Working in conjunction withinternational aid organisation, Human Appeal, to date, money raised hascontributed towards the purchase of life-saving water purifiers, which weredistributed in the immediate aftermath of the disaster in 2010, and theconstruction of a brand new village, which has been named ‘The Emaan Village’for the people of Rahim Yar Khan, south of Punjab.

Nas regularly travels toPakistan with representatives from Human Appeal International, to see theprogress and the people he has helped in the new village.
