SLIDE SHOW: Pakistan floods food distribution
Transcript: Waqar Ahmad (MSF assistant project coordinator): So today we have as our target population here in this distribution point - 585
Irbab Mohssen: My name is Irbab Mohssen and this place belongs to me, I am the landlord here. And we are very thankful to MSF for coming here and helping our people. They’re very generous distributing lots of stuff. Yeah, they are distributing tents, and kitchenware, and blankets and plastic sheets and even toothpaste and brushes and everything.
I have attended three distributions so far and this is the third one. This place is just safe from the flood but the water was here and the nearby villages which are like a one minute drive or so and they were very much affected by the floods that people have to move out of their houses and have to leave everything. Even I know many people who haven’t got anything in their home because the house has collapsed and the flood has taken away everything, so what they need is... they need everything, tents and whatever you are giving to them. And they need food as well because in Ramadan, as you know, they have to keep fasting from dawn to dusk and when the sun falls they are allowed to eat.
Waqar: Today, inshallah, we will cross our target number and we will cover these 885 families because we have enough kits.
