Fight The Flood - Bridge Our Divide

Nature is a strange mother.

What wars have not been able to achieve against Pakistan, water is doing, effortlessly.

The 2010 Floods are beyond a natural disaster: they are an existential threat to the very fabric that holds our nation together.

Almost everyone in Pak who has the facility has received an email or SMS asking to help out. But there is not enough central coordination or unity of action for relief efforts. Well meaning initiatives get lost in the panic or emergency and relief.
Thus, ordinary citizens are torn, confused and even unaware about where to go, how to help and who to contribute to.

"Fight The Flood" is an effort to streamline relief related appeals, concerns and efforts onto one, singular platform. This is currently the only blog that is combines multiple, even confusing appeals & postings onto one site to make them clearer and easier to list. Plus, contributors now get to choose from a wide range of options for charity or even volunteer work. Also, disaster and relief managers are welcome to post appeals and updates here.
Ordinary citizens involved in a smaller network, like a neighborhood community, can also participate and use this blog to coordinate their efforts.

If you're interested in participating by becoming a Coordinator for this site, contact me at journalism.wsk@gmail.com. If you have never blogged, this is about as good a reason to start as you'll ever have.

Lets fight this fight - together. Please browse FTF's postings and pick up a task, a cause, or simply make a contribution.

Good luck

HOW TO HELP: Ushahidi’s “SMS To Save & Survive” Initiative

August 31, 2010

My friend and colleague, Harvard Fellow-MPP Nadia Naviwalla sent this out to promote Ushahidi – a fantastic new resource for anyone interested in cutting-edge tech-based flood relief…It’s awesome what the Web can do…

The purpose of my email is two-fold. Firstly, to urge you pass this email to those in Pakistan, or via a contact to Pakistan, where people on the ground — whomever they be — can be made aware of Ushahidi. Secondly, if you would like to donate, there then follows a list of some NGOs which a group of friends and I believe are ideal for executing and delivering aid quickly and to the deepest places.

Ushahidi is a website that will inform agencies of areas requiring emergency relief, and it will help prevent a duplication of relief efforts. The way it works is a person on the ground texts 3441 and begins the text message with ‘FL’. The person then writes a DETAILED description of the needs of the area, and the location. Street names aren’t required, but a description of a place that can be found are, such as: ‘in [name of area] by the main road near a tree that’s close to a gas station’. The text is verified by a coordinator and, once approved, marked on the map. Once on the map, agencies will be alerted to the need.

Therefore, please make your networks in Pakistan and your friends in journalism aware of: http://pakrelief.crowdmap.com/

HOW TO HELP: Zala Zia’s “Celebrity Cook Book” Initiative

August 30, 2010

This is a super cool and uber original project. Zala Zia is kicking off her fundraising cook book project, listing the fav recipes of global celebs. You can contribute on pro bono basis…

I am in the process of creating a fundraising project that brings together high profile individuals to show solidarity for Pakistan in its time of need and maximise their ability to reach out to a wider audience. In a creative and unusual way, I am trying to encourage people, who may not be aware of the crisis situation, to support those suffering.

I decided to make a high profile book, containing the favourite recipes of well-respected celebrities and public figures; a book that the wider public would genuinely want to own, while supporting a humanitarian crisis with its purchase.

I have many people pledging their commitment to the project already, including the ultimate politician Tony Benn, the boxing champ Amir Khan, the legendary George Galloway and the wonderful comedian Omid Djalili.

The book in its entirety, from publishing to launch is being created with people and organisations willing to work pro bono, with all proceeds from the sale of the book going to charity.

Whether it is contacting celebrities, attracting publishers, or convincing media to support the project, it all takes a lot of research, dedication and damn hard work – and I will admit it is extraordinarily difficult to do on my own.

I would be grateful for any support, whether it be introductions to high profile celebrities, meetings with publishing houses, or personal contacts with media.

Your support for my project with words, or actions is greatly appreciated.

To my family and friends who are doing all they can, even in the mere fractions of spare time they have available, I love you and thank you.

