Background:

Sindh on alert:

In view of the prevalent conditions in the upper parts of Pakistan, the Provincial Disaster Management Authority’s (PDMA) alert issued for the province of Sindh focused on gearing up in flood fighting protocols and mechanisms. The PDMA also broadcasted SMS alert in Sindh for the districts of Khairpur, Sukkur, Kasmore, Larkana, Sikarpur, Jacobabad, Kambar, and Ghotki. The messages have reached around 265,000 mobile phone subscribers in high-risk districts.

Irrigation experts said that between 45,000 and 55,000 cusecs of water are expected to pass through Guddu Barrage on September 17. Between 70,000 and 75,000 cusecs of floodwater were earlier expected to pass through Sindh but a large volume of the torrent has been dispersed. However, families living in the low-lying continue to remain at risk.

Anticipating the torrent, the Sindh government has issued a flood warning and asked residents of katcha (riverine) areas to move to safer places. According to Sindh Information Minister Sharjeel Memon, all the deputy commissioners (DCs) have issued evacuation notices to residents of katcha areas. Katcha residents, however, said they are not ready to leave since no relief camps have been set up for them by the Sindh government and no transport has been provided for them. In the absence of any arrangements, they said they would rather stay where they are.

Situation Update: In Azad Jammu & Kashmir: Addressing Immediate Health Needs

Background:

The floods in Pakistan have affected 1,121,987 people as recorded by the National Disaster Management Authority’s (NDMA) latest update. According to UNOCHA, the authorities expect an estimated 3 million people to be affected by floods in the coming days. Approximately 257 people have been reported dead and 461 injured.

Most families affected since last week lack access to adequate food, shelter, and drinking water. These factors increase the risk of waterborne diseases and other health concerns.

While food, emergency shelters, immediate healthcare, WASH, and NFIs are priority needs in the affected areas, access to clean water and adequate healthcare is essential to avoid mortality caused by water-borne diseases. Affected community members worry about their lives without homes and no land to rebuild. They worry about diminishing food supplies, lost livestock and crops, and the coming challenging winter months ahead. There is no doubt that a lack of resources will affect the timeliness of the emergency response. Therefore, it is essential that the affected communities receive immediate relief to prevent an exacerbation of issues in the affected areas.
