Hasara Yaseen Zai
In reference to the previous post, the location map of Hasara Yaseen Zai (courtesy: UNOSAT) has been uploaded. It is located in the patch of land right before the Swat and Kabul River merge.
On returning to Lahore, we sat down to revise our proposals that were forwarded to SRSP. Opening Google Earth to locate Hasara Yaseen Zai turned out to be much more beneficial than expected. Google has not yet updated its maps in the affected regions of the Indus. So we have deployed a team of students to download hi-res Google Earth images of all affected regions. To avoid later on disputes of land divisions, these maps can be forwarded to local organizations alongwith the proposal of rehabilitation. In conclusion, it is possible that we can redevelop the villages to resemble what was there prior to the floods.
Below is the Google Earth image of Hasara Yaseen Zai village before it was affected by the flood water.
