Emergency disaster relief

Outside of the Sherpao Basti, Rehnuma also plays a major role in the relief efforts post natural disasters in Pakistan. In the past Rehnuma has built shelters, homes and medical facilities for people who have been ravaged by floods and earthquakes which have recently plagued Pakistan.

Rehnuma works with a vast network of other NGOs and co-ordinates with federal institutions to enable access to the worst of the stricken areas. The trustees personally visit a disaster area to ascertain the immediate and the long term needs of the community.

They then supervise the delivery of relief materials and the building of permanent structures to ensure that the help needed is delivered directly to the stricken people and not pilfered along the way.
