Additional Deputy Commissioner Nowshera Qurratulain Wazir is being praised for her efforts to rehabilitate and cater to the people affected by flooding in Nowshera.
Social media users have taken note of her on-site presence and are praising her for personally visiting flood affectees in the rehabilitation camps. She has also been walking around at-risk neighborhoods in Nowshera trying to get people to evacuate in time.
Pictures of Qurratulain show her wading in knee-deep water and walking through muddy fields with virtually no protective gear save for a walking staff. Videos are circulating showing her going door-to-door personally asking people to evacuate their houses.
People on social media have been saying that the reason Nowshera remained safe from extreme flooding is because of the efforts of Qurratulain Wazir and her team.
Qurratulain, who hails from South Waziristan, has previously made waves for being the first female magistrate for the Cantonment Board of Peshawar. She was celebrated for her fierce independence and for being a symbol of women empowerment.
