As deadly floods continue to hit Pakistan since mid-June, nearly one-third of Pakistan is now submerged in water. More than 33 million people have been displaced, including Afghan refugees. Over 600,000 homes have been destroyed, millions of acres of crops damaged, and nearly 800,000 livestock killed. And that’s only so far during this ongoing emergency.
Children and families in Pakistan require life-saving supplies like food, tents, medicine, hygiene products, and clean drinking water. In a country that is already experiencing food shortages, one of the worst effects of climate change, the flooding has made a bad situation worse. An increased risk of diseases due to lack of hygiene facilities and clean drinking water threatens regions hardest hit by flooding. Without international support, Pakistan will struggle to overcome this catastrophic event. Help send emergency aid today.
