Rs. 200 Million Flood Relief Program Underway

29 Oct, 2014

Following the Chenab River Flood of September 2014, the IKF has sprung into action with its Emergency Response Plan whereby relief has been provided to over 7000 of the neediest and most adversely affected families in 8 Districts of Azad Kashmir and Punjab.    The first phase of the program, which benefitted flood affectees in the Districts of Haveli (AJK), Sialkot, Gujranwala, Hafizabad, Chiniot, Jhang, Multan and Muzaffargarh, is at an end.

The relief package catered to the emergency food and temporary shelter needs of those in the most affected areas.   Also, to combat the increased incidence of water borne ailments and diseases, the IKF has deployed Mobile Health Units to the affected areas.  So far, over 10,000 have received basic and preventative health care.  The program is slated to continue into the month of December.

The IKF Board has made a further decision to supplement the relief program with a rehabilitation program for those poor farmers whose crops have been washed away.  With an IKF Board approved budget of over Rs. 150 Million, it is anticipated that this program will impact over 50,000 poor farmers in the same districts that we have already distributed relief in.  The total approved budget for all flood related activities currently stands at Rs. 200 Million and can be increased by the IKF Board as and when required.

The success of our program this year can be credited in no small part to the community at large, as over Rs. 10 Million have been received so far in donations for this effort.
