Noble Peace Prize Winner Malala Yousafzai reaches Pakistan

Malala Yousufzai, the 2017 Nobel Peace Prize winner, landed in Karachi on Tuesday to travel to Pakistan‘s flood-stricken regions.

During the journey, Yousufzai is travelling with her parents under tight protection.

A Nobel laureate and advocate for girls’ education is currently in the flood-affected regions to bring attention to the destruction brought on by climate change in the South Asian country.

This season’s monsoon rains in Pakistan were more than typical, producing widespread flooding that submerged a third of the country and damaged standing crops, roads, and rail tracks in Sindh and Balochistan.

Yousufzai is anticipated to offer flood relief funding from the Malala Fund.

The Malala Fund gave the International Rescue Committee an emergency relief donation during the first week of September (IRC). The IRC will utilise the money to help flood-stricken Sindh and Balochistan’s girls and women with their psychosocial needs.

In order to ensure that girls complete their education, the cash will also be used to provide emergency education services. Ten damaged government schools for girls will be repaired and restored with funding from the Malala Fund.

The 2014 Nobel Peace Prize winner is in Pakistan for the second time.

When Yousafzai was 15 years old and coming from school in October 2012, Taliban gunmen shot her in the head at point-blank range.

Just last month, a number of influential individuals from Vehari, Rahimyar Khan, and Charsadda renounced their political allegiances and joined PTI.

Over 100 village and neighbourhood council chairmen from Peshawar, Khyber, Kohat, Shangla, Dir, Swat, Chitral, Bajour, Charsadda, and Mardan proclaimed their support for the PTI‘s impending real Independence March last week in addition to announcing their affiliation with the party.

She was injured by a gunshot and taken to the military hospital in Peshawar, but then transferred to London for additional care.

The shooting received strong international criticism.

She has gained recognition on a global scale as a symbol of opposition to the Taliban’s efforts to deny women the right to an education and other rights.

Yousafzai received the Nobel Peace Prize in 2014 at the age of 17 in appreciation of her work for children’s rights, making her the youngest winner ever.
