The area surrounding the Circular Railway's route is home to a couple of hundred impoverished families, also known as the Jhugi dwellers. The Save Our Children Foundation asks the Government of Sindh to implement the orders of AC- remove all encroachments on the path of the Circular Railway by removing all illegal constructions. These Jhugi dwellers who live under the bridge do not come in the sphere of the circular railway, their presence harms no one.They live in abject poverty with no water, electricity, or toilets, they are the poorest of our society and should be nurtured rather than displaced! Where will the children who lose their homes go? You cannot have them live on the streets in the middle of monsoons and a pandemic .

The Government has a duty to rehabilitate them; these families have no other homes, most of them sleep on a mat with only the bridge as a roof over their heads.

The Save Our Children Foundation feels responsible for these families as we have opened a DMC school for the children of the area and they are making amazing progress- from begging on the streets they have become happy, educated children on the way to becoming responsible adults .
Sign this petition and help these families to receive the civil rights they deserve.
