With the fast-approaching winter, Roots for Equity and Pakistan Kissan Mazdoor Tehreek has initiated a “Donate a Razai Campaign,” in the monsoon/floods affected areas, with each razai costing PKR 3,500. These razais will be stitched by women living in flood affected areas in Khairpur, Ghotki, and Shikarpur. A pool of 55 women have been created who will be provided raw material for the preparation. Their labor after asking them, has been set at PKR 700/razai. The razais will be distributed in the same districts where they are made as per the most vulnerable households with priority given to pregnant women, or women with infants, the elderly and or persons with disabilities.
The initiative not only provides the most vulnerable some protection from the cold, but also provides women with a livelihood of PKR 7,600 per woman. We have pledged 600 razais for affected families and have been able to generate funds for 300 razais. We are asking for donations to be able to reach our target of at least 600 razais, if not more. Donations can be made at:
