IN BADIN & THATTA

DawnRelief Home Reconstruction Programme

In August 2011, villages in Sindh experienced another wave of destructive flooding. Seven million people were affected and over 1.36 million homes were damaged or destroyed, creating further pressure on a population already badly hit by the floods of 2010

In villages spread across 13 dehs in Taluka Golarchi (Badin) and Mirpur Batro (Thatta) an estimated 1,427 houses have been destroyed by these floods, affecting a population of approximately 28, 878 people. Initially we provided tents, food, drinking water and other essential items to as many people as we could and we continuously strived towards increasing this number as quickly and as substantially as we could.

In the long-term our objective is to build a further 1,000 homes across Pakistan. So far for the victims of floods 2011, we have constructed 100 homes (two colonies consisting of fifty house each) in the affected areas lying within the districts of Badin and Thatta and another 100 houses are under construction. While in the beginning of 2011 DawnRelief built and handed over 200 similar houses to the affected families of 2010 floods in 5 villages of Sehwan. We intend to build further houses for affectees in Badin and Thatta destroyed by floods 2011.

Emergency Response:

DawnRelief’s emergency response was to provide food items to the flood affectees of 27 villages of 13 dehs of Taluka Golarchi (Badin) & Mirpur Batro (Thatta) with an estimated population of 28,878.

The construction of these houses and the emergency relief we provide continues to depend on the ongoing generous support of our corporate and individual donor partners.
