KARACHI - Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) chief Altaf Hussain has pressed the government to undertake relief efforts on war footings for rehabilitation of the people of rain-hit areas in Sindh province. He said that a number of areas in various cities of the province had been hit by cyclonic rains that had displaced several families forcing them to take shelter in camps. The MQM chief also expressed profound grief over the deaths of women and children in a roof collapse owing to heavy torrential rains in Mirpurkhas. He offered heartfelt condolences to the bereaved family and prayed for speed recovery of those injured. He also expressed deep sorrow over the severe losses caused by heavy rains in Tando Allahyar, Badin, Naukot and other parts of Sindh. Meanwhile, a relief camp has been established by the Khidmat-e-Khalq Foundation (KKF), a charitable wing of the MQM, for those displaced in Tando Allahyar on the directives of the MQM chief. The KKF has made arrangements for temporary shelters in various school buildings in Tando Allahyar for thousands of people who have been hit by torrential rains. The KKF has also made arrangements for providing food and other necessary things to the rain-affected people. Doctors of the MQM's Medical Aid Committee have been providing help to the people at the KKF camp.
