The MR team were deployed at Swat (KP Province),  Sukkur and Thatta (both in Sindh Province) today to distribute more relief supplies which included food items, school kits, tents, jerry cans and the iWater systems. The distribution efforts were executed successfully amidst much challenges given the huge number of displaced persons spread over vast and remote areas and scorching temperature of around 45-50 degrees celsius. Till today, clean and safe water remains as the top priority for essential relief supplies required on the ground.
