Punjab/Sindh Flood Relief

The heavy monsoon rains in 2010 and 2011 brought with it much destruction and havoc in the form of heavy floods in many parts of Pakistan. Many regions were affected destroying the lives of many people. According to the data of Pakistan government nearly 20 million people were directly affected by the demolition of property, livelihood and infrastructure, with a death toll of almost 2,000.

A delegation of Al Hikma foundation on the news of this disaster set foot to visit the affected areas of Punjab and Sindh. As the destruction was great the delegation had to cross many hurdles to reach those areas. They were met with destroyed villages, stranded people and water as far as the eyes could see. Not being let down by these obstacles they went by any means they could, they travelled by cars, trucks and even on foot.

There they met the heads of different villages enquiring about the initial requirements of their people. After getting all the required information the foundation made an aid of food supplies worth of above Rs, 80, 00,000 in Punjab mainly in the districts of Bhakkar, Layyah, Muzzafargarh and Kot Addu.

Similarly food supplies of above Rs.20, 00,000 were provided in Sindh mainly in the districts of Jamshoro, Thatta, Nawabshah, Sanghar and Town of Hala. Due to some hurdles the foundation was not able to carry out much work in the areas of Sindh.
