FLOOD RELIEF AT DADU 2010
Almost a decade ago, Sindh was hit by a catastrophic flood that made many devoid of basic necessities. Many people lost not just their homes but also their loved ones, leaving them with no shelter over their heads, let alone have access to clean water, food or clothes. It was then, that our volunteers took it upon themselves to help those in sheer agony. They traveled long miles to the outskirts of Sindh, reaching Badeen and then Dadu, to do everything in their might to provide relief to the affectees of flood. In August, 2010, our team of volunteers reached their destination where they took up the task of providing not just fresh clothes, food and medicines to flood victims but also made sure that their normal lives were restored. They mapped out their plan and executed it in 3 phases.
The first phase included them stocking and distributing clothes; sacks of clothes were first brought and then distributed among the villagers.
The second phase was one of the most noteworthy efforts which was carried out, it was the installation of a mobile water filter plant in the area; this was to ensure that everyone could have safe drinking water wherever they were located.
The third phase was followed with them visiting disaster struck places in order to assess the damage. They provided rehabilitation to families who suffered great losses, by giving them a place to live. They manually built mosques and houses with limited resources, providing shelter to many. Distribution of food and ration was carried out, bags being distributed to almost 878 families, belonging to 17 different villages. These packets included 10 kgs of flour, 5 kgs of rice, 3 kgs of pulses, 1 kg of oil and other small things.
Volunteers faced many obstacles in their journey but never gave up; from living under unsanitary conditions to masking their identities, they never let their spirit run dry. These efforts done almost a decade ago by them are still cherished and remembered, not just by us, but also by the people of Badeen and Dadu.
