District Badin is spread over an area of 6,726² km , with population of 1,136,044 individuals as per 1998 consensus (gender ratio male 52.60% & female 47.40%). Administratively, Badin is divided in 5 Tehsil, 46 union councils & 511 Dehs. Badin district can be broadly divided into two distinct economic zones. One zone supports purely agricultural income and the other one has a mixed economy, having fisheries along with agriculture as its main stay. 76 per cent of the population is dependent purely on agriculture production as the main occupation for most of their population. The remaining population work force depends on labor and other services for their livelihood.

Likewise union council Luari Sharif is an under developed UC of District Badin. It is scattered and contains a population of about 20,000 people. The people mostly depend on livestock and agriculture and the weather has a direct impact on their life and livelihood. Heavy rains of2010 to 2013 and floods affected a large piece of population in UC Luari Sharif. Their crops, livestock and homes were heavily damaged.

Relief activities were carried out by international organizations in this region but a major part of the union council was still not served.

The selected beneficiaries were 70 to 80 percent affected 80% houses were damaged or were in a non-livable condition. A large number of families were living in the same old damaged houses with minor repair they managed on their own.
