Sindhis who never left Sindh are in a Terrible state!

There were thousands of Sindhis living along the banks of the Indus on government land.

Many of them were told to take and settle these riverine areas by local landowners. And so they did.

For  60+ years, poor families claimed a small tract of parched land, worked it and made a home.

Due to Indus floods – Now, they are homeless, driven away by impossible waves that have washed away all evidence of their life’s toil.

They have no papers, no deeds to show the land as theirs.

They are left with nothing and have no claim to anything.
