UWT paid off the family debts of these people and set them free from their waderes (landlords) after a long negotiation process. The families were brought to the New Muslim Welfare Association centre, where a small ceremony was held to make dua lead by Maulana Yaqoob Sahib. They were then treated with light refreshments. After the short ceremony cash donations, utensils comprising of buckets of water, thermos, water jugs, tea packs, cooking pots etc were distributed among them. Food items such as chickens, black tea, sugar, flour, matches and other basic essentials like quilts, clothes, shoes and sports item like bat, ball, volley ball, football were distributed among the families and children to help them start a new life. The families were then transported to new Islamabad City Islamic training centre. These families will be living in the training centre for 4 months to learn the Islamic way of life and other rituals. During this period they will be served with free food and accommodation as well as the children will have access to education free of cost. After the course these families will be set free to lead their lives according to Islamic rituals and practice. Ambulances Two ambulances were received by Ummah Welfare Trust (Pak) office during the period of reporting period. These ambulances are very useful for us in emergency situations i.e. road accidents, any emergency situation occurred in Ummah Children Academy where 335 children (orphans) are residing for education. Also in case of IDPs needed to be shifted to various locations we can use these vehicles.
