First Project of rehabilitation: Successfully accomplished

As earlier I had posted that we have now started the rehabilitation process for the flood affected people. And for the first project, we have successfully helped to built six houses for almost forty people to again start their routine life in the area of Sajawal. These are some pictures of construction of those houses.

We further want to continue this rehabilitation work as more families are still in need of help in order to rehabilitate their lives once again, but we are short of funds. Also, there upcoming the winters and flood victims are in urgent need of warm clothes and other necessities as we all know that Nights in Sindh are so cold during winters. We have also planned to collect funds as much as possible till the Eid-ul-Azha which is coming in mid of November and to provide as much aid to those flood affected people as we can. I therefore request to all of you that please don't think that there is no need to help further, still there are thousands of people who are suffering for a single meal, the change in weather also has spread some serious diseases and they still are waiting for our help, so please spread this word and join our hands to facilitate them and their needs.

Plan of Rehabilitation

As I had discussed earlier that now we are moving towards the rehabilitation plan. For this purpose, different team members have different tasks. We wanted to have a detailed survey about the people, places and other important things.

Last Sunday, Dr. Kashif visited Sajawal, Makli, Bathoro and Daro for this purpose. As an initial phase and using as a model, we are helping six families to build their houses. We have planned to build three cottages, two wash rooms and a hand pump. Estimated cost for each cottage is 110,000 to 125,000 Pak rupees.

We have got funds of around 315,000 rupees and trying for further. Here are the some videos of the affected areas, after effects of flood, areas where houses will be built and affected people mobilized from camps.
