Gulsima, a 66-year-old from Barwar, District Kila Saif Ullah in Balochistan endured the aftermath of devastating floods that shattered everything. Alongside her family and fellow villagers, they sought refuge in the mountains as relentless rains triggered flash floods, wiping away their homes and possessions.
“I have never witnessed such torrential rains that left nothing behind but us, clinging to hope. Those days were the worst, with no food or shelter. Our home, a safe space for years, was mercilessly destroyed.”
During these desperate times, Islamic Relief extended a helping hand, providing Gulsima and her family with resilient shelter – a safe haven that will protect them from the looming threat of future floods.
“Alhamdulillah, we now have a secure roof over our heads. Seeing my children happy and safe brings me immense joy.”
