Welcome to our latest update. We pray that all your efforts and contributions are accepted and your kindness is rewarded. Ameen. Details of our latest activities are as following.

Flood Relief Activities Sindh:

The current situation in the flood affected areas is that things are returning to somewhat normal, not to mention the "normal" prior to the flood was not much satisfactory either. The flood water has dried up and people have moved back to their deserted lands and engaged in repairs of their homes and re-cultivating their fields. With the earnings from the new cultivation still far ahead and not much support from government and winter started the current demand is for food, house hold utensils, warm bedding and clothing.
For further spending, we are planning of giving out warm cloths and more ration packs along with some basic kitchen utensils to cook and hold food items. But our funds (Approx. Rs 7.8million ) have been depleted in relief / rehab activities and we are left with Rs 2.1 million only while in flow of funding has been almost seized. Once, amounts are totally consumed, we would have no option but to close our camps /operations. Recently, we have received an amount of £1,838.13 from joint venture of Gil Poulos Memorial Trust / Serving Humanity – UK for orphans, only in flood affected areas.
