The biggest disaster in the history of Pakistan
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
Monsoons have flooded much area of Pakistan displacing thousands of families and leaving masses homeless, but no major relief efforts have yet begun to reach the hardest hit regions. Funds are needed to get supplies and volunteers to where they are most needed. Donations will pay for medicines, vaccinations, emergency equipment, ambulance rental, fuel, food, water and logistics to get these supplies through the difficult terrain into Pakistan's flood-affected areas.
How will this project solve this problem?
We are in relief camps close to the hardest hit flood areas. We observed it directly the needs there are indescribable. We are committed to providing the appropriate relief services to the flood victims. But it is beyond our capacity to deal it by our own. Donations will allow us to purchase and create a supply line from the larger cities to deliver donations of medical supplies, food, water, and medical providers, and volunteers.
The magnitude of the displacement is so large we are now hearing figures of over 20 million people having been affected. So it's a very, very difficult task. It's a very challenging one.
