Famed designer Maheen Khan known for fashion labels such as The Embroidery House and Gulabo has spoken up on the water crisis that exists in the Tharparkar district of Pakistan.
Maheen shared images and articles of children and families suffering from the drought that has been ongoing since 2011. The district is also low on doctors and medicine which means there is a lack of enough resources for their medical treatments.
The designer tweeted, “I am struggling to put this in words but why have we become so numb, so immune to the suffering of others – in this case, the children of Tharparkar. They are dying of lack of water.”Gulabo mastermind then requested Chief Justice of Pakistan Mian Saqib Nisar and Prime Minister Imran Khan to look into the matter and come up with a solution.
