Sindh Comrades Organization organized a colorful program titled “Sindhi Culture and Situation of People of Sindh” at Village Jhalooji and Mang, to encourage the youth and children of the area show their talent.
The students of the different schools actively participated in speech and drawing competitions.
Shaista Balouch, chairperson of the Step Foundation, Waqar Phulpoto, Advocate Muhammad Tariq Mahesar, Zaheer Larik, Mazhar Ali and others addressing the program said that people of Sindh are passing through a tough time where they are deprived of social and economic justice.
“The People of Sindh are also deprived of educational and health facilities,” they said adding that flooding has affected millions of people and now they are facing a lot of problems including the lack of toilets. “Especially the women and girls are exposed to health hazards.”
They said that around 70% people don’t have access to basic hygiene supplies, and 55% don’t have access to sufficient water. Similarly, 78% of women and girls face difficulties to access latrine facilities while overall 66% of the population do not have access to toilet facilities. The community Key Informants from all 04 districts reported that the women have no access to any menstrual hygiene supplies in the current disastrous situation.
They said that government of Sindh and Federal government were behind the mass destruction, because both governments failed in rescue, relief and rehabilitation of the flood victims.
Sindh as well as Federal government exploited the miseries of the victims of flood to get money from the world, the speakers alleged.
