Present Situation of villages:
* About 70 percent of Thatta’s 850,000 people displaced due to floods in Thatta * AHD office and all targeted villages are also submerged in flood water
Thousands of people in floods waiting response food, medicine & shelter AHD is providing help to some 5,000 families and want to support them with Fuel Efficient Stove activities again to help them in rehabilitation as the communities will go back to their homes after flood water goes down. Around 375,000 people - around 70 percent of Thatta’s affected areas population - were believed to have packed up and left overnight. Surrounding towns of Sujawal, Jati, Mirpur Bathoro and Darro — which had a combined population of 400,000 — had already been evacuated. A stream of buses, cars, trucks and bullock carts snaked out of Thatta heading for higher ground. Many people were walking, driving livestock and carrying bundles of possessions. According to the district administration, the floodwater is expected to enter Thatta city early on Saturday. Many people from outlying areas had taken refuge in Thatta, which normally has a population of about 400,000, and now had to move again, another official said. But Farooqi said one breach in the riverbank had been plugged and authorities were working to patch another near Faqir Jogoth. In Makli, which is a hilly area, devastated people were seen sitting out in the open with their children and cattle. "It is the worst tragedy.... We are leaving our homes in miserable condition". A stream of buses, cars, trucks and bullock carts snaked out of Thatta heading for higher ground. Many people are walking, driving livestock and carrying bundles of possessions. But some people refused to go.
“We’re not going to leave. How can we leave? Who will protect my house?” Affectees Said.
