Emergency situation of food insecurity is prevailed in Tharparker district of Pakistan. The rate of death of Children is very high and on increase leading to epidemic situation. The deaths are due to prolong drought in the area, where food and sources of food gradually diminished. During the last 2 months, more than 133 children died, while many more are in hospitals and struggling for life. There is no food for the population, where children and women are highly vulnerable. Mothers have lost capability to feed children due to limited and poor food intake.
While knowing the situation at the beginning of the season, no proper measures were taken by the government. Even now when children are dying, the respective governments are not taking it serious and just looking for excuses and blaming each other’s. An urgent action is required by humanitarian organizations to save the lives of innocent children by providing them food and water and health services.
