KARACHI: Health and Nutrition Development Society (HANDS) has planned to build one thousand model villages in eight districts affected by the recent floods in Sindh and Balochistan, chairman of the NGO and eminent child specialist Dr. Abdul Ghafar Bllo said on Wednesday.

The floods affected 13 million people and for their assistance they set up 500 relief camps and provided relief including eatables and medical facilities to 175,000 people of 35,000 families, said Dr. Ghafar speaking at a function organized by Rotary Club of Pakistan.
