NWO extended relief activities to provide succour to people in desperate need of help in their worst times

As the ongoing floods expand their wrath in Sindh, the Nishat Welfare Organization (NWO) has also extended its relief activities to provide succour to the people in desperate need of help in their worst times.

Focussing mainly on four districts of the province, the NWO has targeted more than 100 villages in Benazirabad, Dadu, Naushehroferoze, and Larkana districts, where it is reaching out to the worst-affected people and endeavouring to mitigate their sufferings.

The NWO's operation in the flood-affected areas encompasses all the necessary work—from rescuing the marooned to the provision of shelter, food and health services. So far, our workers have waded through the water to reach out to more than 10,000 people from the flooded areas of Qazi Ahmed (District Benazirabad), Kandiaro (District Nosheroferoze), Dokri (District Larkana) and Seeta (District Dadu) and evacuated them to safety through boats, tractors, or any other means possible.

These men, women and children--comprising 2,000 families-have been lodged at five camps set up in the safer areas by the NWO, where they are being provided three times meal. Since our efforts began some 16 days ago, the NWO has so far distributed some 50 tonnes of food items — rice, flour, ghee, biscuits, powdered milk etc. The relief still continues unabated.

Besides, the NWO is also taking care of those, who chose to stay back in the flooded areas for the protection of whatever is left behind. Our workers are regularly visit the inundated areas to provide ration, including potable water to those people.

Our longest medical camp is operating in Qazi Ahmed, since last 12 days, where a large number of flood-affected people--not only those lodged in the NWO relief camp, but also those who are residing with their relatives and friends in the area--are benefiting from the services offered by qualified doctors and provision of medicines free of charge. The medical camp operates round the clock to immediately treat diseases like gastroenteritis, diarrhoea, skin infection, respiratory infection and malaria, which are rampant among the survivors.

Similarly, a large number of NWO workers stand shoulder to shoulder with local residents in case of flood emergency. In one such case, our workers immediately sprung into action when the protective embankment near Qazi Ahmed and Seeta came under pressure and there was the threat it might cave in to mighty Indus. Heavy machinery like bulldozers and tractors were arranged by the NWO to strengthen the embankment.

The NWO relief operation is going on in full swing and will continue till the rehabilitation of all the affected people.
