ASSESSMENT:

In these days rainy season has covered all over Sindh. People, who were already in the lap of poverty and shortage of water, had made their lands barren. Lower part of Sindh also has various problems in this regard.

All these problems are multiplied because of poor system of LBOD. It is seemed that rain is a real problem, but mistakes and omissions committed by LBOD played key role in the destruction.

Food: The impact of the floods on the most marginalized and vulnerable sections of the society have primarily been the disruption of gainful employment and loss of food commodities due to the inundation. While the prices of the available food commodities in the flood affected areas is out of the purchasing power of the poor people.
