Flood Relief Activities Since July 2010:

Pakistan's impoverished northwest has been wrecked by the worst floods in the country history. A disaster that has claimed 1,500 lives, wiped out villages and displaced millions of people. The flood has destroyed crops, homes, roads and bridges in many areas of Khyber PakhtonKhwa, South Punjab, Blochistan and interior Sindh. Survivors are also threatened by waterborne diseases from contaminated wells and polluted flood water.

Flood survivors, already in turmoil due to fighting between the Pakistani government and insurgents, are now struggling to find shelter, food, clean drinking water, and emergency medical supplies.

Kawish welfare trust is active in the flood relief activities.

So far Kawish has contributed as below;

Kawish & TRG sponsored a boat. The boat is operated in River Swat near Batagram. Previously there was bridge linking Batagram and the other side that was collapsed in flood. Local people and students had to pay Rs.20/- to cross river by only available boat. Later, a chair lift is installed that charges Rs.10/- but is dangerous and few people use it. It was decided that students of school, Mosque, and olds above 60 will use this boat free of charge and remaining will pay Rs.5/-.
