A tent city is being erected in Karachi’s Malir area to house the flood survivors, reported 24NewsHD TV Channel on Saturday.
Sindh government has allocated 100-acre of land to establish a tent city for flood victims. In the first phase, 2060 tents will be installed on 30 acres of land. In this regard, 600 tents have been installed so far while hundred of tents will also be erected in the area shortly for the accommodation of as many as 100,000 flood victims.
At a distance of two kilometres from the National Highway, a camp is being set up for the flood victims on the link road leading to the Super Highway.
According to the map, a 12-feet tent can accommodate five to six people. Along with accommodation, the affectees will also get other facilities in the camps. All facilities including bathrooms, drinking water, and schools will be provided in the tent city. However, the concerns of the flood survivors also remain the same.
Contrary to the management’s tall claims, the situation at the Super Highway Link Road suggests that it will take at least one week more to make the tent city functional.
