Updates from Pakistan

Our Head of Fundraising, Zia Salik, recently visited the affected parts of Pakistan – where vulnerable communities are facing the effects of extreme flooding.

Read his updates from his visit and see how your donations are supporting the most vulnerable families.

Pakistan Floods: More than 33 million people have been affected 

Extremely heavy rainfall in Pakistan has resulted in catastrophic flash flooding leaving one-third of the country underwater.

According to local authorities the death toll has surpassed 1,600, with over 12,500 injured and millions displaced.

Described as a “climate catastrophe” by the UN Secretary General, the floods have left over 6 million people in urgent need of humanitarian aid.

Many parts of Pakistan have become inaccessible, and rescuers are struggling to evacuate thousands of stranded people from affected areas. Balochistan and Sindh provinces are the hardest hit areas.

Islamic Relief Pakistan is responding, providing vital humanitarian aid. Please donate generously and help save lives.


220,000 homes have been completely destroyed

A staggering 33 million people had been badly affected by the flooding according to local government. 220,000 homes have been completely destroyed, and 662,00 homes have been damaged.

Over 3.6 million acres of cultivated crops has been affected, and at least 800,000 livestock have perished. The local communities are heavily reliant on their crop and livestock to feed themselves.

Latest reports from local authorities have confirmed that 5,563km of road infrastructure have been partially or completely damaged, and 243 bridges have been destroyed.

Without access to urgent medical aid, food, clean water, and adequate shelter, those who have fled to higher ground will be at even more risk.

Islamic Relief is on the ground providing life-saving aid

Islamic Relief, a member of the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC), has been working in Pakistan since 1992, and were one of the first aid agencies to respond to initial flooding.

Our emergency teams are continuing their efforts, and are on the ground right now, working with local communities to establish how best to support affected families, who urgently need food, shelter, bedding, and hygiene items.

Islamic Relief Pakistan has already supported more than 400,000 people in Balochistan, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Sindh. Your donations so far have enabled us to distribute cash grants, food packs, tents, kitchen sets and hygiene kits. Our teams in Pakistan are also working with the local authorities as part of a coordinated emergency response.

We are also committed to helping communities recover from the disaster as quickly as possible to ensure that the most vulnerable people do not continue to suffer the terrifying impact of the flash floods.

The situation is expected to deteriorate with more rainfall expected, therefore we desperately need to respond to meet the ongoing and immediate needs of those who have been affected.
