This monsoon, severe rains have caused flooding that has destroyed the homes and livelihoods of millions in Pakistan. Although the southern provinces of Sindh and Balochistan were hit the worst, there were still 17 ‘calamity-hit’ districts in northern provinces such as Khyber Pakhtunkwa.
UK-based charity, Muslim Hands’ teams in Pakistan are addressing the immediate needs of those that have been affected. However, as the winter months are approaching and flood waters have begun to recede in the north, they aim to focus on Pakistan’s recovery and begin rebuilding the homes that so many have lost.
Currently, with the help of local beneficiaries, the charity is constructing individual and family homes in Khyber Pakhtunkwa that will be resilient to future flooding. These homes will consist of one family room, kitchen and one bathroom with a septic tank.
To ensure that they will be resilient against future flooding and beneficial to the people of Pakistan, they will be fitted with electricity and have three feet of cemented floor, complete with walls of concrete brick and a concrete roof.
