No more problems please!

We consider rain as a blessing because it is important for our daily needs of water, agriculture cultivation and to reduce the heat of extreme summer. We pray for rains in the mosques when there aren’t any or less in quantity in summers. But sometimes those blessing turn in to curse and the only reason of this is the poor system of rainwater drainage system, deforestation and bad quality construction of the streams border walls.
Now it is 4th consecutive year when hundreds of thousands of Pakistani families are suffering with monsoon rains all over the country. The rain water become flood due to deforestation and it destroy everything which comes in its way.

We still remember year 2010 when more than 20million people of Pakistani directly affected with rains and many lost their lives and the tools of livelihood.  Approximately one-fifth of Pakistan's total land area was underwater.
We didn’t learn from 2010 floods and the same case happened in 2011 when 361 people were killed and more than 5.3 million people and 1.2 million homes affected across the province of Sindh as a result of monsoon rains but luckily other parts of Pakistan didn’t much affected in 2011.
The story of floods continued in 2012 and in September more than 100 people died and thousands of houses destroyed in Khyber Pukhtunkhwa, Punjab and upper Sindh.
In the current year the disaster has started again from last week when the heavy rains started. Reports indicate heavy monsoon rains have claimed over 80 lives across Pakistan, displaced hundreds, ravaged thousands of acres of standing crops and caused colossal damages to houses and infrastructure.



Affected community always looking forward to the government and aid agencies to support them in the time of trouble but time by time the amount of aid has decreased for Pakistan which directly affecting the affected communities more.
We really hope and pray that monsoon part of 2013 will not turn into 2010 kind of floods and people of Pakistan who are already suffering with many problems will not suffer anymore.