You can follow me on twitter @zalazia

HOW TO HELP: Shaan Ali Khan’s “Close to Home” Initiative

August 30, 2010

For many, helping out is a social duty – an obligation to our compatriots. But for Karachi-based ad-exec Shaan Khan, it’s much more personal. Her family needs help, and this is her appeal…

Hello  Everyone!

I’m sure your inboxes have been flooded with relief effort emails and I know everyone is a little confused about where and how to donate. Well prepare yourself because here comes another one. This is a little more personal however. My mother’s family comes from a village in Sindh called Buddapur. It is located outside Hyderabad/Jamshoro. It consists of about 700 families most of whom are my cousins and relatives. The Shoro clan is currently holed up in the power plant in Hyderabad for the past two weeks and hope to return to their homes in another two weeks when the water is expected to recede. Even though the water levels have exceeded 8 feet in some areas in the village there is still a threat of looting what has not already been destroyed, so some of the villagers have been risking their lives by taking boats back into the village just to keep an eye on things. Last week 4 people died while making that journey.

I know there is a lot to do and most of us don’t know how to start. But this is little close to home and my family has been collecting supplies and money and distributing it to our village. My mom made a trip last weekend with two trucks but it’s not nearly enough.

I have devised a plan to sustain the Shoros until they get back onto their feet. Please bear with me.

a)      Phase 1: The next 2-3 weeks will be spent by the villagers in the power plant as the water is expected to take that long to recede. During this time we need to send them supplies which will keep them going until then. Dry Foods, Cooking Oil, Sanitary Napkins for Women, First Aid boxes, Bottled Water.

b)      Phase 2: In week 4 the villagers will return to what is left of the village. It is expected that most of the houses have been washed away, especially those belonging to the poorer families as their homes are made of mud. At this point we will have to provide monetary relief so they can build their homes.

So you can either contribute to Phase 1 or Phase 2. All distributions will be made in person. You are welcome to accompany me and my mom when we make that trip in two weeks (I’m thinking the weekend). Also monetary distribution will be cataloged and you will receive a receipt with a signature (or thumb print) of the receiver. If you can help…that would be great because I’m kind of doing this alone. Give me a call. Forward this to whomever you want. For the record this is not a part of any NGO initiative. Its just me.

So let me know. Give me a call at 0333-398-9605 or email me at shaankhan@gmail.com

Thanks!!!

Shaan

NEWS: Pak Flooding due to Farms? Nat Geo’s perspective

August 28, 2010

My colleague, Karachi-based science-journalist Mason Inman, did this piece for National Geographic. It gives some fantastic insights about a topic no one is talking about…WHY such flooding…

This story is part of a special series that explores the global water crisis. For more, visit National Geographic’s Freshwater website.

Pakistan’s extreme floods, which have displaced 20 million people and swamped a fifth of the country, have been made far worse by decades of river mismanagement, experts say.

In Pakistan’s wide plains where the bulk of the population lives, the rivers swelled by monsoons have been confined by levees, dams, and canals, in much the same way the Mississippi River has in the United States.

On Pakistan’s glacial-fed Indus River, the British started to build a system of canals and small dams for diverting water onto fields, when Pakistan was part of their Indian colony.

Since Pakistani independence in 1947, river managers have expanded the canal system. Now, instead of the natural flow from the Himalaya in the north to the Arabian Sea in the south, the Indus is diverted, piecemeal, east or west, wherever it is needed to support farming. Such river diversion is a common sight around the world as populations and food production boom.

These contrived river boundaries and tributaries in essence prevent the Indus River Basin from holding as much water as it once did during heavy and prolonged rains.

Farmland a Blessing and a Curse

The Indus and its canals are “the largest irrigation system in the world,” says Tahir Qureshi, a forestry expert with the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) and a former government forest officer and game warden.

Pakistan’s irrigation system has turned this arid country into an agricultural powerhouse, but it has had its downside as well, experts say.

“The major river engineering is basically a Faustian bargain,” says Daanish Mustafa of King’s College London, recalling the fable in which a man sells his soul to the devil in exchange for a life of luxury. Mustafa is a geographer who has studied the history of Pakistan’s river management.

