Bedding for flood affected Balochistan

In October 2012 One million people in Balochistan were rendered homeless due floods caused by heavy rains.  Gushing winds either partially or completely damaged houses and crops. Over 100,000 acres of crops have been destroyed in villages, with over 220 government buildings including schools, hospitals and offices have been destroyed in Zhob, Sherani, Dera Murad Jamali and Dera Allah Yar Khan. United Nations Resident Coordinator in Pakistan Timo Pakkala, who visited the flood-hit areas of Pakistan, said: “The people affected are among the poorest and most vulnerable in Pakistan and require urgent humanitarian assistance.”

Our local partner Al Khidmat were one of the few teams who stepped forward to give some relief in the cold season by distributing winter packages to those affected by flood in Balochistan.
