During the devastating floods of 2022, numerous families faced the harsh reality of losing their homes and livelihoods, watching everything they had built over a lifetime washed away. Among those affected was Shamal, a mother of five from Sindh, who, like many, had to endure months of living under the open sky.


Upon returning to her village, Shamal discovered her home reduced to rubble. With nothing left to rebuild, she and her children had to live in a temporary shelter for an entire year.

“It was very difficult for us to live in the shelter; it was just there to protect us from the scorching sun. I started a small tuck shop with all the money that I had, just so I could provide food for my children. Therefore, I couldn’t rebuild my house.”

Islamic Relief provided her with a new home. We have been working to provide permanent shelters to the most affected communities, helping them rebuild their lives.


“We will not have to sleep under the open sky in winters. My children are protected and they have nothing to fear now, I am relieved as our biggest issue has been resolved.”
