Pakistan is facing extreme devastation after an unusually active monsoon spell this year wreaked havoc across the country, killing over 900 people in rain related incidents out of which 326 are children.
Heavy monsoon rains and floods since mid-June have affected 2.3 million people across Pakistan and at least 95,350 homes have been destroyed, according to the humanitarian agency.
Sindh and Balochistan are among the most “affected provinces in terms of human and infrastructural impact”, however, the full extent of the destruction is still unknown as damage assessment continues.
In order to help out the flood victims, several organizations are working to provide relief in the flood-affected areas.
Here are some ways to help:
- Donate money to relief organizations working on the ground.
- Send essential supplies (food, medicines, blankets) to people in flood-affected communities.
- Help clean up a flood-damaged home nearby.
