Sponsored By Rukhsana Foundation And APPKI From March 2011 onward
Flood In Jaffarabad
As the Indus River remained in exceptionally high-flood situation, Jaffarabad, and more villages in this district were inundated due to breaches in protective embankments and canals. From the Initially available reports around 50,000 people in 30 worst hit villages are affected by the flood.
After a wide breach in Tori embankment along the Indus River and breaches at three points in Begari Canal, 80,000 cusecs of water entered Jaffarabad district, inundating the area into 10 to 12 feet of water.
Hundreds of thousands of people were stranded in Rojhan Jamali, Sohbatpur and Usta Muhammad. Since the floods started, an extraordinary humanitarian crisis has developed and people are faced with new challenges. After having assisted hundreds of flood-affected people, Rukhsana Foundation, working in collaboration with the local community is providing basic food items, hygiene kits, tents, mineral water, medicine, warm clothes, blankets, fertilizers and seeds. The construction of permanent shelters also started in August 2010.
Keeping in mind the rehabilitation of the affected people, Rukhsana Foundation is pleased to introduce micro economic activities and skill development in these areas, however funding for these activities is urgently required.
The Recovery projects in the Flood areas are currently funded by Rukhsana Tahirkheli
Foundation and APPKI, but more emergency relief is still required and rehabilitation activities have to increase on an immediate basis. These projects are vital to get the people back on their feet hence more funding is required.
Almost 90 villages have been badly affected by the floods in district Jafferabad and Naseerabad. Despite several relief activities from local Government, health departments and NGO’s, ongoing activities are not enough. In District Jaffaerabad several aid activities are in place, but much more still needs to be done.
The total expenditure in this area up to August 30, 2011 and List of Beneficiaries is as follows:-
