Pakistan Flood-affected Children

On 11th September (next day of Eid-ul-fitr) we visited the flood affected families, who reside in different schools of Jahangira and Akora Khattak (Khyber Pakhtunkhwa) to distribute our last package of food. We bring food for about 2500 people. In each camp we handover food to camp incharge, so no direct interaction with flood affectees. However in Government Centennial Model High School Akora Khattak we went inside to distribute food. As we enter the school premises, the kids present there rush toward us to shake hand with us. This was unexpected but exciting situation for all of us. According to our tradition on Eid-ul-Fitr children receive money (Eidi) from their elders. So we decided to give some money to children. We line up them for better distribution. I saw hope and happiness on their faces as we handed money to them. Here are some pictures I took at that occasion.

How sad you the whole country to have these bad floods Birdy. It does not take mush to put a smile on the face of a child. They ask for so little and anthing small will please them. Keep up the good work. I am sure these people appreciate it more than words can ever say.

Birdy, my heart goes out to the people affected by the devastating floods. I'm glad you've been doing your part to help in your own way. I hope that the situation continues to improve, especially for these sweet little children.

Thanks Joan for your comment and concern. You are right, a little thing can make them happy. Even spending a while with them is enough to make them please.

Thanks Kanak for your comment. The situation is now better and most people have already returned to their homes. However those who have lost their homes are still in miserable condition.
