Heavy monsoon rains have returned to Pakistan, further disrupting lives in areas still struggling to recover from last year’s deadly floods that affected 33 million people, claiming 1,739 lives.
Severe flooding 10 months ago killed over 1,700, displaced 8 million, and cost the economy $30 billion. The country faces lingering crop shortages, homelessness, and challenges in rebuilding, food supply, health care, and debt. Relief aid has dwindled, leaving Pakistan vulnerable to the pernicious cycle of climate change: intensified rainfall leading to severe flooding, hindering recovery efforts from previous disasters. The nation urgently needs support to break this destructive pattern.

Through our local IDRF team in Pakistan, we have wrapped up phase 1 of our Pakistan Emergency response , providing families with emergency food boxes and emergency kits which contain basic hygiene items such as soap, toothbrushes, female hygiene items, oral rehydration tabs, clean water filtration units, and solar lights.

Rebuild and Recover
Building off of our initial emergency response, IDRF will now be moving into the rebuild and recovery phase of our emergency response programming.

Our Emergency Response Approach
Our long term , ‘Brighter Future’ strategy builds upon emergency relief by providing long-term sustainable solutions to mitigate any potential disaster or crisis in the future.
Our response efforts in Pakistan include emergency first aid, food, health care support, water, hygiene, and sanitation items.
In phase 2, we focus on rebuilding the infrastructure of communities. This includes shelter rehabilitation and access to clean drinkable water.
Our recovery stage will enable businesses and schools to establish pre-disaster operations. We do this by supporting small businesses, reconstructing schools, and educational activities.
The last phase, Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) programs is establish within local communities. This will allow us to train teams on their environmental vulnerabilities to ensure that we are implementing strategies to prevent for any future natural disasters.
