Voice of Project Participant - DI Kahn district in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province

Mr. Qamar-ud-Din is 55 years old and a father of four children. He was left with disability due to a traffic accident four years ago and he has not been able to move now. He said his salary was the only source of income for his family. His village is very far from the main city of D.I.Khan. There is no proper road infrastructure and transportation is inconvenient. It was really hard for him to go to major cities every day to earn something. Currently, his livelihood is entirely dependent on livestock, but terrible locust attacks deprived livestock of grazing feed. Livestock is getting weaker due to shortage of feed, but he cannot afford to buy feed.

In this way, JEN's pre-project survey revealed that Mr. Qamar 's life is in a very difficult situation. JEN team provided feed for his cattle and will vaccinate and deworm his cattle soon.

Mr. Qamar said, “On behalf of my family and my community, I would like to thank the Government of Japan, Japanese people, and JEN for their humanitarian efforts to feed our livestock.  Training community members to handle future locust attacks will keep our agriculture and livestock safe.”
