I write this email with mixed emotions of joy, Gratitude, pride and happiness.
The first glimpse of Nur Goth was a very emotional and surreal experience. This village has been named after my beloved daughter Nur who we sadly lost following a heart operation on 19th July 2012. We were very touched and honoured when Dr Iftikhar announced that MDAUK and PMA had decided to name this village to honour the memory of our daughter. Nur was a truly blessed soul who always had a smile on her face, and had the ability to brighten up the most darkest and bleakest hour through her smile. She had the enormous ability to carry on in the face of worse adversity. Nur symbolised hope and Light.
It was very heart-warming to see families already settling into their new homes. I could see smoke coming out of the kitchens and children running around in their new homes with their very own boundary wall and a proper gate. It is likely that for the first time in their lives, these families have experienced the luxury of running water in taps , attached bathrooms, electric fans and light bulbs ( these will be powered by Solar Panels).
