Diamir Roi Pakistan

With the help of Peter Weixelbaumer, who raised a lot of on the spot budget with his reports and with the help of Hermann Neumaier who could bring the money directly to Manan, we were able to build the cornerstones for the first aid ward in Diamir Roi.


The subsoil and the first materials are being prepared. It was possible to shorten the planning period with the help of Christina Hirber. Similar to Sancho, we want to create a well organized first aid ward in Ser. Also when you look at the landscape and the climate you can see that these two projects are very similar. Therefore it was possible to use the basic plans of Sanco and and adjust them to our region.

First woodworks were done and the area is being prepared. The next steps will be taken in 2010.


The next important steps will be the planning of a water and wastewater system, which is adjusted to the rough mountain region and to meet the claim of sanitation.


Waste water has to be cleared and the water supply must be guaranted throughout the whole year. Next step will be the planning of the power supply.

So the soon next steps are again:
building equipment planning
electric power planning

Realisation with the help of engeneers who likes to travel and visit mountains. To realize this, we plan a volunteer trip to the Diamir Roi valley in September 2010.

Organisation and placing of volunteer jobs:
In the project in Pakistan you can primarily help kids and women as well as older persons to offer them a fair hospital abidance. This social project contributes to improve the aftermaths of former political arrangements and to assist the democratic improvement of the country. A lot of organisations like schools, boroughs, institutions of health and culture are very happy about help of volunteers.

This means we need people who are willing to help on their own costs in a region which is not supported by its own country.

Who can help? Everybody who brings a sort of technical skill and do not need a daily shower. additional to this it is very important that our helpers are physical in a good shape. To reach the building site, a 3 day drive from Islamabad to the Diamir valley. From there you need another 3 days by foot. Two more weeks are then used to help active on the further planning and building.

What we need immediately:

brick layer, designer / planner, architect, electrician, pipe layer, carpenter….
And further we of course need advisors of the medical sector.

After finishing of the building we will try to provide the station with a permanent medic. The function of this person will be to give the needed aid and to train locals. In the first year we will try to find one Pakistan and one European employee.
With the beginn of the second year, the locals should be able to lead the ward. Controlling and financing will still be our challenge.

So the next step is to send a auxiliary which is in action there for 4 weeks. Everybody who has time and motivation is very welcome to contact us. Trveldetails will follow soon.

The date will be:         10. September 2010   -   08. October 2010
More details will follow, in the meantime you are welcome to contact us: info@stepzeropointone.org
