Pakistan’s worst humanitarian crisis is deepening and magnitude of devastation is increasing day by day. The floods, which affect more than 2000 lives so far, continued to unleash untold miseries and destruction all over Pakistan. Besides, at least 2 million people have been left homeless. The United Nations has declared the devastation of the floods more severe than the combined affect of 2004 tsunami, 2005 Pakistan earthquake and the 2010 Haiti earthquake.
In Such a critical and horrible condition all aspects of life required special attention for the rehabilitation process of affected people. Vets Care Organization Pakistan has been trying hard to provide relief to the flood affected animals in southern Punjab. The main focus has been to save the animals from any expected diseases through vaccination, providing emergency treatment to sick and injured animals, providing feed to the affected animals as there is a severe shortage of feed for animals because flood has destroyed 100% agriculture in area. VCO volunteers are working in different areas of Southern Punjab for disaster relief activities
VCO in collaboration with World Society for the Protection of Animals (WSPA) distributes 160,000 Kg of TMR (Total Mixed Ration) in Kot Adu (District Muzaffar Garh). Sanawan Village, Lalay Wali, Pati Ghulam Ali, Latkani, Tiba, Kot Adu City, Dera Din Panah, Pir Chaki, Chak No. 522, Chak No. 527, Chak No. 528, Moza Chaudhrian Wala, Moza Kotla are main target areas.
About 4000 bags of concentrates have also been distributed in various areas of southern Punjab in collaboration with Four Paws International.
