Support for Victims of the Flood this Year

Every year, Pakistan is attacked by natural disasters such as earthquakes and floods. The flood in 2010 was the worst natural disaster since its national foundation. Approximately 3 million people were suffered and one fifth of the land was flooded. Monsoons from summer and autumn every year tend to be increasing in length in recent years so they are serious threats to people.

In August and September this year, the wholesale floods occurred in several places in Pakistan and caused great damage on about 2.5 million of people as of now. Although some humanitarian organizations have started to support victims since the flood occurred, it is still shorthanded in many areas. There are some areas that are still relatively untouched.

We are now preparing to distribute emergency supplies in Punjab state where the flood left the worst damage.

According to our field survey, we found out that the victims needed various support such as daily commodities, foods, temporary shelters, sanitary facilities, recovery of livelihood and so on. First of all, we are planning on distributing daily commodities including sanitary materials in order to recover the minimum standard of living for the areas where enough support hasn’t yet been provided.
