In Pakistan, unprecedented rains and floods have wreaked havoc across the country. The recent floods have affected 33 million people all across the country. Hundreds of people, including women and children, have lost their lives, homes, and livelihoods. The floods have also affected agricultural land, livestock, and food supplies all across Pakistan. Many civil society organizations, humanitarian groups, and nonprofits like Transparent Hands are assisting with rescue and relief operations for flood victims.
The flood survivors are in urgent need of shelter, food, fuel, clean water, hygiene products, and medical care. Millions of flood affectees need your donations to recover.
The extent of devastation caused by the floods
Compared to the average rainfall during the previous years, some parts of Pakistan received five times more rain in 2022. This combined with the water from melting glaciers resulted in unprecedented floods all across Pakistan. The following figures can help you understand the extent of the devastation these floods caused:
- Over 1500 people have lost their lives
- More than 300,000 houses have been damaged
- The floods have affected over 33 million people
- Around a third of the country has been inundated
In addition, millions of families have been displaced. Many have lost their livelihoods because the floods washed away their crops. Humanitarian assistance is now the only lifeline for millions of flood victims.
How to Help Flood-Affected Families in Pakistan
This year’s floods have left a huge number of families without food, medical, clean drinking water, blankets, clothing, and shelter. Thousands of starving children await flood relief supplies and many pregnant women don’t have access to healthcare facilities. Consider donating to a reputable non-profit that’s providing these essentials to flood victims in Pakistan.
How to Find Reputable Charitable Organizations to Help Flood Victims
A number of charitable organizations are currently raising funds to provide flood relief supplies to affectees. However, it’s important to do some research before donating to a charitable organization. After all, some nonprofits can make your donations more impactful. Some of the factors you should keep in mind while selecting an organization include transparency, expertise, resources, modes of payment, and reporting. Another factor to consider is the accreditation by the Pakistan Centre for Philanthropy (PCP).
