Malala arrives in Karachi to visit flood-hit areas
KARACHI: Pakistani Nobel laureate and education activist Malala Yousufzai along with her parents reached Karachi on Tuesday morning to visit the flood-hit areas across Sindh.
Malala and her parents travelled on Qatar Airlines flight 604 and she came out of the airport the police provided her complete security.
She was also transported to her Karachi residence in heavy security.
There are reports that the Sindh Home Department has issued directives to make strict security arrangements for Malala.
Just last month, the Malala Fund issued an emergency relief grant to the International Rescue Committee (IRC), aimed at providing psychosocial support to girls and women in flood-hit Sindh and Balochistan.
The funding will also cater for the delivery of emergency education services to ensure girls continue their education. The assistance from the Malala Fund will help repair and rehabilitate ten damaged government schools for girls.
24-year-old Malala got shot in the face by the Taliban when she was just 15 for refusing to waive off her right to education and has since resided in Birmingham where she was airlifted for treatment after the assassination attempt.
