According to the UN’s Office for Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), heavy monsoon rainfall and floods have affected some 2.3 million people in Pakistan since mid-June, destroying at least 95,350 houses and damaging a further 224,100.

HOW CAN YOU HELP?
Most immediately there is a need to provide food relief. Our team is on the ground in Dadu village, located in Interior Sindh and is surveying the area. Other non profits have already established tents and temporary living shelters until the water recedes. There is a need to provide at least 1000 food relief packages (at $15 each) containing:

Cooking Oil (1 LTR)
Flour (10 KG)
Rice (3KG)
Sugar (1KG)
Soaps
Spices
Milk Pack (1 LTR)
Salt
Matchsticks
Lentils (2KG)
Tea

WHAT ABOUT LONG TERM?
Once the water recedes there will be a need for rebuilding housing. At this point, many relief agencies will have left the area and villagers will need our support. We will be working with our on ground team, Idara Al Khair to start rebuilding and working on provisions of livestock, food, seeds and farming opportunities that was once their livelihood.

Please help us meet our goal of $50,000 to help rebuild communities in Dadu. We will continue to also survey areas in KPK and Tharparkar and will update the campaign in real time.
