The military said in a statement on Sunday that Chief Of Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa visited Balochistan’s Lasbella district and inaugurated a prefabricated village in Lal Gul Goth constructed for flood victims of the area who lost their homes.

“The new prefabricated village includes a primary school, is lit by off-grid solar power, and is also provided with a tube well. The Frontier Works Organisation (FWO) completed this project in record time as this was promised to the villagers by the Pakistan Army,” the statement added.

According to the ISPR, Director General FWO Major General Kamal Azfar briefed the COAS on the status of the flood victims’ rehabilitation efforts.

The commander of the army got to know the instructors, pupils, and residents of the recently renovated Lal Gul Goth primary school. According to the army chief, the Pakistan Army will keep making every effort to hasten the rehabilitation process that is being carried out with the support of the federal and provincial governments.

Later, Gen. Bajwa interacted with the Quetta Corps, FWO, Frontier Corps (FC) Balochistan, and Pakistan Coast Guards and expressed his gratitude for their assistance with the recent flooding rescue, relief, and rehabilitation efforts.
