Volunteers from Imran Khan Foundation distributed food and medicines among the flood victims of surrounding areas of DG Khan. The relief effort was planned by the Imran Khan Foundation (IKF) under Pukaar banner to help those who have been badly affected by recent floods. Earlier, a team of Ansaars completed the survey in the affected areas to find out the neediest and carried out the need assessment.
After the survey, the volunteers from around the country came together at the IKF’s storage facility in Lahore (Gulberg) to support the relief efforts. They packed the relief goods in a way that a food hamper could be sufficient to meet the needs of family unit comprising 5 to 6 persons.
The volunteers also loaded the goods on the trucks bound for flood-affected areas. Later, these trucks left for surrounding cities of DG Khan on Friday night, 17th September, 2010. In order to have a perfect distribution among the needy, the volunteers toured each city one by one. First on their way was the area of Bhindi Salman Shah where the Ansaars distributed the relief goods in an organized manner. They also visited the areas of Bait Mandu, Ghazighat Road, Basti Sheeru, Basti Doodha and distributed the relief goods. This relief effort by IKF helped more than 2000 families when there was no one to hear their cries. The people of these areas thanked Pukaar for the initiative and acknowledged the efforts of volunteers. They also praised the hard work of IKF for helping them in the time of need.
