LinkRoad PEACE Project Batkhela District Malakand

“A poor grass cutter, Raieez, aged 32, died last summer due to heat wave as he couldn’t reach hospital in time because there was no road linking his village to the hospital” recalled Mohammad Irshad, a local of village Asghar Shah, located 40Km from main headquarter Batkhela District Malakand. The village’s main livelihood is agriculture and it was difficult for the villagers to carry their farms’ produce to the local markets. In addition, the children had to walk approximately 4Km a day to their schools. Now the joy of the beneficiaries is immense since the road has been constructed by SRSP under EU PEACE project. The road is benefiting more than 250 households, vehicles have access to village and farmers can load food crops to the market. Establishment of road has improved access schools and hospitals.
