CARE Activates Clinics and Responds in Pakistan



CARE will reach 50,000 people with both short-term immediate relief and long-term livelihood recovery, focusing on shelter, health, and safe water and sanitation for the most marginalized people.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Heavy rains have triggered some of the most severe and widespread flooding in Pakistan’s 63-year history. Across the nation, hundreds of thousands of homes and crucial infrastructure have been washed away, with the heaviest damage in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KPK), Baluchistan and Punjab provinces. Thousands have died, and 20 million children, women and men have been affected – more than the 2005 Asia tsunami and 2010 Haiti earthquake combined.

How will this project solve this problem?

CARE has developed an initial plan to reach about 50,000 people with both short-term immediate relief and long-term livelihood recovery. We are activating health clinics, and distributing tents, shawls, mosquito nets, and hygiene kits for families.

Potential Long Term Impact

CARE plans to help farming communities rehabilitate their crops and better prepare for future emergencies, by providing cash-for-work programs and instruction on improved farming technologies.
