I arrived in Badin district, southern Sindh early November 2011 on assignment for Oxfam to cover their response to the recent flooding in the province where millions of people had been displaced and crops, livestock as well as livelihoods had been destroyed due to the floods.

En novembre 2011, je me suis rendu dans le district de Badin, dans le sud du Sindh, où Oxfam m’avait envoyé en mission pour couvrir son intervention suite aux récentes inondations qui avaient sévi dans cette province, entraînant le déplacement de millions de personnes et la destruction des cultures, du bétail et des moyens de subsistance.

My field visit from Hyderabad to Mirpur Khas was like déjà vu. As we traveled to selected Union Councils (UCs) of Mirpur Khas (Digri, Jodo, Nau Kot and Fazil Phambiriya) I saw acres and acres of land on which cotton and sugar cane should have been growing, now inundated. Hundreds of people recently displaced because of the monsoon rains and consequential flooding running after trucks and vehicles for help; mostly women, children and elderly taking shelter under makeshift tents on the road side.

It’s often the unexpected things that cause the most impact. My five day visit to Sindh province in southern Pakistan in the first week of September proved to be no exception.

The trip had been planned for weeks; I was going to visit our local partners and projects in the province to see the progress being made in helping flood ravaged communities to recover after the catastrophic 2010 floods. What I hadn’t anticipated was that I would find myself in the midst of another flooding emergency.

Alex Renton visits Pakistan, where the effects of the floods are still being felt more than 7 months later.

The injustice of the flood and its aftermath was clear to see from the causeway where we met the fishermen. On one side were the drowned fields and – in the distance – the hump in the water that was Mumtaz Ali's village, only to be reached by canoe now.
