Flood Relief 2011 – Mission: Badin



The recent rains have caused tremendous damage in the southern Pakistan region of Badin (Sindh) and Balochistan.  NDMA estimates over 8,788,000 people have been displaced damaging over 6.5 million acres of land. These floods have caused 1.4 million homes to have been devastated, dislocating over 750,000 people into makeshift relief camp while thousands more remain in the open without a roof . Hundreds of villages were swept away due to flooding from a 200 foot wide gap in the salinity drain there. The Pakistan Army has launched a relief operation in Sindh and are attempting to shift these people into makeshift camps

Upon hearing of the situation PkRelief, an organization based on the partnership between the Offroad Pakistan and SA Relief went into full action by reaching out to the local community and infrastructure to determine what is needed. As an organization we have worked on several  relief efforts since 2005 and have a strong local contact base. In 2010 alone our organization collected and distributed relief valuing well over 170,000 USD for the flood relief efforts.

Presently we have adopted 3 camps in Badin, Sindh with the support of Nishat Welfare Organization whom have already housed 1,000  IDPs. Our plan initially is to provide the IDPs with cooked meals for the next 15 days.

Please donate generously. Thank you for your support. Every dollar counts.
