RESPONSE – Reaching out to the devastated

In a world torn by selfish motives, conflicts, hostilities, disasters, pain and misery, we rarely come across true compassion that is the driving force behind the TNW Foundation. Irrespective of caste, creed or religion, the selfless and hardworking team members of RESPONSE are perpetually engaged in a constant strife to uplift the poor and to help the troubled. Although TNW had been serving as a networking e-platform for the NGOs since July 2009, it decided to be hands-on during the devastating floods of 2010, in Southern Punjab. They supported the flood hit population through provision of relief items, food, WASH facilities, rehabilitation of schools, revival of livelihood, and construction of homes. Their untiring and selfless efforts won them the very well-deserved accolades at all levels. There has been no looking back since then, and the RESPONSE team has promptly responded to the sufferers of all natural and man-made disaster across Pakistan.

Floods 2010:

 

Distribution of Relief Goods: During the relief phase of 2010 floods, TNW distributed around 230,000 relief item (food &nonfood) of 356 types among more than 7711 affected families at 72 locations of Southern Punjab districts.

Restoring Livelihood of Carpet Weavers: In district Layyah, (UC: Kotla Haji Shah) floods 2010 destroyed 263 units of small scale household carpet industry, ending the livelihood of 1200 families. In response, TNW successfully completed the project of rebuilding 100 sheds, along with provision of related facilities for the most deserving beneficiaries thereby restoring the livelihood of 400 families.

Clean Drinking Water for the Victims: With the support of WHO (World Health Organization), TNW team took 250 water samples from the affected areas of Layyah and Muzaffargarh districts to assess the biological contamination in drinking water. Consequently, 1000 Biosand Water filters were installed to ensure the availability of clean drinking water. Simultaneously awareness sessions about the need and use of safe drinking water were also conducted.

Rehabilitation of Feeder School: The 2010 Flood completely devastated 22 NCHD Feeder Schools, thus disrupting educational services for 1225 boys & girls. TNW took the responsibility to rebuild those schools and revive the educational setup for the students of far flung areas. Along with school building renovation & reconstruction, provision of furniture for teacher & students, stationary and bags was a major contribution.

Construction of Permanent Shelters:

TNW designed two separate projects; shelters comprising one and two rooms respectively.

Two Rooms Houses: These complete houses in Layyah district, comprise two bedrooms, a veranda, a kitchen and a bathroom.  30 Target beneficiaries were identified as the most needy and vulnerable; especially, shelter less widows, orphans, disabled or the poor parents with a large number of children particularly girls.

Latrines and Hand Pumps: In district Layyah, 22 permanent latrines were constructed in schools with missing facilities. Hand pumps were also installed in the schools. These interventions facilitated the poor young students to have proper sanitation and drinking water source. In Basti Light House Layyah, TNW built 30 latrines and laid underground low cost sanitation system.

Free Health Camps: During and after the floods, the affectees, especially women and children face svere health issues. During the disaster response it was a routine activity of TNW to hold medical camps in the affected areas with provision of facilities like free checkup & medicines for the poor patients.
