unemployment.
For the solution of these problems Waseela Welfare Council established Sahara Vocational Center in 2007 by self-support to provide technical training to the poor disable students, orphans and other needy people. On the other hand Waseela Welfare also worked for basic necessities of this area. And built many streets and funeral places. Fatal diseases were common in the area due to old and poor sanitation system. WWC constructed drainage system, too. On the other hand, members of Waseela Welfare Council surveyed as to find the reason of why drinking water is polluted in the area. Due to abundance of flood and heavy use of pesticides the water had become contaminated. The community of the area was suffering from hepatitis B, C and diseases of kidney. Waseela Welfare Council started the scheme of planting water pumps to supply of water in 2008 and 2009. The organization planted 50 motor pumps for the supply of clean water in thirteen villages. It provided clean water which was also certified by laboratories. Last but not least, in May 2010, Waseela Welfare Council got registered and it started work properly under rules and regulation of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan.
