Pakistan Floods 2022: an unprecedented natural disaster. Over 30 million people affected. Everything is gone; no shelter, no food, no crops. Outbreak of disease threatens not only health of flood affectees but also livelihoods. Income shocks from damage to crops and cattle, as well as health emergencies, can push entire households into starvation. Fatima Memorial Hospital in collaboration with Nur Foundation is providing relief in the areas of South Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
Pakistan a country of over 220 M population facing a natural disaster of unprecedented and unimaginable scale. Over 30 million families have been displaced, 949,853 houses destroyed, 2 million acres of crops impacted, 719,558 livestock destroyed, and the devastation continues. Stagnant water is giving rise to vector borne and gastro intestinal diseases. Advent of winter will start leading to respiratory tract diseases. Immediate needs: food, clothing, medical relief, hygiene kits and tents.
We intend to provide comprehensive relief and rehabilitation services based on 17 years of experience in disaster management. Our disaster framework is based on addressing immediate, medium term and long term community need. We intend to focus in two geographic areas.
This relief and rehabilitation campaign will facilitate sustainable livelihood approach for those affected by floods. It is further expected to reduce the income shocks that have been caused by displacement and disease. Previous experience of relief and rehabilitation will be leveraged by NUR Foundation. The long-term impact will further be assessed as needs evolve based on short term and mid term intervention.
