Disaster Management Fund
Disaster Management Fund (DMF) is designed to provide quick financial assistance to poor families in order to help them cope with and recover from disasters; prevent them from selling advance labour that leads the poor to become indebted to unscrupulous money lenders or valuable assets and further to enable them to smooth out consumption. This fund is utilized in times of disaster or afterwards for restoration of their livelihood, rehabilitation, urgent medical services, water and sanitation, and to meet emergency consumer needs. PKSF mobilized this fund from its own income and also from other organizations. The primary activities of this programme include repairing houses, tube wells and latrines; restoring existing IGAs; ensuring consumer items during post-disaster period.
