OXFAM - 100 Days On - Emergency Flood Response Sindh Province, Pakistan 2011

Herdsmen lead buffalo to drink in a sub drain within the displaced flood community of Badin District, Sindh, Pakistan on November 2, 2011. In August 2011, Heavy monsoon rains triggered flooding in lower parts of Sindh and northern parts of Punjab. The regular migration of livestock each year is was from Badin district to Tharparkar. Usually they are moved in June but as there had been no rains, the majority of herdsmen did not undertake the migration. The rains beginning in August forced them to move to Tharparkar and by this time the majority of decent fodder had been washed away. 100,000 cattle died as a result. .
