The erupted fire burnt over 250 houses into ashes and leftover 175 families’ shelterless in a small village of Udani in Tharparkar. Fortunately, no human casualty was reported. However, the fire burned cattle, jewellery and cash that were necessary for the survival of these families. The Dawood Foundation, with the support of Mariyam Dawood, took upon the task of assisting their fellow humans by helping them rebuild their lives. Engineers worked day and night to rebuild the village for victims of Udani fire by providing tents, food and clean drinking water.