Until a few decades ago, there were typically mild floods each summer—the time when the monsoon rainfall hits, and the melt from the snowpack in the Himalaya and Karakoram Mountains is at its peak.

But now, because humans have sculpted the river and the surrounding natural floodplain and wetlands for farming and other needs, there are fewer floods, but when they hit, they are far worse, said Mustafa.

“There’s not very much space [in the river channel] to absorb all the rainfall,” says Asad Sarwar Qureshi, a water resources expert at the International Water Management Institute (IWMI) branch in Lahore, Pakistan.  “We need to get it back into shape, so that it can carry its original capacity.”

Wetlands along the river’s course used to take up some floodwaters, and the government also used to divert excess water into “no man’s land” during the monsoon season, he says. But those areas have been converted to farmland, he says.

“There was absolutely a mad rush to settle in these floodplains,” says Mustafa.

Another part of the problem is that the Indus River and its tributaries carry some of the highest levels of silt of any river system.  More silt equals less room for water as monsoons and snowmelt inundate the now-confined riverbed and canals.

“Most of our rivers and canals are already silted up,” says IWMI’s Qureshi.

The Solution

Allowing the river to flood more regularly, and naturally, could help temper the floods and make them more tolerable, say Mustafa and other experts.

“They need to give the rivers room to expand,” Mustafa says. “Not along the whole way, but they should restore some of the wetlands along the way.”

At the same time, many of the levees should be kept in place, but maintained better, Tahir Qureshi says.

One way of doing this, he says, is to plant trees along the riverbanks.

“When I was in the forestry department in the 1970s and ’80s,” Tahir Qureshi says, “we used to broadcast seeds of Acacia nilotica,” a native tree species.

“They are soil binders, and a physical barrier to the flood flow. They are the flood guards, a biological means of protection.”

In the past couple of decades, however, many of the embankment forests and trees have died or been chopped down, Tahir Qureshi says.

Managing Pakistan’s floods is a delicate balance between giving the river more room, and building barriers to protect people and their land.

There’s little sign of this situation turning around soon, as it involves major landscape changes, experts say. “It pains me to see my country going in the wrong direction,” Mustafa says.

HOW TO HELP: The ‘Karachi Underground’s’ 5-Day “Jam” Intiative

August 27, 2010

A few young House Bands will be performing at the famed T2F Cafe in Karachi for 5 days, starting later this week. All proceeds will go towards flood relief.

This event will run from  31 August – 04 September

In an effort to raise money for the survivors of this terrible catastrophe, we ask that you all come together for five nights at The Second Floor and donate generously. There will be peace, love and music filling the hearts and minds of everyone there.
The event is being held for “The Omar Asghar Khan Foundation”, a wonderful organization of hard working individuals dedicated to the relief and rehabilitation of those much less fortunate than ourselves, all around the country.

Coupled with support of the great people at T2F, we were able to get a great venue for five straight nights without any hassle at all, for which they deserve a great big thanks.

A single house band will perform each and every night. But since this is a charity gig, we ask any bands or solo musical acts to respond by giving some of their time to share their talent for those in need. The objective is to keep adding names and their respective performance nights to the list.

THE QUEEN AND THE THIS THING (Faraz Lodhi, Mohammad Sibtain Fazli, Mohammad Agha: House band)

//ORANGENOISE (Daniel Arthur Panjwaneey, Talha Asim Wynne, Faizan Riedinger, Danial Hyatt: performing Tuesday the 31st of August)

SPOONFUL (Hamad Khan, Jasir Abro, Ali Haider, Aziz Kazi: performing Thursday the 2nd of September)

AMIR ZAKI (performing Thursday the 2nd of September)

This is a chance to prove something to ourselves, ladies and gentlemen. It’s a chance to prove that we care enough to make small donations but from so many of us that we can make a potentially staggering amount of money for those affected by the flood.

The donation for entry to the show is Rs. 350.

Any amount paid per person in excess of that number will not be frowned upon. Any private companies interested in sponsoring or promoting this event will receive a special mention plus the freedom to place standees or logos outside the venue.

