OCHA fund helps families overcome flood legacy

When floods swept through Sindh Province in northern Pakistan in September 2012, Haseena, a widowed mother of four, lost her home, her livestock and her means of making an income.

Pakistan: Floods 2012: Measles outbreak in Sindh (as of 20 Jun 2013)

Measles continues to be a problem in Sindh due to a weak routine immunization program. Since 2010 there have been a number of outbreaks in flood affected areas. The situation worsens in winters due to overcrowding and the airborne nature of infection transmission. Displacement affects more easily children and poor nutrition leads to lowered immunity which further increases the vulnerability of children. Lack of access to life saving healthcare during emergencies further compounds the impact of the disease leading to high mortality among infected children.

Pakistan: Humanitarian Dashboard Floods 2012 (as of 30 May 2013)

SITUATION OVERVIEW

An estimated 1.5 million people in southern Pakistan are still highly vulnerable and require humanitarian assistance as they try and recover from the impact of the 2012 monsoon floods, according to humanitarian partners. The flood-affected people need livelihoods, shelter, health, nutrition, water, sanitation and hygiene support.

Three consecutive years of flooding have only compounded the existing vulnerability of people living in hazard prone areas who are extremely poor and underdevelopment of their locations.
