future looming water shortages and for socioeconomic prosperity of Pakistan.
“Overseas Pakistanis are inspired by the call of the Prime
Minister to support Diamer-Basha Dam project in
Pakistan and they are worried about the worsening water crisis
situation in the country that is likely to become a
humanitarian crisis if vigorous steps are not taken to resolve
the issue”, Arif Anis Malik Co-Founder and Executive Director
of World Congress of Overseas Pakistanis (WCOP) said while
talking to APP here.
Anis was responding to the call for donations by the
Prime Minister Imran Khan to the overseas Pakistanis.
He said the WCOP on the call of the Prime Minister was also organising nationwide fund raising
campaigns in London, Glasgow ,Cardiff and Manchester in
collaboration with Pakistan High Commission (London) for
building dams in Pakistan.
The real purpose of the campaign is to sensitize the

is to build new dams and reservoirs to ward off the looming
water disaster in the country.
He urged the overseas Pakistanis to come forward and
actively participate in the fund raising campaigns and play
their vital role for the economic prosperity of their mother
land.
