WELFARE

At IWS we have created a community atmosphere and our aim is to make the lives of the locals as easy as possible, for this reason we endeavour to assist the locals with any welfare issues they may have.  We found that many families were struggling financially and due to this were unable to fulfil their duties such as carrying out nikkah ceremonies for their family members.  As this is a religious obligation IWS provides financial assistance for families for this purpose.

The Welfare Complex is also used as a cold room to store deceased bodies and to wash and prepare them for burial. This is a very important facility provided by IWS as the area of Azad Kashmir is of a hot climate for most of the year and bodies need to be transferred to a safe place for them to be prepared and for the burial to take place as quickly as possible, an important social and religious requirement. IWS also uses its ambulance for this service.
