Campaign Completed: The campaign has achieved successful funding, raising through:
- Global Giving through its global Pakistan Flood Relief Fund: $75,000
- Islamic Help: $21,455
The campaign aims to construct 43 resilient homes for 50 vulnerable families affected by the flood, benefiting a total of 315 people.
The devastation caused by the 2022 flood in Mirpurkhas district, Sindh province of Pakistan, was almost beyond imagination. This catastrophic event displaced more than 1,161,392 people and destroyed over 282,533 houses in the district. There exists a significant gap between the demand and supply of aid, as only 21% of the appealed amount has been made possible by the international community to address the immediate needs of the flood-affected people. Today, thousands of affected individuals, particularly those in women-headed households, persons with disabilities, and the elderly continue to live without any support.
We construct resilient homes in flood-affected regions, with a primary focus on understanding the village's history, especially its vulnerability to flooding. Our examination delves into the impact of rising water levels on houses, particularly those near nearby waterways. To mitigate the effects of flooding, we elevate homes to higher ground, customizing housing solutions to meet the specific needs of each family.
