Headmaster (Ret.) Mr. S.M. Azad from Noon Bagla and Mr. Ch. M. Ismail from Khawra Valley were present along with other community members. Both spokes persons expressed their gratitude and satisfaction for the services of AHS Foundation.

 They appealed the Chairman to continue the service under AHS Supervision as the help is facilitating the people, particularly the women and children of vast area of District Jhelum Valley and Muzaffarabd. District Health Officer Dr. Mr. Farooq Awan arrived around 11:30. Among the people he appreciated the services of AHS Foundation and admitted that role of AHS Foundation is exemplary which can be compared to highest standard of services provided in any hospital in the region. He articulated his wish to sign an MOU (Memorandum of Understanding) with AHS Foundation to avoid duplication of services as well as to get access of the records which can help the health department in findings and policy making.
The Chairman asked the DHO to help by appointing an MBBS Doctor and qualified LHW (Lady Health Worker) once alternate week. DHO Mr. Awan accepted the point and requested the Chairman to pay transportation cost of the Doctor and LHW for one day every week. The Chairman accepted the request and asked Project Manager to arrange for that. 

A draft of MOU is constructed and is under discussion of the BODs of AHS Foundation. As soon as the draft is finalized, the Project Manager Mr. Waheed Gilani will sign it on behalf of AHS Foundation and hand it over to the Health Department through District Health Officer Mr. Farooq Awan.

With help of her group, she put forward few preliminary questions about issues regarding women in the area and asked for suggestions for a solution. The majority of women said that women health, and women education is the major issue. Their second issue was the financial situation of the majority of people. The participants collectively requested an LHW (Lady Health Worker) on permanent and daily basis at Noon Bagla and a qualified gynecologist, physician, dentist at least once or twice in a month. Also time to time the medical camps to facilitate the people of remote localities. 
After the casual discussion the President WWO suggested the women to make groups of ladies who can utilize the available resources to produce in livestock and cultivation. The groups would be trained by WWO professionals and a systematic marketing of the production would be the responsibility of WWO. 
The meeting concluded with a declaration that the participants would deliver the message to those who are not present here. Groups of women would be formulated for different activities. 
If the people are willing to share part of the cost of better education of the girls, an academy could be considered to facilitate them.

The initial sense of outrage was soon transmuted into a surge of generosity.; By the end of the day, £5,000 had been raised and the Pro Doncaster Six were able to return home to their loved ones.
