The Federally Administered Tribal Area (FATA) of Pakistan was struck by severe flooding in 2017. The Chinese government launched a reconstruction project in the FATA by using the South-South Cooperation Assistance Fund after the disaster and provided humanitarian assistance to the victims.
Lahat and his family live in the FATA. His father was in poor health for a long time and passed away while the family was trying to escape the disaster. His mother has had to raise four children on her own. Lahat and his family received basic living supplies and said they no longer have to worry about the cold winters thanks to blankets and food from China.
