  • SEPLAA Muzaffargarh Trip Report: ’Muzaffargarh, Mud & Me’
  • SEPLAA Muzaffargarh Trip Report ( Quote from Blog article published in ’The Express Tribune’): ”When we got there, there were no relief camps set up  and no other team was helping. There was no governmental presence. As the lone female member of the team, the women thronged me with appeals of aid and asked me to help them with things they could not ask the male relief workers.  Their eyes were begging for compassion and their hands for anything they could take with them.’- Mrs. Ammara Farooq Malik
