PRCS accelerated the flood relief operation in Sindh

KARACHI: The recent monsoon rains and consequent flooding in Sindh province rendered thousands homeless and affected millions more. 

Early in August, the Sindh chapter of the Pakistan Red Crescent (PRC) initiated its relief operation, which has since been expedited.

Pakistan's Red Crescent, Sindh, has distributed relief supplies in eight districts and is collecting an increasing quantity of relief supplies through relief camps; as a result, flood-affected areas in Sindh are being resupplied.

Soon, PRC-Sindh will establish mobile health units, install water purification facilities, and give cash handouts for food to people impacted by flooding.

Samar Ali Khan, Chairman of the PRC-Sindh Branch, stated in a press release issued by the Media and Communication Department that PRCS National Chairman Abrar Ul Haq announced the provision of food aid to 2,000 flood-affected families and assured the PRC-Sindh Branch of its full support to the rehabilitation of flood victims for a humanitarian cause.

Samar Ali Khan, chairman of the PRC-Sindh, indicated that medical camps would be set up in the flood-ravaged districts of Sindh, along with the distribution of relief supplies.

Tents, mosquito nets, stoves, kitchen sets, jerry cans, tarpaulin sheets, hurricane lamps, shelter tool kits, blankets, jackets, water filters, shawls, buckets, hygiene kits for children and women, etc., have been distributed in Thatta, Badin, Dadu, Shikarpur, Larkana, Jacobabad, Hyderabad, and Mirpurkhas, where flood-affected people were awaiting aid.

In addition, the PRC-Sindh teams have assessed 200 of the most disadvantaged households in the districts of Thatta and Dadu to distribute an unconditional cash award of Rs. 16,000 and non-food goods.

Kanwar Waseem stated that PRC-Sindh has also set up a flood relief camp outside Hilal-e-Ahmer House, Teen Talwar Clifton, where various food industry-related businesses, in addition to the general public, are also contributing food products to flood victims.
