The floods in Pakistan have been devastating. The world seems to paying much less attention than we should. This is catastrophe of our making. The people of Pakistan are paying the price for climate changing behaviours that they haven’t engaged in at anywhere near the rate we (in the west) have. It is absolutely our responsibility to help them recover.
A third of Pakistan is now under water. Millions of people have lost everything. If you can please donate to one of the many organisations providing aid.
UNICEF are working to provide food, shelter and healthcare of children. They are also providing families with hygiene kits to reduce disease outbreaks and setting up temporary education centres.
Alkhidmat are providing regular meals, clean water and medical assistance in flood impacted areas.
IRC have already reached 20,000 with critical food, water and medical supplies. They a desperately need donations to continue this work.
