Needs Contigency Planning for Jacobabad 2013

Needs Contigency Planning for Jacobabad 2013

Rain and flooding again started in the 2013 and heavy rain hit Baluchistan and Jacoabad last night. the disaster agent, brings about considerable disruption, damage or destruction on household assets and livelihoods, on community service facilities and on major economic/economic infrastructures such as roads, irrigation schemes, municipal water supply systems, telecommunication and electric networks, etc. However, humanitarian response is primarily concerned with addressing the pressing recovery needs of the severely affected households and communities.

Food, medicine and safe & clean drinking water is vital to every community. Emergency response planning is an essential part of managing a safe drinking water system. Most public water systems have had routine operating emergencies such as pipe breaks, pump malfunctions, coliform contamination, and power outages. These are manageable if the water system has an emergency response plan that can be put into action quickly. More serious non-routine emergencies may result from intentional acts of sabotage, chemical spills, floods, hurricanes, windstorms, or droughts. These can drastically affect the system and the community that depends on it. Preparing a response plan and practicing it can save lives, prevent illness, enhance system security, minimize property damage, and lessen liability. 

Flooding has the potential to deteriorate the health and nutrition situation of affected populations. Severe floods damage safe water and sanitation facilities, create poor hygiene particularly in temporary shelters, and establish conditions conducive for water borne diseases. This amplifies the risk of endemic and epidemic diseases such as acute respiratory illnesses, malaria, measles, relapsing fever and water borne diseases such as acute watery diarrhea (AWD), malaria, malnutrition, and other diseases.

Case Study of Teacher of Sewing center

 

when I (Mrs. Haniffan)  was in school and specially when finished/passed out my matriculation exams I was decided to go more for further Higher Education  and will achieve a respected degree of masters, my ambition was to be a teacher, I was from poor family my father was not in position to support my schooling more, and due to some other concerns I was unable to continue my education, but my ambition was to educate the girls that can’t get education on their own resources or they have not access to schools or resources for better learning. When I was get married in this most backward area kali Mori so that was my second less-luck as well as a new opportunity of educating the girls on any way they need education of sewing and handicraft, here the education scenario was near zero specially in females. My spirit was still alive inside me to educate the children they have no/less resources access to education, but the concern was to establish a platform where I can get start, when Association for Humanitarian Development was conducting an assessment survey in our area of Kali Mori for Sewing Center and their female workers were filling out some forms, and getting information from  our backward area’s  women group including me then I feels and expressed my vision for Educate the female villager about the sewing, handicraft and Health Hygiene Conditions where I can serve as teacher  for the betterment and future of the young girls and female from my area kali Mori  as well as surroundings.

In order to cope up with this imbalance Social difference, AHD has started to establish Women Vocational

Centers by providing teachers and equipment at Kali Mori . This centers is providing skills of tailoring and embroidery to generate their own sources of income for betterment of their living standard. All the activity in this center is monitored frequently by the AHD Supervisor and Program Manager for smooth running of the centers. Due to concerted efforts of AHD more than One Hundred female has been trained from this Vocational Centre in different skills in the year 2012-2013. Now these females are working in their homes for various garments outlets and retail shops and giving financial support to their families.

Thanks to Association for Humanitarian Development, they establish the sewing center in which more than 100 female and young girls are learn sewing cutting and making of handicraft and they sell to market and earn good amount for their home.  Through this women are gaining self-reliance and self-confidence. With increasing self reliance of women who are becoming more confident and independent; they have successfully improved the quality of life and helped them to upgrade their skills. An indication of social change is the increasing number of income generating activities being controlled by women.

SUCCESS STORY of “Rising of New Day”

Emergency Shelter/NFIs Assistance for flood affected families of District Jacobabad Taluka Thul Union Council Mubarkpur was implemented by AHD,    "It was a horrible time; easily the worst moment of my life. The Flash flood came with such devastating power and we couldn’t do anything but run for our lives. My wife was also in the last days of her pregnancy and seriously ill. Unable to carry any of our belongings with us, we headed for the Main Government School Thull. We stayed there for about 15 days which to be honest seemed like a life time." This was the situation of the 26 year old Arif Ali s/o Murad Ali who had 5 children and a wife. He was a resident of Village Mir Hassan Banglani Union Council Mubarkpur, which was literally devastated by the 2012 Flash flood. According to Arif Ali s/o Murad Ali, he was living in a village Mir Hassan Banglani in kacha bricks house.  For bread and butter, he worked as a farmer.  After a month, as the water finally receded, Arif Ali and his family went back to their native village. Upon reaching there he saw that the whole village had been under water. There was nothing left of his own house and the crops he cultivated. He was shattered to see the devastated sight of his village and the surrounding areas. He said. “I saw flood water everywhere. For miles and miles there was nothing but water and an unbearable stench in the air. I didn’t want to feel sorry for myself and my family for this situation we were in. So I started working really hard. I had to save my family because there was no shelter available for us and we had to live under the open sky. My daughter was suffering from a high fever and cough. The harsh weather was making things even harder. We had nothing more left to sacrifice. Everything we owned had been taken away by the terrible floods. We didn’t have any other option but to hope that the All Merciful Allah would create a situation where by someone would help us and reduce our pain and suffering.”This is not the situation of Arif Ali alone; thousands of others share almost the same story as Arif Ali. But with the faith and belief in the Almighty, they were able get through this time of misery. Arif Ali continued: “Allah sent us angels in the form of human beings. Association for Humanitarian Development implementing the project came to us with the promise of providing support at this time of grave need. They gave us emergency shelter Kits, Kitchen Items, Non Food Items and Blanket. Basically they gave us everything that we needed immediately after the floods, and they’ve done what they’ve could and they pulled us out from this disaster of the century and reaching out to the millions of peoples and families like us. They brought support to back and have given us hope. We felt that the sun had again started shining upon us.  We have gained new hope from the support of the AHD team.
