SUCCESS STORY OF MRS. KARAM BIBI

A 76 year old lady, Mrs. Karam Bibi lives in Village Soomar Soomro Union Council Mubarkpur Taluka Thull District Jacobabad Sindh 45 km far from the Jacobabad city and 20 kilometers far from Thul Taluka Head Quarter. She become ill 3 – 4 months back and has been bed-ridden for the past 3 months. She is unable to walk, sit or change her position in the bed and was very malnourished. Actually, she had a fall as she tried to escape the flood waters. No fracture was seen, but due to pain, weakness, psychological trauma and immobility she was confined to bed. One day, the Association for Humanitarian Development’s medical team visited our village and we sought advice from them. The team doctor listened to her story, gave her a thorough examination, prescribed medication and taught us how to do exercises with her that would help strengthen her body and encouraged the family to take turns sitting with her and cheering her up. After about 2 weeks we were very surprised to see the improvement in our grandmother. We had visited many doctors in Thull and Jacobabad but we hadn’t noticed any real change. But whatever medicines the AHD doctor gave her seems to have given her a new lease of life. Our grandmother is now able to sit up, go to the washroom (with support), has started eating again and has become her usual chatty self. We are deeply grateful to the Association for Humanitarian Development medical team for working this wonder. Our grandmother had almost given up all hope of getting better, not a day goes by without her saying a prayer for the team and the work they are doing for flood affected families. She is the joy of her grandchildren and they are hers.

As well as responding to emergency needs within its own programs, Association for Humanitarian Development (AHD), together with its partners, plays a crucial role in influencing decisions that are made by other organizations – governments and multinational and international institutions – that have vastly greater capacity to deliver significant response and reconstruction results. AHD’s approach is always to secure the best outcome for people living poverty, providing a conduit through which their legitimate concerns can be raised at a high level. In delivering a response to a natural disaster of this scale, it is essential for AHD to work collaboratively and effectively with others – with the Government of Pakistan and with other local and international NGOs. This involves different standpoints and opinions and sometimes difficult discussions, so recognizing and respecting alternative approaches and keeping lines of communication open are essential.

AHD has helped to provide shelter for over  people. Its initial activities took place in Taluka  Matli District Badin Sindh Pakistan between 2011 and 2012, where it provided an immediate response in the acute, post-Rain flood. The massive floods then spread to southern parts of Sindh to Upper and Lower Sindh, to Kashmore, Jacobabad, Shahdadkok, Jamshoro, and Thatta. Here, shelter kits consisting of plastic sheeting with rope, nails, bamboos , a small toolkit containing a hammer and saw, bamboo poles and  wheelbarrows, were distributed to families so that they could rebuild their homes in advance of the cold winter months. In Matli, where people had more time to evacuate, AHD provided smaller, more portable kits, intended to aid reconstruction as people returned home. AHD is conducting a pilot project to adapt and strengthen houses in Matli, Sindh, to enable 6500 households in 320 villages to make their homes less vulnerable to future flood situations. AHD hopes that this pilot will be seen by others as something to replicate in other flood-affected communities, with help from NGOs.
