Daughter died due to food, water shortage, Khairpur family says

78

A family from Sindh, displaced due to the recent catastrophic flooding in the country, has claimed that their daughter — a toddler — died at a flood relief camp in the Kot Diji area of the Khairpur district due to a lack of basic supplies such as food, water and mosquito nets.

The father of the victim, Mumtaz Gopang, told media that his daughter passed away last night. “She was hungry and ill for several days […] but no one helped us and my daughter died right in front of my eyes.”

Gopang, who has been staying at a relief camp established at the Kot Diji City High School, complained that there was no potable water, food, tents or mosquito nets at the camps.

Kot Diji Assistant Commissioner (AC) Asim Abbasi, while confirming the incident, said that the toddler had been sick for the past few days and was moved to the hospital by the district administration.
