Pakistan Floods

SDTS is working in the Sindh province of Pakistan which is located close to the Arabian Sea, and its main fresh water source is the Indus River. Due to a heavy monsoon season, Pakistan experienced the worst floods in its history, with heavy rainfall and flash floods.

The floods have affected 78 districts in Pakistan, and more than 20 million people have been affected. In Sindh, 19 districts with a population of more than 7 million people have been affected.

We started early recovery of the flood-affected women through agricultural support, to 1000 women-headed households. The women-headed households get seed, fertilizer and agricultural implements (tool kits).

Also, we provided health and hygiene support to the 1500 flood-affected, internally displaced people (IDP) through distribution of soap bars and jerry cans, and dissemination of personal hygiene awareness posters/leaflets among children and women.

SDTS has vast experience in providing flood support relief.

In the 2005 and 2010 flood devastations, SDTS actively provided relief support to 21,000 persons including women and children and provided 1,000 Emergency Tents, 100 Pit Latrines, 1000 Hygiene Kits, 7000 bars of washing soap, 2,000 jerry cans, 3,000 blankets, sweaters, caps and shawls, and established four tent camps of 900 families with camp coordination and camp management facilities.