Spread the word! Invite everyone you know! Post it on your walls! Go insane guys, the more the merrier!

Peace and Love.

HOW TO HELP: ‘Desktop Activism’ – An Initiative by young professionals @ “Turn The Tide”

August 26, 2010

Some young professionals, including Adnan Malik, Adnan Millwala, Hamaad Haider, Juvaria Jaffri, Laleh Habib, Mehrunnisa Yusuf, Munizeh Sanai and Sana Babar have come together on an unofficial platform called ‘Turn the Tide’ and have structured a relief effort YOU can lead! Now you can become a relief activist, right from your desktop.

Dear Prospective Activist,

Turn the Tide is initiating a joint venture fund raiser for the flood victims with Karachi Relief Trust. We am writing to you, not for your donations, but for your participation. Participation is simple: reach out to your donor base, ideally foreign – particularly your alumni network and facebook contacts.

Reproduced below is a draft letter that may be used by you. Contents of the draft letter are self explanatory. A read of the draft letter will clarify the structure of this fund raiser. Please read the letter before proceeding:

“Dear Friends:

In the recent past natural disasters have not been uncommon but the floods in Pakistan, which have inundated one fifth of the country and displaced 20 million people, appear to surpass them all. According to the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs the number of people affected is higher than the Haiti earthquake, the Indian Ocean tsunami and Kashmir earthquake combined. This country needs your help.

Our Initiative:

The need of the hour is food, water, medication, clothing and shelter. As a first step in channeling relief efforts we have decided to focus our aid and endeavours towards ‘drinking water’ in conjunction with a private trust called Karachi Relief Trust (KRT) (http://www.karachirelieftrust.org) which is doing an admirable job in organising relief efforts across Pakistan in multiple areas. We are procuring a water purifying apparatus as there is acute shortage of drinking water and deadly water borne diseases (in particular cholera) are fast emerging as potentially the most serious threat to millions.

How can you help?

For provision of drinking water KRT has already imported limited quantities of a product called Life Straw Family, a water purification apparatus designed for use in disaster zones. It uses no power or spare parts, costs $25 plus duties, and cleanses 18,000 liters of contaminated water. KRT is trying to obtain exemption from the duties. You may visit http://www.vestergaard-frandsen.com/lifestraw/lifestraw-family for information on this product.

We have worked out an arrangement with KRT which ensures transparency and is logistically effective. KRT has agreed to import the product for us with donations received from you. To ensure your money is tracked and accounted for KRT has opened a separate bank account dedicated for money donated by you (Dedicated Account). All monies received in the Dedicated Account will be used to provide relief to the victims (note: administrative and operational costs pertaining to the relief, including but not limited to transportation and distribution costs thereof will be borne by KRT and us).

Once procured [my friends and I / my friends (delete as appropriate)] will personally transport relief goods to the affected areas through logistics networks of KRT, which has penetrated many flood hit areas and is running various camps for the displaced. [We / They] will distribute the product amongst the flood victims and train them on how to use the product. I commit to report back to you with details of the relief efforts and account for exactly how your donations were utilised.

Besides donating may I request you to widely circulate this e-mail amongst family and friends, and encourage them to do the same.

While our efforts will woefully fall short of the dire needs of the 20 million victims, we nonetheless think it necessary to act.

Should you wish to help the flood victims (by supporting our efforts or otherwise), please do so immediately. Wire transfer details of the Dedicated Account are as under:

Account Holder:         Karachi Relief Trust

Account No.:              010-2412-3

Bank:                           United Bank Limited

Branch:                        Sunset Boulevard

Branch Code:              1620

Swift:                          UNILPKKA

Donors from USA, may also transfer funds using their debit/credit card (Visa/Mastercard) through United Bank Limited’s ‘ClickNRemit’ facility athttps://remit.ublny.com/index.php.  Please read the FAQ section before using.

Please notify any donations made to the Dedicated Account at [Please insert your e-mail address] and copy the same to turnthetide.pakistan@gmail.com so we can ensure receipt of the same.

