Flash Floods in Balochistan & Sindh Provinces - 2007

During June 2007, the southern coast of Pakistan was hit by cyclone Yemyin which gave way to torrential rains throughout the region. Due to the heavy rains in various areas of southern Pakistan, flash floods occurred in different districts of Balochistan and Sindh Provinces. The floods were among the worst registered in the past ten years and an estimated 2.5 million people were affected with some 250,000 made homeless. Many schools which were less affected by the disaster were occupied by Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) who were left homeless.

We gathered roughly around a 100 million rupees worth of food and basic supplies and moved the affected out to the shelters. Our volunteers put together survival packets containing food, basic medicines and other survival supplies and distributed these to 2,500 families.
