Fumigation (fogging) against mosquitoes

Flood Relief - 2011:

Heavy rains during the Fall of 2011 caused massive flooding on the east bank of the River Indus in Sindh, submerging large areas of arable land in Badin, Hyderabad, Mirpurkhas, Tharparkar, Nawabshah, and Khairpur districts.

 

Petarian Foundation mobilized its teams and has been providing relief work in Sanghar, Nawabshah and Badin districts.

 

We strongly believe that even though these people are poor and helpless, they have hope to rebuild their lives and this country.

Our Strategy and Activities:

 

This situation on ground required a number of key actions to be taken. Thus, our strategy is based on the following requirement:

  1. With the onslaught of mosquitoes leading to malaria and dengue fever, Petarian Foundation arranged for fogging machines to fumigate the areas and the water to destroy the mosquito population. Five foggers were deployed which lead to a major reduction in malaria.

  2. Medical teams:  Our teams set up medical camp in different affected districts of Sindh.

  3. Vaccinations:  Our teams vaccinated hundreds of people in the affected areas against typhoid and other diseases

  4. Food:  Over 40 tons of food was distributed in Sanghar and Nawabshah districts

  5. Mosquito nets:  Over 2,0000 mosquito nets were distributed to the people

  6. Tents: Proper tents and tarpaulin were distributed to over 500 families to provide temporary shelter to them.
