JACOBABAD DISTRICT, Pakistan, 24 October 2012 – Reshma is a cheerful first-grader with hopes and aspirations for her future. She makes beautiful dolls in her spare time.
Last month, monsoon rains flooded her village, Chandran, in Jacobabad district, Sindh. Now her immediate hope is to have her destroyed home reconstructed.
Reshma’s father is a labourer with nine other children to feed, clothe and educate. Work is scarce, and the family had barely recovered from the back-to-back monsoon floods of 2010 and 2011.
