In 2022, it rained 500% more than in the last 30 years and piled miseries across Pakistan. These massive rains have hit areas with the highest poverty rates in the country, washing away entire homes, roads, and bridges, affecting 33 million people. Al-Mustafa rescued the victims trapped in the water & supported 1.7 Million people with tents, food, ration, safe water, medical aid, etc. Your donation will help us to rehabilitate thousands of families who have lost everything to the floods.
Rising temperatures due to climate change have molten down glaciers resulting in one of the greatest floods in the history of mankind. With 1/3rd of the land covered with floods, this disaster has afflicted more than 33 million people. These floods displaced millions of families and have left thousands dead, injured and sick. Damaged houses, livestock, crops, roads and bridges have shattered the local and national economies.
Al-Mustafa's Disaster Relief Teams have rescued thousands of people entrapped in the water through helicopters and boats. Our teams have delivered cooked food, baby food, ration, medical aid (half a million beneficiaries), tents, water filtration devices, mosquito nets/repellants, bedding etc., to 1.7 million beneficiaries in the first phase of relief. In rehabilitation, we have built 200 houses for 200 afflicted families so far and plan to rebuild more houses, schools and healthcare facilities.
These deadly rains have also economically destroyed the affected areas and populations, killed livestock, and crippled transportation and commerce by flushing roads and destroying bridges. Recovery will be a long road for families who have lost everything. Al-Mustafa also plans to rehabilitate the victims by supporting them economically, building their homes, and repairing/reconstructing destroyed local infrastructure, including schools, healthcare centres etc.
