The Provincial Government of Sindh declared 23 districts as ‘calamity-Hit areas’ of which Sindh Rural Support Organization (SRSO) is present in five (15) districts; Sukkur, Khairpur , Ghotki , Naushehroferoz, Thatta, Sanghar, Mirpurkhas, Badin , Umarkot, Shikarpur, Kashmore-Kandhkot Jacobabad Larkana and Kamber Shahdadkot.. In these districts, not only the loss of crops and livelihoods has occurred which resulted severe shortage of food and clean drinking water. The population which had moved from the affected areas are in dire straits and no humanitarian agencies have reached out to the far-flung areas to meet the basics such as food and safe water. there is dire need of tents, medical aid and clothes.
SRSO in coordination with the respective District Governments is engaged in relief activities with the support of stake holders at their districts. SRSO is using the resources that we have available at hand but it's not nearly enough for what we need. SRSO has launched an immediate response appeal to provide aid to the families affected by this natural disaster. International humanitarian community has been asked to support the response by covering gaps where the needs inevitably exceed the SRSO’s response capacity. Significant funding, planning and combined efforts are required to provide sustainable long-term rehabilitation. The basic opportunities to work for flood affected are provision of funds for construction of shelter and creation of livelihood.
SRSO is now accepting donations from philanthropic individuals, non-profit organizations and corporations. Provide assistance in the priority areas of dry ration, clean drinking water, tents, non-food items, mosquito nets, Clothes, fodder for livestock and medical supplies.