[You may contact me directly at Ph: (Optional)]

Sincerely,”

___________________________________________

In a nutshell: Various people raising funds, such as yourself, bring the money, KRT provides the account, KRT helps us import, we ride on KRT’s network and distribute.

Structure: Based on our individual credibility You start our solo fund raising drives and reach out to our personal foreign networks. Foreign donors are our target as donor fatigue has set in locally. You provide our own e-mails and keep turnthetide.pakistan@gmail.com copied on to correspondence so we keep track of your donors. You own your fund raiser so you may alter the proposed draft above and approach your donor base as you please (facebook groups, alumni networks, etc.) What we have in common is: (i) the Dedicated Account, and (ii) the objective: provision of ‘drinking water’ through import and distribution of Life Straw Family.

Report: Turn the Tide will prepare a final report which you may forward to your donors.

Import: Searle Pharmaceuticals is helping import this product. They have given a non-binding indication to donate one unit for every unit we import! We are currently working on duty exemption. HBL has imported substantial volumes of this product as well and and procured exemption from duty.

Distribution: All our credibility pooled we can raise a decent sum, and as such will require as many hands as we can get. We are all encouraged, but not required, to go to affected areas and distribute the product ourselves. A bit of training is involved as well which is simple.

Dedicated Account: While the account is in the name of KRT, as we did not want to accept donations in our personal accounts, Turn the Tide will have complete access to it.

Those who are willing to, please confirm your participation.

Please do not hesitate to contact us at turnthetide.pakistan@gmail.com should you require any clarification.

Warm regards,

Turn the Tide

HOW TO HELP: Fakhr-e-Alam’s Tips on What to Send

August 26, 2010
Karachi-based entertainer Fakhr-e-Alam sent this email from the field. I have edited it for content…
“We must build food cycles, so that a constant supply can be made to the hungry people. You the overseas Pakistanis have to help us build food stocks so that there is no food shortage, and that the profiteers are not allowed to escalate local food prices, which will burden the other 70 percent poor population of Pakistan.
So this is what we need to do:
1. Build food cycles by sending food items to Pakistan. 2. Create shelter by sending all weather tents. 3. Set up medical patrol volunteer teams with plenty of medication. The rehabilitation, reconstruction is a far more daunting task, and it is best left to the government. This is what you have to do: Get a carton box size 15 x 15 x 12. This size has been chosen because it  gives us the optimum volume to weight ratio for our purpose.
Fill it with the following: 1. Two 1.5 liter bottles of water. 2. Two packs of sweet biscuits. 3. 12 packs of 200 ml to 250 ml juices. 4. 6 small packets of potato chips. 5. 2 bars of anti germ soap 6. 1 small bottle of insect repellant. 7. 1 box of dates. 8. 1 box of chocolates. 9. 1 sachet of glucose and vitamin energy mix ( ORS) 10. 1 liter carton of milk. Pack this with extreme love and care, and take this box to a PIA cargo office. All this cargo will be transported absolutely free of cost on  priority by PIA. As soon as it arrives at an airport in Pakistan. It will be custom cleared on priority and immediately handed over to Pakistan Army and very relevant NGOS like the Red Cross and NCHD. Note the cargo once on board a PIA flight will reach the affected recipient with 36 hours. Remember the severity and the magnitude is so much that every box counts.  If we can build a cycle then nothing like it. But remember requirements will change in the next 30 to 40 days. But the box size will remain the same. Also please send as many all weather tents as you can send.Finally please do not send used clothes. Do not send irrelevant donations. Most of all NO MONEY. I have set up this system so that every little bit counts. Let’s make it happen. The logistics are there and you know what to do. You will see me on and off on various TV channels. I will update you  all step by step. PIA is our back bone in this operation. If at any stage you have any complains with the PIA people please call Captain Salman on +92-321-2232777. He is the head of the relief operation and our maincontact person in PIA for relief. You can reach me on my email falam76@gmail.com. “

Aug 15, 2010 – With the floods now having entered week three, folks want to know who they can trust. There are three categories. Pakistani organizations. International organizations. And individuals that I am either working with directly, or whose trustworthiness I feel comfortable endorsing. Here’s the list:

