In today’s episode of the Tribune Take we take you to Badin, in Sindh, where victims of this year’s devastating floods lay on roadsides waiting helplessly as winter approaches.
Saba Imtiaz, reporter the Express Tribune, discusses the issue of finding a viable livelihood for the people left homeless after the rains. Imtiaz says many farmers have turned to alternate sources of income such as fishing and brick laying to survive. Despite all their efforts however, disaster is looming in the form of the upcoming winter.
With large amounts of stagnant water in the region, winter may be much harsher for the occupants of various relief camps. Most of the camps are equipped with tents designed for hot summer months leaving flood affectees exposed and helpless as so far supplies of blankets number as low as one blanket for two to three families.
