Background: Torrential monsoon rains triggered severe flooding in Sindh Province during August 2011. These rains caused widespread breaches in the agricultural and saline water canals, particularly in the Left Bank Outfall Drain, which exacerbated flood impact in Badin and adjoining districts. The early recovery needs of the affected area called for immediate response to reach out to the communities for the restoration of their livelihoods, rehabilitation of damaged infrastructure and provide safety nets to the vulnerable population groups (mainly women). In this regard UNDP decided to mobilize existing partners under GEF Small Grants Programme that have field presence and ability to reach out to the most affected communities in Badin district.
Team work, spirit of sisterhood and communal care is promising. Our "Cash-for-Work" program for the women to repair their own houses with mud plaster and receive Rupees 339/day.
