** The people of Darolai and Gurnai villages in Union Council Mankiyal have been entangled in constructing a wooden bridge since August 1, 2010—after the floods. They do the work on volunteer basis through a collective endeavor called “Ashar”. We provided lunch for them on one occasion. On that day we also gave them Tops juice provided by Ms Tahira Abdullah's Uncle. On that day there were 230 people in the Ashar.

On October 6, 2010 IBT distributed 25 tents among the most needy floods affected families in union council Bahrain and union council Mankiyal. These winterized tents were provided by the Civil Society of Islamabad through Ghazala Minallah. Each tent cost Rs. 18,000.
