Challenge

To date, almost 20 million people have been temporarily and permanently displaced due to the severe flooding in Pakistan, and many more are threatened as the water continues to rise. Although damage assessments are ongoing, approximately 90,000 homes have been destroyed and another 50,000 have been damaged throughout the area. Extreme damage to agricultural land has wiped out seasonal crops on a devastating scale in one of the most productive areas of the country.

Solution

In Pakistan we are focusing our efforts on preparing for reconstruction, for example, repairing roads and irrigation systems, and applying our expertise at agriculture.

Long-Term Impact

In every disaster we respond to, CHF works not only to provide immediate relief to survivors of disaster, but assist them in moving forward as they rebuild their economic and social foundations.
