PAKISTAN FLOODS APPEAL
Support families who have lost everything
Monsoon rains and devastating flash flooding have left more than one-third of Pakistan completely submerged. 6.4 million people are in need of urgent assistance and millions are struggling to survive without food, shelter or drinking water. With no signs of the torrential rain stopping, the situation is going to get even worse.
Approximately 33 million people have been impacted by the torrential rainfall, which has destroyed over 287,000 homes and damaged another 662,000, displacing a huge number of families.
There has been widespread damage to infrastructure including over 17,000 schools, several thousand health facilities, 3,500km of roads and more than 145 bridges.
At least 793,900 livestock have died and 2 million acres of agricultural land have been damaged, with the potential to impact long-term food security following the flooding.
Flooding of this scale is unprecedented in Pakistan and requires an immediate emergency response.
It is now a race against time to reach as many people as possible before an expected outbreak of cholera.
It is vital that we act quickly after such a massive disaster. Can we count on your support today to help people who have lost everything?