Pakistani civil society:

* TCF Relief: Donate here: http://www.thecitizensfoundation.org/floodrelief.html

* Edhi Foundation. Contact here: http://www.edhifoundation.com/contact.asp

* Karachi Relief Trust. Contact/Donate here: http://www.karachirelief.org/donation.htm

International Organizations

Of course, the most robust interal management systems belong to international humanitarian organizations and NGOs, and they do most of their work through Pakistani partners and employees. Some of the most trustworthy options are:

* UK’s Disaster Emergency Committee (DEC), which is an alliance of 13 British NGOs, including British Red Cross, Action Aid, Merlin, Oxfam, Islamic Relief and Christian Aid. You can donate here: http://www.dec.org.uk/donate_now/

* UNHCR, which is a UN organization, with whom I have worked directly on several occasions, is the UN’s premier humanitarian organization. You can donate to UNHCR’s Pakistan flood fund, here:http://www.unhcr.org/emergency/pakistan/global_landing.html

* International Committee of the Red Cross/Crescent. Needs no introduction. Donate online, here: http://www.icrc.org/web/eng/siteeng0.nsf/iwpList2/Help_the_ICRC?OpenDocument

Individuals

* Ehsaan Kiani of the Islamabad Jeep Club (IJC) has not rested in almost two weeks. He and his colleagues from the IJC have zero admin costs, as they are borne by the group themselves. I visited two camps being supported by Ehsaan and team. You can learn more about their work at the website http://ijc.com.pk/forum//viewtopic.php?f=23&t=211 which also contains contact information for Ehsaan.

His activism is on full throttle once again. Samad was in Nowshera at the same time as us on Friday. He can be contacted via e-mail: samadkhurram@gmail.com

* Faisal Kapadia, a Karachi-based blogger, is working with SA Relief and just completed a truck run to Sukkur and Shikarpur. The SA Relief website is:http://www.sarelief.com/2010/08/mcpfloodrelief/ . Faisal can be reached through his Twitter account, @faisalkapadia.

HOW TO HELP: Adnan Malik’s KRT initiative – “Turn the Tide for Pakistan”

August 25, 2010

This was just circulated by my friend and colleague Adnan Malik:

Dear Friends:

Some of you I know very well and others have just been passing acquaintances, but I I reach out to each one of you today, because at some point in our wandering lives, we have connected and I have seen in you a belief in Truth, humanity and the idea of change.

I am certain you are all aware of this, but I feel I must re-state that in the recent past natural disasters have not been uncommon but the floods in Pakistan, which have inundated one fifth of the country and displaced 20 million people, appear to surpass them all and has hit at the heart of this already very troubled country. According to the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs the number of people affected is higher than the Haiti earthquake, the Indian Ocean tsunami and Kashmir earthquake combined. This country needs your help.

Past Initiative:

Many of you receiving this e-mail either donated or assisted with raising Rs.3,382,576 (US$ 41,760) for over 3 million Internally Displaced Persons in Pakistan in June 2009. Donations came from U.A.E., Cyprus, U.K., India and U.S.A. Every penny donated was used to procure relief goods which me and my friends personally delivered to the displaced. A report detailing our efforts, circulated earlier, is attached herewith for ready reference. Please find below a link to a short video I shot and produced of our relief effort:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rEpK5Zwdf5Q

Present Need:

We are initiating a similar initiative as the one undertaken for the displaced persons. The need of the hour is food, water, medication, clothing and shelter. As a first step in channeling relief efforts we have decided to focus our aid and endeavours towards ‘drinking water’, in conjunction with a private trust called Karachi Relief Trust (KRT) (www.karachirelieftrust.org) which is doing an admirable job in organising relief efforts across Pakistan in multiple areas. We are procuring a water purifying apparatus as there is acute shortage of drinking water and deadly water borne diseases (in particular cholera) are fast emerging as potentially the most serious threat to millions.

How can you help?

