PESHAWAR After the deadliest rains and devastating floods, which claimed lives of more than 1430 people and injured thousands others, it is feared that many waterborne diseases might spring up in the worst-hit districts of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. Waterborne diseases like malaria, gastro, and diarrhoea might affect the people as there is a great shortage of potable water in the flooded areas of the province. Despite a lapse of one week, the Government has yet to make arrangements to supply clean drinking water to the inhabitants of the region. Dozens of people are still living under the open sky and there are no visible arrangements to accommodate them in camps. In Charsadda, Wajid Ullah, head of a 12-member family, who ran his shop in Sardaryab area, stated that he had lost his hard earned money, house, crops, but luckily saved his family members by sending them to his brothers residence in Peshawar. However, like many others, he also complained that they were not being assisted in this hour of need. Zaiban Bibi, hailing from Nowshehra Kalan, a village of about 80,000 people, said that she had lost whatever little she had, even her goats and cows. The flood victims also complained that there were not being provided food and medicines. Like other districts, the scale of devastation is unimaginable in the low-lying areas of Malakand Division. A social worker, Nawaz Ali, from Swat, while talking to this scribe said that he, along with eight other colleagues, was trying his level best to assist the needy people but it was not possible for them to do it all on their own. He informed that the far-off areas like Matta, Kalam, Bahrain and Madain were cut-off from the rest of the province, as all the bridges and means of communication had been badly affected due to heavy floods. Gul Mohammad, another citizen from Kalam said that still over 400 people were stranded, as all the leading roads to the areas had been swept away. On the other hand, the relief camps established in various parts of the province by the provincial Government and Pak-Army continued assisting people as they provided food and shelter the affected people. Although all the relief camps set up by the provincial Government are getting the services of medical practitioners for the treatment of patients, yet it is needed to broaden the medical facilities to the victims. The Flood Warning Cell (FWC) recorded River Swat and River Indus in high flow, wherein the outflow of water in an extinct river was 19146 cusecs at Khwazakhela was while the water flow was recorded 142825 cusecs at Nowshera.
