Contigency Planning for Rain / Floods 2013

Contingency Planning for Rain / Floods 2013

Provision of Safe drinking water through Bio Sand Nadi Filter , Sanitation & Promotion of  Hygiene conditions In Taluka Matli District Badin.   

Overall objective

·         To prevent the outbreak of water and sanitation related diseases as a result of Monsoon and flood.

Specific objectives

      Ensure access to safe Dirking water through Bio Sand Nadi Filter, hygiene education and temporary sanitation and bathing facilities for the displaced populations, particularly those residing in camps.

     Ensure that displaced populations are provided with basic hygiene supplies and are properly informed on behavior practices related to water, sanitation and hygiene.

Rain and flooding, as a 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.

Safe and reliable 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.

AHD Nadi filter technology can impact during floods/disasters

AHD has capacity to provide 5,000 to 10,000 Nadi filter units during emergency disaster to meet the safe drinking water for 50,000 to 100,000 people within 30 days time period, if provided sufficient funding for the same. AHD is planning to support the most vulnerable communities of the Taluka MATLI District Badin if the Monsoon condition will remain same. AHD plan to install the Bio Sand Nadi Filter units in camps for access to Safe Drinking Water, which is more rare to find for daily use and especially for drinking purpose, and re-built their environment friendly atmosphere the women for cooking purpose. AHD has the leading edge with past working performance in two most important interventions on safe drinking water.

AHD WASH team surveyed the different communities of throughout Pakistan and tested the water sample which villager or people were using for cooking as well as for drinking. The test reports revealed that the water is highly contaminated and very harmful for their health.  AHD made it possible through its innovative technology of Bio Sand Nadi Filter which filter and kill the bacterial germ in its filtration process. AHD trained the trainers from the community and construct a model BNSF at their village then they able to construct at their door step. So BNSF unit secure and rescue their lives by construction of BIO NADI filter, instead of using of canal water.

Humanitarian action under the WASH cluster is based on the principle of coherent and coordinated action in carrying out a timely and consistent response to the humanitarian consequences of major flooding and rain in order to minimize their adverse effects on the population. The effects of flooding and rain may reduce access to basic right of access to food, education, health services, safe housing, protection, drinking water and sanitation.
