A young polio victim has emerged as role model for countrymen in our ongoing fight against increasing threats of climatic changes causing global warming, heat wave and water scarcity, affecting millions of people. KhizarWaliChisti, a young teacher of 32 years age, has successfully planted more than 90,000 plants in almost all the provinces of the country. “I have set the target of planting 10 million trees in the country and so far succeeded in planting 90,000 saplings,” says Khizar whose left leg is paralyzed due to polio. Talking to APP from his home town Pakpatan, KhizarWaliChisti informed that he had also set up a nursery and distributed saplings among people free of cost. I started free distribution of plants in 2015 and distributes 50,000 plants on annual basis among people, Chisti told APP. Being a teacher, KhizarWaliChisti also tries to create awareness among people about importance of increase in green cover for fighting threatening climatic changes impacting health, agriculture and livelihood of millions of people on annual basis. “The prevailing heat wave in Pakistan and India is a serious indicator of highly harsh summers in near future in the region and calls for taking the threat serious not only by government but people as well both male and female,” Khizar opined. If heat wave continues to increase with the same pace and temperature kept on around or more than 50 degree celcius in major parts of the country, how people will bear it and there will be crisis of very serious level for mitigation of which we have to work jointly by creating awareness and taking practical measures, he added.
