Doaba is the result of the efforts of riverine communities when they were united to minimize their sufferings during flood disaster in 1987 after denial of relief from District Government. It made its first move on self help basis as community based organization from a village “Shah Din” near Rang Pur-Muzaffargarh. After 13 years of successful self-help initiatives on Disaster Risk Reduction in riverine areas of Muzaffargarh and Jhang, Doaba felt the need of sharing its experiences with other organizations and to expand its practical knowledge in disaster prone villages of other districts. Doaba got registered in 2000 as public welfare trust and is now working with more than 600 disaster prone villages of 06 Districts Multan, Muzaffargarh, Dera Ghazi Khan, Bhakkar, Layyahah and Jhang in South Punjab
