The Emirates Red Crescent started the execution of the first phase of the relief programme urgently to make sure that the basic needs, such as shelter and food of hundreds and thousands of families, were met.

The first phase of the relief programme concentrated on giving support to areas most destroyed due to floods, such as the districts of Jhal Magsi and Lasbela.

At a later stage, the authority will also send relief convoys to several other areas in the province to help their residents deal with the present situation and come over the challenges which they face in terms of securing shelter and food.

The ERC’s support took into account the needs of vulnerable groups such as women, children, the older adults, among others, as part of its humanitarian programmes to help those impacted by floods.
