We would like to draw your attention towards the devastation caused by flash floods in a very remote area of Pakistan that still lies unnoticed and abandoned by the Government of Pakistan and the news media.
The University of Lahore (UOL) Relief Team visited the area after getting a distress call from a local member of the community named Qari Rehmat Ullah
You may kindly note that The Trekking Team of UOL has been to the area many times in the past and has developed strong ties with the community there.
The village of Tatto is located in the Himalayas near the foothills of Nanga Parbat. This village lies along the Raikot Nalla which emerges from Raikot Glacier. This year due to unusually heavy monsoon rains, the Nalla caused immense damage to the village of Tatto, which already is a very poor community.
The terrain to Tatto Village is very tough. Not many people can reach this area because of the dangerous jeep road at a very steep and high altitude. The meager earnings by the locals are made only during three months in a year as jeep fare and porterage.
