Dear All

In support of the Drought Relief Efforts in The Tharparker Desert, the HOT
Community has a Humanitarian Mapping Project (HMP) underway to map
population areas, access roads and airfields as well as water sources and
other critical information.

The Tharparker region in Pakistan is the world's 18th largest desert and
has been in a state of drought since late 2013. Recently more than 100
people have died as a result of the effects of the drought.

The Pakistan Government has mobilized to assist this stricken area and this
HMP will be useful to support relief efforts by agencies attempting to
reach all the people in need.

Full background information on the drought and mapping needs are on the HMP
and Tasking Manger job <http://tasks.hotosm.org/job/479> exists for the
area and is over 60% completed.

Please help with mapping and validation so this task may be completed.
