Sindh Govt. Formed a Committee to Ensure Transparency in Flood Donations

sindh government formed a committee to ensure transparency in flood donations

Pakistan has received donations from all around the world and people are sympathising with the flood victims and want to help them as much as they can. Some famous personalities around the world are also visiting flood-affected areas to help the poor victims.

Since a lot of donations have been collected by the government and various NGOs, it is crucial for all the money to get into the right hands. Therefore, a committee is formed by the Sindh government to ensure transparency in flood donation. The flood relief money committee will be led by Sindh Chief Secretary Muhammad Sohail Rajput.

The chief secretary stated in a statement that the “Sindh Flood Relief Fund” will be audited by an international audit firm. The Sindh government had created a committee the day before to review the damage caused by severe rainfall and subsequent floods across the state.

The committees are made up of the concerned deputy commissioners, representatives from Corps-V, the engineering Corps, local administration, the Provincial Disaster Management Authority (PDMA), and local representatives from rain-stricken areas.

The PDMA distributed 80,000 tents and made an order for another 180,000 tents at the meeting, but the district administration generated a request for one million tents.

Owais Shah, Shahryar Sher, Amer Haider Shah, Abdul Jabbar, Rana Ansar, Mujeebul Haq, and others are among the 11 members of the committee.

The federal government developed the National Flood Response Coordination Center’s (NFRCC) ‘Digital Flood Dashboard’ earlier this month to ensure transparency in relief and restoration activities.

According to sources, after Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif’s directions, Minister for Planning and Development Ahsan Iqbal opened the ‘Digital Flood Dashboard,’ also known as the NRFCC’s executive webpage.
