Visit to Charsadda- Drabb Majoke & fakiraabad Majoke
The Vision21 team visited Mera Prang Camp in Charsadda, last sunday Oct 10th 2010, to distribute food rations to our identified clusters, the displaced families of Drabb Majoke and Fakirabad majoke villages.
The team consisted of 6 people. We had earlier visited the villages in September for the assessment and planned to distribute the dry ration packs to the affectees, as they had told us that food was their main concern. We had taken with us the dry ration packs containing the supplies for one month for 200 families. We also donated 500 bottles of IV solution in two Ummah welfare trust relief camps, that are set up in the local paper mill, and the degree college Charsadda.
In addition, we planned to register the displaced families, so that we may involve them in our future efforts for rehabilitation and relief more systematically.
