Description : The floods that struck Pakistan in July 2010 went on for almost three months wiping out villages from the far north to the deep south of the country. Considered to be one of the worst humanitarian disasters in recent times, around 11 million people were left homeless and 2,000 killed. The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) and the Pakistan Red Crescent Society is working to help victims of the floods and violence. For Abdul Ghafoor and his neighbours, ICRC water engineers have rehabilitated his hydro-electric station which remains the sole power generating facility in the region. In other districts, ICRC engineers have repaired water storage and filtration equipment supplying more than 30,000 local residents. Women-led households are particularly marginalised here and often left out of the registration process for relief projects. So the ICRC has designed a project to specifically benefit widow-led families, providing them with cows and calves.
