Syed Ali Shah:
QUETTA: Dr. Alia Haider, a beacon of resilience from Quetta’s Hazara community, emerged victorious at COP 28, securing the Frontline Climate Health Award. Her unwavering commitment shone through as she organized medical camps in flood-stricken regions of Sindh and Balochistan last year. Despite countless challenges, Dr. Haider’s efforts earned her the prestigious award at the summit in Dubai.
In an exclusive conversation with Daily Quetta Voice, Dr. Alia Haider expressed immense joy, stating, ‘This recognition is a source of great pleasure for me.’ Her dedicated services during the merciless floods, which claimed numerous lives and displaced thousands in Naseerabad, Jaffarabad, Sohbat Pur, and other Balochistan districts, garnered well-deserved acclaim.
Notably, Dr. Alia Haider shares her commitment to humanitarian causes with her sister, Jalila Haider, a renowned human rights activist in Balochistan. Their collective impact resonates as a testament to the power of community service and resilience in the face of adversity.”
