In mid-August 2011, heavy monsoon fell once again on Pakistan. This time the flooding occurred further south in the Province of Sindh. Here, large tracts of land ended up under water, leaving thousands of families displaced. The flooding also contaminated the drinking water and left families at risk for a variety of waterborne illnesses.
World Renew responded to the 2011 needs in Sindh providing hygiene kits, mosquito nets, kitchen kits, and stoves to 200 families as well as three months of food aid to 5,000 households through the Canadian Foodgrains Bank (CFGB).
The project in Sindh ran from October 2011-July 2012. In Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Province, World Renew has completed Phase I and II of our response which included food, tents, water, medical supplies, kitchen supplies, hygiene kits, stoves, winter coats, and blankets those in need. This was done through our partner, the Interfaith League Against Poverty (I-LAP). Phase III entails livelihood restoration programs, home repair/reconstruction and a shelter project to provide flood-resistant houses in Nowshera district; this was completed in June 2011.
