Rural families affected during floods 2013, still looking support from outside
AHD striving hard to support flood victims at their door step, in this regard AHD staff conducted a survey in villages near Matli and New Danbaloo areas of District Badin, during visit staff seen different families catching fish from local ponds, the ponds made via natural rain water or drainage water. Upon discussion with local people catching fish from drainage ponds, people share that they do not have anything to eat, that is the reason they collecting small fish from natural ponds and nearby water canals to feed up their children and family. The poverty increased in the flood affected areas and the families affected during floods 2013 still facing hard to get sufficient food for their family. AHD wants to support the rural families and hope to receive donations for this purpose

AHD is working in Jati area district Thatta since 2004-2005, since 1999 to 2007 was water shortage and in 2008-2009 also low water for irrigation and farmers cultivated only 10 to 25% of their agricultural lands. In the year 2010 super floods hit the Sujawal and Jati area and almost all 100% crops and houses submerged in flood water. Again in the year 2011 & 2012 heavy rain spell damaged crops and 80% population become very poor regarding crops, livestock, food and shelter.
Again in the year 2013 late arrival of irrigation water affected almost 80% tail end farmers and majority of framers do not cultivated rice crop or still busy to cultivate some 25% of their lands for rice.
The flood 2013 again disturbs thousands of farming families, the project posted will help flood victims the plan for the next 3 months is to provide;
Food package 200 families US $ 5,000/=
Medial camps 30 7,500 families US $ 7,500/=
Total Budget required US $ 12,500/= in three months time period
The above package will help poor vulnerable families to start working in their agricultural lands and cultivate crops and vegetables, AHD will encourage people to have
Snaps attached to see the situation of flood victims, need your support for their livelihood security, we do our best to support target families and provide them with food and medical within short time period
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.

Formation of Village Development Committee (VDC)
Community Assistance Committees/ (CAC) Village Development Committee (VDC) is two step processes; it is a committee of people of village, who represent the whole village, highlight the issues and problems of village which they need to solve. The first step in formation of Community Assistance Committees/ (CAC) Village Development Committee (VDC) is to have an introductory meeting with the community of respective village in order that both parties should know each other very well, in introductory meeting; we briefly explain them about our project work, procedure of work and duration of our project. Introductory Meeting: - In introductory meeting, first, representative of Association of Humanitarian Development (AHD) arrange recitation of Holy QURAN PAK. After recitation of Holy QURAN PAK, AHD team introduces themselves and their organization (AHD/ERF) with community. After introduction AHD team offers them that you should also introduce yourself with us. (The purpose of this introduction is to start getting feedback from community). AHD team tells community more about their working areas that we will work on and Temporary Shelter and NFI (Kitchen Utensils) support to most vulnerable household with the consensus of community. We ensure community that if you co-operate with AHD, then AHD could start its project work as soon as possible at your village.
Identification of Beneficiaries
In each village after the process of Community Assistance Committee / village committee formation, with the support of village committee identify the beneficiaries. When all the beneficiaries were identified by village committee then AHD team register them and at last AHD team verify those beneficiaries in household level. And in the end Final Selected Beneficieries list share with communities and that list was endorsed by CAC/ VDC.
Training of Fuel Efficient Stoves
Association for Humanitarian Development (AHD) is becoming increasingly concerned about energy issues in communities, camps, or settlements where internally displaced persons (IDPs) are settled temporarily. At a minimum, all displaced people require fuel to cook, and the manner in which fuel is obtained and used can have significant impacts on displaced populations, host communities, and the surrounding natural environment. Firewood always is in high demand for traditional methods of cooking. Fuel-efficient stoves (FES) can have many positive impacts in a camp, Temporary settlement, or other IDP setting. These stoves can help save energy, reduce the time and burden of collecting firewood, and limit the associated exposure for collectors to physical attack and/or gender-based violence. Because traditional open fires can be very unsafe in crowded camp or settlement conditions, FES can reduce the risks of uncontrolled fires, as well as burns suffered by cooks and children. FES also has the potential to reduce the impact of health problems related to smoke inhalation. In many cases, cutting trees, shrubs, and roots for fuel can lead to the depletion of forests and environmental degradation in areas that host transient populations. Fuel-saving stoves can slow the degradation and help ease tensions over the use of, and access to, these natural resources. During the emergency phase of a natural disaster or complex emergency, affected populations at a minimum need water, shelter, protection, food, and the means to cook food.
Reduced risk or incidence of gender-based violence
By reducing the amount of fuel households need to cook their food, FES can, in theory, result in a reduction in fuel-gathering trips undertaken by household members—usually women and children—thus reducing their potential exposure to violence and abuse. To report on this objective, you will need to monitor the number of trips and amount of fuel your beneficiaries are collecting. Because it can be difficult and time-consuming to demonstrate that the FES directly results in reduced risks of harm, exploitation, and abuse to the targeted population.
Reduced risk of house fires and burns
All fuel-efficient stoves contain and control fire in some manner. This containment can help reduce the risk of materials catching fire from open flames, fires started by cinders or embers, and burns from open flames. Demonstrating this correlation involves tracking the number and cause of fires in communities before FES were introduced, compared to the number and cause of these incidents after the introduction of the stoves. Similarly, a survey of burns and burn victims can help determine if the FES reduced the incidence. Note that in both cases, information gathered before the program started will in most instances be recall data which must be collected and analyzed carefully.
Stoves that are more efficient or are designed to reduce emissions, in principle, could help reduce the negative health impacts of inhaling smoke. However, few organizations will have the time, resources, or expertise to undertake a full health impact study in a disaster context.
Environmental damage mitigation
Reducing the amount of cooking fuel needed by households could contribute to reduced deforestation and environmental damage.
In this regard Association for Humanitarian Development (AHD) works with the financial Support by ERF Pakistan implementing its project in Union Council Mubarkpur Taluka Thul District Jacobabad with 750 Families. The Fuel Efficient Stoves training and Construction is also included in the project activities. Following is the update of the Fuel Efficient Stoves village wise.
