Ghulam Sakhi, 40, had a small workshop in the district centre, where he used to repair punctured car tires. The shop and its equipment were washed away by the floods. He has no job at this moment. “If we were not given this food we would be in very critical situation,” Sakhi said.
Local communities affected by the flooding are seeking help from the humanitarian community to help them find a longer-term solution to the problems caused by this kind of natural disaster. With the collaboration of other partners, WFP is looking at options for a food-for-assets project in the area which would help protect the community from future flooding.
