UK Supports Pakistan To Develop Recycling Bases For Cleaning Ocean

Published

on

The UK government will support the campaign of NGO Tearfund in Pakistan for construction of recycling bases. The NGO will receive millions to help Pakistan in removing plastic waste from the ocean.

EU-UK Headed for Massive Trade Disruptions?

The UK’s Department for International Development has agreed to grant donation up to 2 million Pound to UK Based-NGO Tearfund. The UK Based-NGO is working to improve the collection and disposal of waste in Pakistan.

In Pakistan, nearly a third of people live below the poverty line and waste is one of their biggest challenges. The uncollected waste in rivers causes flooding and gradually spreading diarrhoea and other infectious diseases. An alternative method of waste disposal is to burn it in the streets, which affects both the health and environment.

The UK government’s aid match scheme, the charity is extending its work in Pakistan’s slums and creating recycling hubs. Tearfund’s representative for Pakistan, Ashraf Mall, said: “Pakistan produces more than 20m tonnes of rubbish each year and in cities like Karachi, two-fifths remains uncollected. The generous funding from the UK government will allow us to transform the daily lives of people living in Karachi and Hyderabad.”

The UK’s international development secretary, Penny Mordaunt informed about Tearfund saying, “Tearfund’s appeal will play a vital role in helping communities across Pakistan recycle plastic waste, stopping it from ending up in the country’s water supply. This work will not only improve the health of generations of people, but it will also create jobs and prosperity while reducing harmful plastic waste and pollution.”