For provision of drinking water KRT has already imported limited quantities of a product called Life Straw Family, a water purification apparatus designed for use in disaster zones. It uses no power or spare parts, costs $25 plus duties, and purifies 10 liters of water in an hour. In its lifespan of 3 years, it cleanses 18,000 liters of contaminated water. KRT is also trying to obtain exemption from the import duties of this product as I write to you. You may visithttp://www.vestergaard-frandsen.com/lifestraw/lifestraw-family for information on this product.

We have worked out an arrangement with KRT which ensures transparency and is logistically effective. KRT has agreed to import the product for us with donations received from you. To ensure your money is tracked and accounted for KRT has opened a separate bank account dedicated for money donated by you (It is a Dedicated Account). All monies received in the Dedicated Account will be used to provide relief to the victims. All administrative and operational costs pertaining to the relief, including but not limited to any transportation and distribution costs of the product will be borne by KRT and us and not come out of the donations.

Once procured my friends and I will get trained on how to use the apparatus and will then  personally transport the life straw utensils to the affected areas through the logistics networks of KRT, which has penetrated many flood hit areas and is running various camps for the displaced. We will distribute the product amongst the flood victims and train them on how to use the product. I commit to report back to you with details of our efforts and account for exactly how your donations were utilized.

Besides donating may I request you to widely circulate this e-mail amongst family and friends, and encourage them to do the same.

While our efforts will woefully fall short of the dire needs of the 20 million victims, we nonetheless think it necessary to act. Please consider that even a $25 donation will provide clean drinking water to a family for the next three years, and will aid them in focusing on rebuilding their lives without having to suffer disease or worse.  I also realize that a lot of people want to contribute but the timing is wrong or there are numerous other factors that may hinder a direct financial contribution, in which case I ask you to become a conduit and a connector. Perhaps you can tap into some of your professional and/or social networks and raise money for the cause.

Should you wish to help the flood victims (by supporting our efforts or otherwise), please do so immediately. Wire transfer details of the Dedicated Account are as under:

Account Holder:         Karachi Relief Trust

Account No.:              010-2412-3

Bank:                           United Bank Limited

Daily Assessment Updates on Torrential Rain and Flood Situation in Pakistan

August 18, 2010

Overview:

Over the course of July and early August 2010, Pakistan experienced the worst monsoon-related floods in living memory. Heavy rainfall, flash floods and riverine floods have devastated large parts of Pakistan since the arrival of seasonal monsoon rains on 22 July, 2010. Latest estimates indicate that around 20 million people have been affected by the floods. Assessments are ongoing to ascertain the scale of damages in the affected areas. The official death toll has risen to 1,343, with 1,588 people now reported as injured. The latest NDMA report indicates that over 722,000 houses have been either damaged or destroyed. But the figures may rise further as information from different parts is yet to come.

Details damage assessment is going on across Sindh and Southern Punjab by UN-OCHA and SPO is also part of joint assessment in Sindh. Data currently available indicates that Shikarpur, Kashmore, Jacobabad, Khairpur, Dadu and Naushahro Feroze have been the hardest hit districts in Sindh. Similarly, districts Layyah, D.G. Khan, Muzzafargarh and Rajanpur are hardest hit districts in southern Punjab.

The flood wave continues to make its way through the southern province of Sindh, where millions have been affected from the combined impact of torrential rains and unprecedented water levels in the rivers.

Through rapid assessments, humanitarian agencies are identifying desperate needs of affected communities  and so far identified desperate needs include: food, clean drinking water and purification materials, emergency health services, tents and shelter kits, cooking sets, mosquito nets, and other non-food items (NFI).

In order to facilitate coordinated humanitarian response in the affected areas and enable humanitarian organizations to have substantial planning for their humanitarian activities, SPO, with the support of its partner organizations, initiated rapid assessments in the affected areas and share it with relevant stakeholders in the form of daily update. Date-wise situational update and rapid assessments of damages caused by torrential rains and floods are available on SPO website and can be accessed on URL http://www.spopk.org.

Daily update for 18th August 2010, providing details of SPO’s response to the emergency situation and relief activities being carried out for mitigation of the miseries of affected communities across the country, is provided below:
