CWS - Hotline 31/5/99
PAKISTAN -- CWS-Pakistan and its local partners are working to distribute emergency relief one tent, one tarpaulin, and one food basket each to 1,000 of the most vulnerable families in one of the poorest areas of Pakistan's Sindh province, after a May 20 cyclone that destroyed 2,000 homes and inundated 40,000 acres of land. At least 700 people are missing. The homeless are desperate for shelter, and strong winds and rains have hampered relief work. CWS is appealing for 60,000 in support of this effort.
