Karachi: Gulbahaos, an NGO, has stressed the need for use of recycled material for assistance of flood affectees.

Nargis Latif of Gulbahaos in a letter to president elect Mamnoon Hussain said her NOG has developed “Chandi” blocks from recycled material which are modular and from which makeshift can be built in just a few hours. They are all weather proof, strong against the elements and cost effective.

The raw material which is the clean plastic waste of Karachi’s factories is being brought to us at our doorsteps by some of these factories.

Gulbahaos intends to garner support from different strata of society like traders, professionals, educationists, etc to make this idea popular in the country. She said at this stage we need the moral support of the government.
