Team reaching the communities
Greetings from AWARD Pakistan,
Every year July and August are months of heavy rains in Pakistan.In 2015,the heavy rains have caused severe flood situation all over Pakistan especially in the provinces (Punjab and KPK).Last year,the floods have affected 817,713 people and 2275 villages of Pakistan.The Project focuses on the prior preparation of the communities of the 15 villages of Southern Punjab to save themselves from the floods through the Disaster Risk Reduction trainings.
AWARD Pakistan wishes to prepare the communities(at higher risk) so that they should be able to save their familes, livestock, belongings and valueables from the flood which could hit anytime after the severe rain. The project aims to formate 15 volunteer groups in 15 most vulnerable areas where they would be trained about generating the early warning systems and to take precise measures to reduce the amount of losses they face bearly every year.
So far AWARD Pakistan team has been conducting surverys in several rural areas of Muzaffargarh which lies next to the river. These areas lies on a 1 and half hours distance from AWARD Pakistan regional office. The Journey also includes the half an hour travel on the boats though the river which is essential to reach the target communities. As the project has not been able to collect any donations so far therefore the survey process is a bit slow and will be ended by the end of november.
We would like all our readers to help us reach the vulnerbale communities and to support us in our cause.
