Additional Information

MIRP has been working on relief and rehabilitation in different disaster prone areas of Balochistan since 2011. Research and publication are the most important parts of the MEHRDAR. As per MEHRDAR perspective, literature and art are essentials for countering extremism. We believe that our region is highly affected by extremism, therefore, in order to counter, MEHRDAR decides to work on art, promotion of film making, media and photojournalism culture into communities through youth. We have also started the faculty of MEHRDAR Art and Production in Lyari and Karachi.

MEHRDAR has been acknowledged by the government of Islamic Republic of Iran  for its flood relief programme.
