A BRADFORD restaurant chain is helping to fund a clean water project in Pakistan.

The Aagrah group, which has 22 restaurants across Yorkshire, has funded one water filter plant for a church in the Bihar colony as part of a New Horizons project.

The New Horizons charity was founded by Yaqub Masih, a Pakistani Christian from Huddersfield, who recently flew to Pakistan to oversee the opening of the three new water filter plants in Lahore which will provide clean water for 9,000 people every day.

Haji Sabir, who is chairman of the Aagrah Group, told a130-strong gathering of business people from across the region last month: “We want to stand with New Horizons for all the good work they are doing in Pakistan.”

New Horizons works to bring Muslims and Christians closer together.
