Pakistan Flood Relief 2010: Initial housing survey reports

Updated 3 November 2010

The World Federation of KSIMC and Hussaini Foundation are working towards creating housing solutions for the displaced flood victims in Pakistan. Volunteers have personally visited various villages and districts to identify the housing needs in the aftermath of the devastation:

SOUTH REGION: 
(1) UPPER SINDH

  • In the districts of Shikarpur, Jacobabad and Sukkar, houses have either been washed away or have incurred partial damages.
  • Our volunteer report indicates that 139 identified families across 10 villages have lost their houses to the flood. These dwellings have completely collapsed and need full construction.
  • Hussaini Foundation has allocated funds to begin reconstruction of these homes immediately upon obtaining the required documentations.
