It was August 2011, when 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 had 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.
After emergency response we started our Home & School Reconstruction Programme for the victims of floods 2011 as well. So far we have constructed 215 homes, 130 community washrooms and 2 primary schools in the affected areas lying within the districts of Badin and Thatta.
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 homes and schools for affectees in Badin and Thatta destroyed by floods 2011.
The emergency relief and the construction of houses and schools we provide continue to depend on the ongoing generous support of our corporate and individual donor partners.
