The Poor Villagers facing winter in their damaged houses near Tando Ghulam Ali Pakistan

AHD staff conducted a fresh survey in flood affected areas, about 30% families got support from different NGOs and INGOs but still some 40% facing shelter problems, their houses damaged badly, they busy in the agricultural activities and there is no hope for the their house repair. As their family expenses meet hardly. The crop production of rice crop was low as due the water shortage they cultivated only 3 acres of rice crop which is all taken by the landlords as their loan was high.

The families now have only hope for the next season of rice crop and about 700 families asking the support for their houses, shelter kits and roof material will be useful total cost for one family will be only 250 US $, which will be in PKR 25,000 will be enough to purchase roof material or shelter kit

We are looking you cooperation and if needs more info please email at info@ahdpak.org or ahdpak@gmail.com we will be happy to share more info

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.
