The members and volunteers of this organization distributed relief among thousands of families in flood affected areas of Srinagar, Budgam, Baramulla, Islamabad, Bandipora, Kulgam and Pulwama. In District Budgam, a tent colony was established at Ompora for the displaced people where the arrangements for their food and shelter were made. Thousands of people of the surrounding villages got benefitted. Moreover, in Srinagar at Iqbalabad, Bemina, Mustafa Abad, Zainakot, Budshah Nagar Natipora etc Relief Camps were established which are providing help and support to the sufferers of adjoining areas. Dozens of Medical Camps were organized in areas like Iqbalabad, Bemina, Gousia Colony Bemina, Hamdania Colony, Chattabal, Mustafa Abad, Zainakot, Budshah Nagar Natipora, Lasjan, Raj Bagh, Narbal and other affected areas where a team of Doctors examined at-least 4000 patients and provided free medicines to them.

Sakhawat Centre started a drive for cleaning and sanitation of affected areas and as a part of this programme, volunteers of Sakhawat Centre J&K helped the Administration of SMHS Hospital in their cleaning drive. In addition to this, at-least hundred such areas were taken up for sanitation where the sanitation material was distributed.

In the first phase of relief and rehabilitation programme, Sakhawat Centre decided to provide cash assistance of Rs.10,000.00 to such 500 families whose lone bread-earner has died and to those whose house has fully collapsed and are in a pathetic condition.

In this connection a relief distribution function was organized by Sakhawat Centre on 4th of October 2014 Saturday 2.00 pm at Iqbal Memorial Institute Girls, Iqbalabad, Bemina, Srinagar where in such 500 families where given pays account cheques of Rs. 10,000.00 each. The total amount to be distributed is Rs.50.00 lacs from our own resources. May Allah accept our this effort and give courage to the sufferers to start their life with the renewed zeal.

The number of sufferers is so huge that it seems impossible to reach to one and all but we have unflinching faith in Allah Subhanaho-Wata’alla that if people particularly those who are resourceful come forward generously to help the flood sufferers, we can succeed in our mission of relief and rehabilitation.

Our hearts bleed for the suffering people. We make a humble Appeal to the people to please donate generously for this programme and deposit donations in our Account No.CD - 2300 J and K Bank, New Secretariat Road, Srinagar.

May Allah help us all in this endeavour.
