The monsoon has caused huge damages in South Asia : 20 million people have been displaced as some of the worst floods for years.
In Pakistan, more than 2 million people have been affected and the villages in the province of Sindh and Baloutchistan are cut off from vital services, due to the destruction of infrastructures and the pollution of water resources. More than 500.000 people remain without shelter.
In order to face this situation, Premiere Urgence is implementing drinkable water distribution program in the agricultural areas of the Sindh province, in Pakistan, in partnership with Veolia Waterforce and UNICEF.
More than 8.000 persons, affected by the Pakistanis flod will get back to drinkable water access. Thanks to boat transportation and water trucking, PU will be able to carry the 5000 liters produced each hour by our water treatment unit. Premiere Urgence will then distribute drinkable water directly to remote communities in agricultural areas that are not easily reachable.
This program will also allow reducing the risks of hydro sicknesses and overall secure sanitary conditions in the concerned areas.
In Pakistan we have been working on reconstruction programmes in the Kashmir following October 2005 earthquake. Since last July, Premiere Urgence has extended its programme to the Sindh province in rural area affected by the 2007 flood.
