When the Honorable Chief Justice of Pakistan, Mr. Mian Saqib Nisar initiated a worldwide donation drive for the construction of the very necessities of Pakistan, the Diamer-Basha and Bhasha dams.
One man’s mission has now transformed into the collective ambition of an entire nation and millions of Pakistani’s around the world are proud owners of this drive that will make a real, transformative impact to the lives of our future generations. IAPWM’ is determined to motivate Pakistani’s at home and the diaspora overseas to fundraise sufficient funds globally to build the critically needed Dams in Pakistan.
There is no question that we are faced with several significant problems. Our debt today stands at Rs30,000 billion but the biggest problem we currently face is the water crisis. When Pakistan was made, every Pakistani had 5600 cubic meters of water. Today that stands at only 1000 cubic meters. We have storage capacity of only 30 days for water when the safe period for water storage is 120 days. India has a capacity of 90 days. This is why making the dam for us is so important.
