Shehbaz Sharif Unveils Substantial Financial Aid Package for Gwadar Flood Victims

Flood

Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif embarked on a visit to the flood-ravaged areas in Gwadar, demonstrating his commitment to addressing the aftermath of the disaster. The visit followed closely after his oath-taking ceremony as the Prime Minister of Pakistan.

During his visit, Shehbaz Sharif interacted with the affected individuals, offering both empathy and tangible support. As a crucial component of his response, the Prime Minister announced a comprehensive aid package to assist those severely impacted by the floods.

As part of the aid program, families of each deceased person in the calamity will receive Rs2 million, aiming to provide financial relief during this challenging period. Furthermore, families whose houses suffered damage in the floodwaters will be compensated with Rs750,000 each.

Recognizing the plight of those injured in the floods, Shehbaz Sharif declared an assistance amount of Rs500,000 for each affected individual. Additionally, households dealing with partial destruction of their residences will be eligible for Rs300,000 in aid.

To address the specific needs of the fishing community, the Prime Minister announced a dedicated package of Rs400 million for the repair of boats damaged due to the flood. This targeted initiative aims to revive the livelihoods of those reliant on the fishing industry.

During his visit, Shehbaz Sharif personally distributed aid cheques to the affected families, expressing the government’s unwavering commitment to supporting the people of Gwadar.

The devastating impact of torrential rains on February 26 resulted in the destruction of homes, infrastructure, and displacement of residents. Despite the immediate imposition of a flood emergency by the government, rescue efforts faced challenges due to inundated major roads.

The Prime Minister’s visit signifies not only a commitment to immediate relief but also an acknowledgment of the ongoing challenges that necessitate sustained assistance for the affected communities in Gwadar.
