What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
Isolated villages in Skardu & Ganche districts,in Pakistan, were extremely hit by the floods. So far, there are 55 deaths,105 house damages and thousands of cattle damages registered.Roads are blocked, inter village bridges are damaged, internet connection is cut, there are shortages of all food itens, drinking water, fuel and Kerosene Oils.Death and damage numbers will probably raise and there is a high risk of epidemias.Bad weather has made it impossible for rescue teams to reach affected area
How will this project solve this problem?
GRACE has been engaged in rescue and relief works; evacuation of threatened villages; and contacting humanitarian organizations for help.To carry out the work, we need tents, blankets, food packets, clothes, safe drinking water and other items.
Potential Long Term Impact
Provide immediate relief items including water, food, shelter and clothes support to flood victims in isolated villages in Pakistan; enable evacuation to safer places; and help reduce the risk of epidemias.
