Flood Relief 2006

In 2006, the districts of Lower Sindh Hyderabad, Sanghar, Mirpurkhas and Badeen experienced heavy torrential rainfall and as a result, vast areas were submerged in water, crops were ruined, power supply and sewerage systems collapsed. Stagnant water created serious health problems.

Under Al-Huda Flood Relief Program, food, drinking water and clothes were supplied to the flood-affected people. Al-Huda targeted areas where no support had reached. Food and basic necessities required by people were bought from adjacent areas and provided to the calamity stricken people. Relief was provided to villages between Hyderabad and Mir Pur Khas as well as parts of Hyderabad and Badeen. A total of Rs.585,300 was spent on the relief work.
