Challenge

Floods caused by a week of heavy rain have killed more than 1,600 people and left more than 3 million people homeless in Pakistan's northwest. Rescuers are battling to distribute relief to tens of thousands of trapped people. The Pakistani authorities believe these to be the worst floods to have hit the country in the past 80 years. ActionAid urgently needs donations for both our immediate, lifesaving response, and our longer term rebuilding project.

Solution

ActionAid Pakistan is now delivering emergency food, water and other supplies to affected families in 11 districts in Pakistan. We have also provided medicines for government dispensaries and now initiating medical camps with male and female doctors.

Long-Term Impact

In the first phase of response, we are expecting to deliver aid to more than 3,500 households (over 23,000 people) in these districts in next three months.
