He said that the loss was on colossal scale and the time for rehabilitation was running out as the rehabilitation of roads and bridges and the erection of protection walls was possible only during the winter days as the water in the river and streams were at lowest ebb.

Mr. Warraich expressed his pleasure over the awakened civil society of Chitral which was ever ready to contribute development process and extended help to the non governmental organizations as was witnessed during the disasters of flood and quake last year.

He said that the participation of the community in the development process was inevitable for judicious utilization of resources and the CCDN had accomplished a commendable job to establish a chain between different organizations in the district and ensured coordination of their functions.

Earlier, the chairman of CCDN, Muhammad Wazir Khan said that out of 52 thousand households of Chitral, 36 thousand were associated with the umbrella organization of twenty number of local support organizations working in different union councils.

He said that the organization had so far utilized a huge amount of 477 million rupees in different sectors of development and contributed a lot to allay poverty while the projects were identified and prioritized by the communities.
Addressing on the occasion, the general manager of Aga Khan Education Service, Pakistan in Chitral, Brigadier (retd) Khosh Muhammad Khan eulogized the role of NGOs in the development of Chitral over the couple of decades.

To substantiate his claim, he gave the example of his remote Yarkhoon which was devoid of road facility in 1970s when he had to walk on feet for three days to reach Chitral city while the situation has been changed for the best.

He stressed on the NGOs and civil society organizations to ensure development through community mobilization which will provide for sustainable foundation for development.
