I think that in the region where I live, people need to monitor the flow of fresh water and its rational use. In problem areas where a shortage of water, it can be easy to accumulate, by precipitation.

I am a inventor of Solar Desalination Plant. I successed in getting a cheaper, cleanest water in a large quantity from a relable method. I improved the conventional solar Desalination plant which produces 3-4 liters water per day. My invented plant can produce 40 liter of water from same area. I worked on this project since 40 years and got patent
It is Feasible to construct with lowest running and maintaining cost. Before Solar Desalination Plant, I also involved in other environmental betterment projects. I started work on Sewage treatment Plant where I got serious of invention, for these efforts an NGO Karachi Industrial Research Group formed. In 1974 My this project was selected by Planning Commission Of Pakistan in the whole country for Research and Development, project ran with collaboration of Karachi University and Karachi Metropolitan Cooperation.
We published Annual report and papers in different National and International conferences. We also presented the working in an international conference CENTO PANEL, Held in 1975
The World Bank team preparing Karachi Master Plan visited our laboratories; they offered to develop a sewage plant in Karachi, by incorporating our developed plant. They also arranged funds from foreign donors but the Sindh Government did not allow.
The US EPA team also visited our laboratory and offered us two projects,
1. Reclamation of water and useful utilization of sewage waste.
2. Treatment and Utilization of industrial Wastes
They selected me as Principal Investigator of these projects. These were granted on my initiated work and in domination of my work and achievements. But due to work conducted under university shelter, and the approval, process from university up to different government departments, the university staff and syndicate eliminated my name from these projects. Later on the University scientists execute this project. They confined the work in the laboratory and totally flopped.
In mean time the country entered into severe political and financial crises. The Planning Commission terminated financial support due to cut in their own budget.
In spite of discouragements, I continue my efforts. In 1989-92, the Mayor of Karachi Dr. Farooq Sattar was very anxious to improve the environmental problems of the city. After satisfied with the working, achievement and our plans they took quick steps and provided me preliminary funds and handover Sewage Treatment Plant at my disposal. But again political instability ceased all the development work of city including our project. Throughout my life I worked for water related project. I am sure my desalination Plant could be the ultimate source of clean water. this is the practical and everlasting solution of water scarcity.

I am a medical student and have been volunteering for Patients' Welfare Association (PWA) for the past 5 years. The organization has been run purely by volunteer students of Dow Medical College, Karachi since 1979, aiming to provide free of charge basic health-care facilities to the poverty stricken patients visiting Civil Hospital Karachi, a public sector tertiary care hospital. Through its Pharmacy, Blood Bank, Thalassemia Day-Care Centre, Diagnostic Lab, TB Clinic and Follow Up Clinics, PWA serves more than a hundred thousand patients each year, setting an excellent example of volunteerism. I love volunteering for this organization because its the best I can do to spend my free time. The feeling of satisfaction I get after observing that a little effort of mine brings smiles on suffering faces is the driving force. And the hundreds of volunteers whom I see serving at PWA are a source of immense inspiration. No doubt, together we can make a difference! Saqib Bakhshi,
Volunteer at Patients' Welfare Association,

A week ago I watched a pregnant woman on one of our local channels (ntv uganda) who had gone to the hospital to give birth. Irresponsible enough, the doctors failed to work on the patient who was experiencing a lot of pain throughout her body claiming that she should first pay shs 250000 (100 usd). This was really bad to the mothers of the countries all over the world. Good enough the doctors were arrested the next day but this showed that our people dont really care about the lives of other people. So from that day I vowed to volunteer some services at some health centers on weekends to improve life.

In my early years of work, I had to be transferred from where I was working in an urban town to a village area. It happened during the rainy season when the road is not so good and most of the journey is either on foot, horse bag or on Lorries if available. The day was one of those rainy days and the car I boarded Had to drop me at the entrance of the village where I was suppose to go and work, there, I knew no person and little did I know that the health center I was suppose to go and work was mile away from where the car drop me. The area was French speaking zone whereas I am an English speaker. I had to ask if they where people who could speak English and the people knew that I was not a French speaker and so they directed me to a home where I met with English speakers.
Fortunately for me, the host knew me and was surprised to see me in that area and asked where I was going, and I told her about the health center and she told me that it was another 1 day journey from where I was. So I had to spent the night with them and prepare for the journey next day. So after dinner, my host told me she will be going to the neighboring quarter where a woman had been in laboring for two days, so I asked if I could follow her to see the woman and she accepted and we went there together. Typical in a village setting is that if a situation like that happen every elderly woman will have to come and stay them until matters are cleared before they can go back to their respective homes. I told my host to tell the husband of the woman in labor that I will like to see the woman and know how the situation is and advice on what to do. That was done and I went in to the woman in labor.
After examination, I notice that she was a pregravider and the labor she was having was a false contraction and that labor has just began because the cervix was about 6cc dilated and that she will be birth normally within the next few hours and so council her and we waited for the labor to progress gradually. When the dilation was full, I asked my host to get back to the house and bring my emergency bag where I had some medicine for any eventuality. In about four hours, the woman put to birth a girl at full term with good Apgar. Fortunately, they was no eventuality And I when back to my host house to sleep. I got up early the next morning by my host who told me that the chief of the village has heard of my story and one to see me in the palace. I when they and realized that the chief was sick and was from the hospital with some drugs to be administered. I helped him administered his drugs and he told me how they are some missionaries who wanted to help his area with a health care but they didn’t have any nurse to run the health care unit for them. He asked me if I could be of help to their village. It was not in my position to decide because I have a board of management. He had to see in the necessary arrangement with the management and It was agreed that I stay they with the missionaries and create a health unit where emergency cases where handled and serious cases where transferred to the district medical hospital. The unit was opened by the district medical doctor in charge of that area at that time. The health unit was running successfully and we had to train other ward aiders to help because the work load was much. As of now, the health unit has a very large plot with a building erected and a well loaded pharmacy.

Je suis diplôme en Gestion de projet et actuellement j’étudie la gestion des Affaires. Je suis Secouriste Volontaire de la Croix-Rouge Haïtienne depuis 2008 et en même temps volontaire/membre du comité local de la Commune de Carrefour pour cette même institution.
Malgré le fait que ma disponibilité est tres limitée, je ne ménage jamais mes efforts et a me porter volontaire dans les différentes actions de la CRH.
Et cela ne m’empêche pas a continuer a chercher d'autres moyens et institutions œuvrant dans le domaine du volontariat, pour offrir ma participation.
Avant j'aimais le volontariat, puisque c'est le moyen le plus sur d’être utile a ses proches en étant convaincu que le seul salaire est la satisfaction des bénéficiaires, mais c'est avec le tremblement de terre du 12 janvier 2010 qu'avait connu mon pays, que j'ai vu le miracle du volontariat et de la solidarité lorsque j'ai vu des jeunes et adultes venus de partout, au services de mes frères et sœurs d’Haïti.
Soyons fiers d’être Volontaires.
