NCMPR DELEGATION VISITS BHIT AND BABA ISLAND
Team NCMPR (K) headed by Commodore(R) Ali Abbas SI(M) visited Bhit and Baba Islands. Maritime researchers interacted with the residing fishermen community to know the various challenges of their profession. The issues highlighted were the deteriorating conditions of jetties, absence of proper health and sanitation facilities. During the visit, the local community stressed on the need for playing areas for children and proper maintenance of government schools and basic health units. The biggest challenge on these islands is non-availability of freshwater and disposal of garbage facility. The concerned authorities need to address these issues on priority.
