Wishing for some magic charm for House Repair

A farmer age 30 a resident of Village Haji Sawan, Deh Hanjor, Uc Haji Sawan, Taluka Matli, Badin. He is a tenant farmer and grows crops on his master lands for survival of his family. He was depressed of the conditions he is going on in this time. He used to manage income from farming and make sure his family is living a satisfied life, but all changed after floods 0f 2011. He has a family of 5 including his wife and 2 sons, 1 daughter. He quoted “it all happened so rapidly and changed my life for once and all”. The reason behind all this is debt burden. He and his other brothers share 60 acres of land for farming purposes. Cotton was in fields with cotton balls to harvest but floods 2011 washed away all. Next it was turn of Rabi crop wheat to be sown but standing water in fields didn’t make it possible for him. The lands dried in 3rd month of 2012. He managed to sow Cotton again but rains 2012 made things worse for him. His Cotton fields are again destroyed and AHD team witnessed those fields. At present he is daily looking for some labor to manage his financial needs. When asked from him who will bear the loss expanses he quoted “the master will get all these expanses from us next year when we will be able to harvest crops this or next year, Till  than I am under his debt and borrow money in times when I don’t get labor work even”. He needs support for their HOUSE Repair & agriculture inputs; this is question of his survival. Or he won’t be able to recover from debts and live a dignified life.

The most vulnerable beneficiaries are identified according to the following Shelter Cluster vulnerability criteria and protection criteria: (1) completely destroyed house; and (2) either absence of adult male family member, disabled or elderly family member, low-income or large family. Cash support is provided to allow flexible, needs-based support (beneficiaries choose the shelter design and building materials, ensuring that the shelter is culturally and climatically suitable and that salvaged materials are used wherever possible) and revitalize local economies and building material supply chains.

Social mobilizers organize beneficiary households into groups of 10, who are responsible for helping each other achieve construction milestones. Engineers and shelter specialists provide technical support for the incorporation of cost-effective disaster risk reduction techniques including plastering the walls to flood height both inside and out, building a solid foundation, reinforcing the corners and use of lintels above doors and windows.
