TNW designed two separate projects, single room and two rooms’ shelter. 

Two Rooms Shelter: In Layyah district, these are complete homes comprising of two bedrooms, veranda, kitchen and bathroom.  30 Target beneficiaries were most needy and vulnerable families especially, shelter less widows, orphans, disables or poor parents with large number of children particularly girls.

Single Room Shelter: In this category TNW provided single room construction material. 100 Affected communities of districts Muzaffargarh were benefited. During the survey of shelter less people (floods 2010) in UC Kotla Haji Shah of district Layyah TNW team identified a family headed by Mr. Allah Dad, comprising of 22 members. Old man with his three wives and 18 children was living in three separately fixed tents and bearing severe winter. TNW took initiative and constructed a complete home for this vulnerable family along with provision of required WASH facilities.

Model Village:

Sobaywala was a village of UC kotla Haji shah of District Layyah comprising of 500 families. During the devastating floods 2010 almost half of the populations lost their homes along with land due to erosion.  Affected families were living in borrowed homes of landlords where they were continuously under mental and social stress especially women and children were facing hardships. TNW identified such families and put efforts to resettle them. The houses were built on a single shared location (kukar wala) like a small village with other requirements especially proper sewerage and arrangements for clean water. The renovated & reconstructed village was named “Light House Village” to compliment and acknowledge its donor association from our brotherly Country Turkey, project was funded by Deniz Feneri (Light House Association).
