International aid is slow to reach survivors of the floods in Pakistan. But you can make an IMMEDIATE impact: MADRE has allies on the ground NOW providing vital supplies and food.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
After the recent devastating flooding in Pakistan, at least 8 million people are in need of immediate care and 4.6 million have been left homeless. Yet aid has been tragically slow in reaching people in need: many are hard to access, and still others remain uncounted. The risk of waterborne diseases increases daily, and the loss or contamination of millions of acres of crops and hundreds of thousands of livestock leaves already-vulnerable flood survivors at critical risk in the long term too.
How will this project solve this problem?
Our friends, Shirkat Gah, are already on the ground distributing aid. Since they are based in the region, they will be able to provide for flood survivors in the immediate and in the long-term.
Potential Long Term Impact
Because it is strengthening community organizations, this response is building local capacities to respond to future disasters.
