Imran Khan Foundation responds to disaster in Thatta and Badin District

Our relief efforts have provided the much needed relief to some of the worst hit villages. Over 2,500 families of Badin were provided emergency food rations in the first two consignments. The misery of the rain affected persons in District Badin has been compounded by the second spell of Monsoon necessitating provision of the more relief items. Over 1000 families in UC Garho, Badin 1 and Rahoki were provided with ration hampers, while more assistance is being planned for the devastated areas of Talha, Tarai and Kadan. Imran Khan Foundation has also provided medical supplies to community based organizations working in the rain hit district.

During the relief work in the villages it became clear that actual needs of the people are far greater than the supplies that have reached in these areas so far. IKF while delivering the emergency relief is looking at the possibility to move on to the rehabilitation work. Our last year’s experiences of seed distribution, and the lessons learned will come handy to do an efficient job to assist communities as they strive to restore some normalacy into their lives and save them from slipping into generational poverty.
In total, it is planned that the IKF relief effort will reach 5,000 households in District Badin. To date, approximately 3,000 households have received relief and it is expected that by September 11, 2011, the we will be able to provide essential relief to displaced families in Mirpur khas, Tando Mohammad Khan, Noshero feroz and Dadu, Khairpur and Ghotki.
