Update: Pakistan floods

By Mercedes Ward | Project Leader

Dear Pakistan Project Supporters,

Our hearts are with the people of Pakistan. With one-third of the country flooded, we hope that you and your loved ones are safe. Many of you are probably anxious to hear an update about the girls in the program you support.  

Bedari, our partner organization in Pakistan, has informed us that flooding has not occurred in the areas where the girls live. The girls and their villages are safe—at least for now. We know that further monsoon rains are in the forecast, and the situation could change rapidly. Moreover, the social and economic impacts of a disaster of this scale are tremendous—and they will ripple across the entire country (and world) for a long time to come. 

We are committed to working with Bedari to continue to support girls’ access to education amid this crisis. We hope you will stay committed as well. 

We also know that such a massive disaster requires immediate responsiveness of the global community. GlobalGiving has launched a special campaign to raise funds for flood relief (click here to donate to GlobalGiving’s Pakistan Flood Relief Fund). We are grateful to be part of a nonprofit and donor community that cares. It is through our collective actions that we can co-create a better world for all. 

With love and in solidarity,

The Girls Ed Team

(Mercedes, Kate, Shelly, Lauren, and Loni)
