    Taking notice of a report about the plight of a flood-affected family of abnormally small persons (dwarves), Maulana Muhammad Idrees, chairman of the Ummah Welfare Trust (UWT), UK, directed the office-bearers of the Pakistan arm of the UWT to fulfil all their needs, says a press release issued here on Friday.
    Following the directions, immediate assistance was provided to the family and construction of their flood-affected house was started in Nowshera.

    Maulana Muhammad Idrees directed UWT Country Director Muhammad Inayatullah to personally visit the family at their home and provide all possible assistance to them. Inayatullah visited the family with ration for five months and an announcement for the construction of their house. The organisation took the responsibility of permanent provision for the family and bedsheets, kitchen accessories, clothes, shoes and food items were supplied to them.

    Two-and-a-half feet tall, Bismillah, the head of the family, expressed his gratitude to the UWT on behalf of his family. He said UWT chairman had exceeded their expectations with his generosity. UWT Country Director Inayatullah while talking to media persons said that he had been directed by the chairman to put aside all other activities and visit the affected family to provide them assistance. He further told that an assistance of more than Rs500 million had been provided to flood victims in Pakistan and construction work of 1,400 houses had also been launched, which were planned to be constructed in flood-affected areas throughout the country.
