Pakistan monsoon floods 2011: Women are walking through the flood water to fetch drinking water from near by village. The monsoon floods in August 2011 badly affected several districts in Southern parts of the Sindh province.


Carrying earthen pitchers, the Thari women are going to fetch water from a small pond filled with rainwater outside their village in Thar Desert. The Thar Desert, one of the biggest deserts of South Asia, is located on eastern corner of Pakistan’s Sindh province along Indian border. Residents of this wonderful desert are facing acute drinking water shortage—photo by Amar Guriro

    • There is a successful Rain Water Harvesting Programme carried out by WaterAid. This has just completed in one village but needs more resources to scale it up in other parts of desert where ground water is highly contaminated by flouride.
