An appeal to national and international organizations, Pakhtun Diaspora, national and international community
Jan 21, 2015
For the last 4-days there has been raining in almost all parts and districts/Agencies of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and FATA which caused a lot of destruction and devastated many houses especially huts and mud built houses. The flood caused due to heavy downpour and gushed into the settlements especially in rural areas of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa which has demolished almost all houses and million of the inmates are stranded in water. Those who have remained stranded in their demolished houses are in miserable conditions and are having no option except to weep or pray to God to help them all. There are many instances where the family members have been divided into two parts. The parents particularly fathers have remained in the safer areas while their children who remain homes at time of the rain got stranded and are still in same condition. Those children have been weeping for the last three days and nights but there is non to come to their rescue and get them rid of this miserable condition and to take them to some safer areas and provide them with food and safe potable waters. The stranded people especially women and children are having nothing to eat as the little or small stock they had has already either finished or drained by the flood water. There are sick and old people also who are still in trouble stranded there in their houses with no medicines and other edible. This situation is not related with one or two particular area. The entire Khyber Pakhtunkhwa has been facing with same situations and people are in great trouble. They need to be evacuated first and then other facilities and needs be provided on emergency steps. The TV Channels and other humanitarian institutions have been calling the government to come to the rescue but the situations are so worst and are out of the control that only the government will not be able to handle it alone. The governments are not capable in even shiny days to help the people how can it would be able to come in help the citizens in rainy days?
The people need food, clean drinking water, clothes, tents, edibles, Medicines, and above all their evacuation is foremost needed and for this purpose small boats are required on emergency bases to bring the stranded people out of their places to comparatively safer places and spots.
