HYDERABAD (AFP) Our life is worse than death. Eid is for the living, but we are neither alive nor dead, says a solemn 15-year-old Rukhsana. We have no clothes, no food, no shoes and no home. My brother is small, he cant fight the looters who snatch all the food from the aid trucks, she says. Abandoned by her father after her mother died, the teenage refugee will spend Saturdays Eid holiday with her grandmother and 10-year-old brother in a makeshift camp 450 kilometres south of her hometown of Garhi Khero. Bringing an end to the fasting month of Ramazan, Eid should be an occasion for family celebration and gift-giving, but for the poor and hungry flood survivors, this years Eid offers more rain and little joy. In southern Hyderabad, a city now teeming with more than one million people displaced by the floodwaters, Rukhsana mills gloomily around a camp lined with donated tarpaulin tents filling the grounds of a vegetable market. When we were at home, our grandmother would arrange something for us on Eid, but now we dont even have a home, she says woefully. Eid is a time of lavish celebration for those who can afford it. Women don new dresses and cook special feasts for big family gatherings, while children are given special Eid pocket money Eidi to buy sweets and toys. But in Sindh, the worst hit by weeks of catastrophic flooding, weather forecasters predict more rain will come on Saturday (today), threatening to turn thousands of unhygienic relief camps into muddy bogs. Already, humid conditions in southern belt have scorched the skin of those eking out a living without proper shelter, and without enough food and water to get by. Flood survivors say this years festival offers no respite from their grim reality, and recall instead golden memories of Eid celebrations back home. We had our own houses, buffalos and crops. We would celebrate at home with joy and enthusiasm, says 45-year-old farmer Haji Hussain, wistfully. But now we have no money, no food and no clothes to celebrate and have fun, says the father of eight, who migrated from his home of Ghauspur. The prize buffalos he brought with the family were stolen, he says. Now I am penniless. My children are sad and desperate because I have nothing to buy them - no toys, clothes or shoes. We cant be happy this Eid, he says. Mother-of-four Karima Bibi, 30, says she is also powerless to provide her children with a break from the misery of the floods, that have already claimed 1,760 lives and threaten more with outbreaks of waterborne disease. Eid is for those who have money and shelter and who have something to give to their children. We have nothing. We dont even have shelter to save our children from the scorching heat, she says. This year we will wear the same old clothes and will just give our children any food we are given, she says.
