The SEPLAA Foundation with the help of it’s Social Media think thank, the Seeds of Education, Policy & Legal Awareness Association (SEPLAA) has played a significant role in the relief efforts to help the flood victims of the 2010 Pakistan floods. Several of the SEPLAA Team members and volunteers have worked tirelessly to contribute.
Relief was given and in the following main areas:
- August 2010: Food Relief Trip to Muzaffargarh
- August- October 2010: Flood Relief & Provision of Clean Drinking Water
|August 2010 Relief Trip to Muzaffargarh The SEPLAA Foundation went on a trip to Muzaffargarh on 28th August, 2010. At the end of the day, the team of 7 volunteers had distributed family packs to 550 families, given another 500 straw mats to families and distributed 100 goody bags with sweets and toys to children…and had taken lots of pictures as evidence of relief distribution! ‘‘When we got there, there were no relief camps set up and no other team was helping. There was no governmental presence. As the lone female member of the team, the women thronged me with appeals of aid and asked me to help them with things they could not ask the male relief workers. Their eyes were begging for compassion and their hands for anything they could take with them.”
