Rains in Makli areas particularly related to DICE villages

Due to unprecedented rainfall in August, when the entire province had been inundated, most of the Makli villages are still under floodwater. This has resulted in a great deal of damage within villages and caused a stoppage of work due to inundation and blockage of roads. The main cause of the flooding has been the water coming down from Makli Necropolis hill as well as the over-flowing of the nearby canal. All the villages in the vicinity have been submerged or washed away; however,  the structures built by HF in DICE and other HF villages have withstood the standing floodwater in the area for several weeks. Since the structures were safe, the villages were able to save their belongings. Being unable to continue working under such circumstances, those belonging to DICE villages have been encouraged to work at ZC3 for their livelihood.
