Food Distribution - Reach 57,683 households
Beginning on July 30, merely 3 days after the flooding had begun, Relief International’s in-country team of 300 staff were in affected communities providing desperately needed aid to flood affected families of Pakistan. Over 20 million people have been affected since the onset of the floods and more than 1.8 million houses have been destroyed. This represents a humanitarian crisis of epic proportions. As the impact of this disaster grows and gaps in aid continue, we have expanded our team from 300 to over 400 staff and volunteers are working around the clock to reach as many in need as humanly possible. Relief International has reached more than 100,000 affected families with food, clean water, hygiene kits, medical care and safe spaces for women and children. Thanks to donors’ support:
Health: We are treating 600 patients per day at our 3 medical clinics in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KPK) and Baluchistan. Food To-date: We have provided one-month supply of food to 57, 683 families in KPK, Baluchistan and Punjab.
Children’s Services: To date, 14 Women’s and Children’s Emergency Care Centers provide safe structured environments for special services including education and emotional support. Every day hundreds of children utilize these centers to find a minimum of normalcy in the midst of disaster and destruction.
Safe Water: A 6-month water and sanitation program has launched to prevent the spread of water-borne diseases: providing clean water, hygiene kits, hygiene education and shelter to families in Baluchistan and Punjab.
Relief International (RI) aims to reach another 300,000. Funding shortfalls continue to limit the ability of humanitarian agencies to provide life-saving assistance in key sectors. RI estimates that only 25% of the population in need is actually receiving any form of aid.
