My little brother Zakria (known to his friends as “Zack”) has been missing since July 17th 2014. He left for a trip to Turkey on July 13th. He contacted us several times during the first couple of days to let us know of his whereabouts. However, since July 17th we have no more news of him. His last known place of stay was in the city of Konya / Turkey. We have sent him several messages and he has not replied to any of them. He is the type of person to always give us news which is why we are so concerned. Our family has tried everything and we ask that if you have had any contact with him prior to his departure or during his visit in Turkey to please contact me or my sister Barine Habibi Nazir or brother Mustafa directly via e-mail, or send us a private message. Please help my family get through this difficult time by sharing this post on your wall and leave it open to the public to see, and ask your friends to share this as well.

Mon petit frère Zakria (mieux connu sous le surnom «Zack » par ses amis) est porté disparu depuis le 17 Juillet 2014. Il est parti pour un voyage en Turquie le 13 Juillet, depuis son arrivée nous avons échangés plusieurs messages entre nous. Par contre, depuis le 17 Juillet nous n’avons reçu aucune nouvelle de lui. Le dernier endroit ou il se trouvait lors de son dernier message était dans la ville de Konya / Turquie. Nous avons continué à lui envoyer plusieurs messages, mais nous n’avons toujours pas eu de réponses. Il n’a pas l’habitude d’agir ainsi, et c’est la raison pourquoi nous sommes si inquiets. Notre famille à tenté de son mieux pour le retrouver, et nous demandons l’aide de nos familles, amis et public afin de pouvoir le retrouver. Si vous avez eu quel que contact que ce soit avec lui avant son départ ou durant son voyage, nous vous prions de nous contacter moi ou ma sœur ou mon frère dans nos courriels respectifs mentionnés au bas de ce message. S.V.P. aidez notre famille à traverser cette période difficile en partageant ce message sur votre mur et demander à vos amis et connaissances de faire de même afin de nous permettre de rejoindre le plus de gens possible.

KARACHI: The CSR Brands of the Year Award 2013 has been won by the Aga Khan University Hospital, Karachi for its indigenously designed solar shuttle. In a statement issued here on Sunday, the Brands Foundation presents the awards, which each year shortlists over 1,000 popular and trusted brands in Pakistan from which a winner is selected for each category. This is the first time that AKUH has won this CSR award. The solar vehicle is part of the University Hospital’s shuttle service fleet facilitating the movement of visitors and patients between the different service buildings. The 6-days-a-week service has been operational since late 2011, with the solar vehicle added to the fleet last year.
The idea of using a solar-powered vehicle was first tabled in 2012. “We had already designed and built golf-cart type shuttles using our own design. We now needed transport vehicles that were eco-friendly and reduced the use of fossil fuels,” recalls Mehdi Bawa, manager of AKUH’s transport department.
A solar-cum-electric shuttle, one-of-its-kind in Pakistan, was developed with the assistance of a local firm, Water Security Company Pvt. Ltd., and commissioned in November 2013. A replica of the five petrol shuttles already plying across the campus, it saves the University Hospital 3,000 litres of petrol a year. If each litre of gas produces 2.5 kg of CO2, AKUH saves 7,500 kg of CO2 or 7.1 tonnes of green house gas emissions annually. The shuttle is one more step towards reducing the impact of campus operations – and part of a commitment by the University Hospital and the Aga Khan University to operate in an environmentally sustainable and socially responsible manner. As part of its ‘green’ plan, AKU has installed a highly sophisticated incinerator to safely dispose of its infectious waste while meeting European Union clean air emission standards; by-product heat from the incinerator is used to meet almost 50 per cent of the campus’ hot water needs. and LED street lights which utilize only two to eight watts of electricity per light and last 10 times longer than regular lighting, have been installed across the site.
