A third of Pakistan is currently under-water. That is 33% of the entire nation.
Pakistan’s government has declared a national emergency as rain-induced floods have so far killed 1136 people, including 343 children, and a total of 1 million homes have been damaged under waters.
Agriculture, business, and livestock have been severely damaged causing an economic downfall across the country.
How IDRF is helping
Through our local IDRF team in Pakistan, we are currently providing families with emergency food boxes and Family Emergency Kits which contain basic hygiene items such as soap, toothbrushes, female hygiene items, as well as oral rehydration tabs, clean water filtration units, and solar lights. Our kits also provide mosquito nets, blankets, pillows, mattresses, and kitchen items. In addition, we are also providing livestock feed for families.
Our teams are also looking into shelter rehabilitation as part of the ongoing response to the effects of such massive flooding.
For this emergency response, IDRF is directly working through our IDRF registered charity team in Pakistan.
