The situation

The spell of drought in the Pakistani district of Tharparkar has put lives at risk.

The Latest Updates

  • 300 individuals have already received food packs. Each packs provides sustenance for one month and contains pulses, rice, tea, salt, spices, pickles and sugar.
  • HRF has organised medical camps in one of the six villages affected by the drought and has been able to provide medical relief to over 130 patients.

One of the most under-developed districts of Pakistan, the Government of Sindh has described Tharparkar as a ‘calamity-affected area’. Over 200,000 households are now affected.

The primary reason for the drought is the acute shortage of rainfall since most of the agriculture is dependent on the rain. Families who rely on agriculture and livestock as their main sources of livelihood are now in need of sustenance.

To aid the government’s response, HRF is providing services for food security, health/nutrition and clean drinking water facilities through the installation of waterpumps to the affected population.

As many as two more children succumbed to malnutrition in Tharparkar region of Sindh and raised the death toll to 28 for this month.'  (17 Sept 2018 - ReliefWeb)
