Pakistan Flood Relief

The Situation

The monsoon season may be over in Pakistan, but the aftermath of the heavy rains continue to affect the country as flood water remains in many areas. The floods have caused widespread destruction, with 1700 deaths, 1.1 million livestock lost, and 2 million homes destroyed. The standing water also breeds water-borne diseases such as dengue and malaria, with over 132,000 confirmed cases since June 2022.

Pakistan is currently facing the devastating aftermath of its monsoon season, and the consequences of this natural disaster continue to wreak havoc across the nation.
ases since June 2022.

Housing and agriculture are among the worst affected, with more than 9 million additional people estimated to be pushed into poverty unless provided with support to restore their livelihoods.

 Over two million houses will need to be rehabilitated and reconstructed, while losses in the agriculture sector would contribute to food insecurity and malnutrition, especially among women, girls and children.
