Heavy rains during the Fall of 2011
caused massive flooding on the east bank of the River
Indus in Sindh, submerging large areas of arable land in
Badin, Hyderabad, Mirpurkhas, Tharparkar, Nawabshah, and
Petarian Foundation mobilized its teams
and has been providing relief work in Sanghar, Nawabshah
and Badin districts.
We strongly believe that even though these people are
poor and helpless, they
have hope to rebuild their lives and this country.

Our Strategy and Activities:
This situation on ground required a
number of key actions to be taken. Thus, our strategy is
based on the following requirement:
With the onslaught of mosquitoes leading
to malaria and dengue fever, Petarian Foundation
arranged for fogging machines to fumigate the areas and
the water to destroy the mosquito population. Five
foggers were deployed which lead to a major reduction in
Medical teams: Our teams set up
medical camp in different affected districts of Sindh.
Vaccinations: Our teams vaccinated
hundreds of people in the affected areas against typhoid
and other diseases
Food: Over 40 tons of food was
distributed in Sanghar and Nawabshah districts
Mosquito nets: Over 2,0000 mosquito
nets were distributed to the people
Tents: Proper tents and tarpaulin were
distributed to over 500 families to provide temporary
shelter to them.
