Flooding in Pakistan

We are responding to severe flooding in Pakistan.

Please donate today to provide emergency shelter for families affected by disasters around the world.

Severe monsoon flooding in Pakistan has left thousands of people with nowhere to live. The disaster has affected more than 33 million people.

The sheer scale of the flooding is disastrous – people’s homes have sunk in flood water or been swept away. Around 1 million houses have been damaged or destroyed, leaving behind millions in need of urgent shelter.

We have partnered with Islamic Relief Pakistan to support thousands of people left with nowhere to live. Aid includes tents, water filters and carriers, mosquito nets, and solar lights.

 

Our changing climate is creating an unprecedented need for emergency shelter around the world.

More devastating floods, more extreme storms and scorching droughts will force millions more people from their homes, and make more places in our world unliveable.

Please donate today. Your support will provide emergency shelter for families affected by flooding in Pakistan and other disasters around the world.

Where is Pakistan?


Pakistan is located in South Asia. It borders with India, China, Afghanistan and Iran.

Pakistan has a varied climate and geography, with vast mountain ranges in the north, an area of desert in the west and the Indus River plain in the centre.

Communities in Pakistan have suffered from severe flooding many times in the past. Most notably, the 2011 floods happened as people were still trying to recover from the 2010 monsoon floods that affected 18 million people.

We are responding


Our initial emergency response is supporting thousands of people in Sindh with tents and household items. We have delivered training on how to use our equipment and tents.

For our second project, we are planning to help thousands more people with cash assistance. Cash empowers local communities to make choices about hiring skilled labour and the materials they need to rebuild their homes. It will be distributed alongside household items provided by Islamic Relief.

Please donate today. Your support will provide emergency shelter for families affected by disaster around the world.
