Funds to buy relief items for flood victims in Pakistan

Requested by

Action Life Pakistan.

Who are you trying to help? What issue are you trying to address?

Help the victims of the floods triggered by heavy monsoon rains across Pakistan.
At least 178 people have been killed and more than 1.5 million affected.
More than 18,000 of them are living in relief camps while others have decided to take up shelters with their relatives.
More than 850 people have been injured and over 5,600 villages inundated across the country.
Most of the victims are from Punjab and Sindh, the two largest provinces considered the backbone of Pakistan’s agrarian economy.

What is your project and how will it help?

Reach-out action packs with food and non-food stuff to relief the need of 1000 selected and effected people.

MAJOR OCCUPATIONS:
Major occupations of the people in the affected area are farmers and shepherd and work on the lands of the land lords and graze the animals but because of flood the corps are totally destroyed and land is not
worthy for sowing of next season and animals are also flown in the flood that’s why the economic condition of the people is very miserable. They are poor and they were already spending their lives from hand to mouth and the flood pushed them in more critical economic situation. Some of them are working on brick kilns factories.

METHOD OF DISTRIBUTION:
To make the process of distribution transparent and
to ensure the access of deserving people to
the relief goods we followed the following process:
•Double checked the list provided by the government
officials
•We will visited the beneficiaries in camps and the areas where the affected people were staying, their houses were destroyed and they were living in camps.
• We will verified the families and then we will issue a token and tell them the date and place of the distribution
• On distribution day we will reach-out on the spot and with the cooperation of the local government and will distribute the relief goods to the 1000 effected people.

How can other people partner with you on your project?

You could get involved by providing us funds to reach-out action packs to the effected people in Pakistan.
In the action pack:
The food stuff consist of milk, sugar, cooking oil, rice, pulses, white grams, Tea, Dry milk, Salt, onion, turmeric, chilies, mix masala, Tea.
The non-food stuff consisted of utensils, mosquito nets, floor mattresses, hand
towels, bath soap, dish bar, biscuits.

Please detail the resources that you need.

Each ‘action pack’ will cost 35 USD, so we need 35,000 USD for reach-out to 1000 effected people in Pakistan.
