The recent floods have claimed many lives and injured thousands. They have also caused the loss of tens of hundreds of acres of farmland and crops, in addition to the deaths of a significant number of animals. Families have lost their means of subsistence and are now wholly reliant on aid from charitable organizations. Flood victims are in dire need of safe food, uncontaminated water, and healthcare aid right now. According to UNICEF, more than 3 million children are in need of healthcare services in Pakistan’s flood-affected areas. Charitable organizations are urging donors to increase their contributions toward flood relief in Pakistan.
The devastation caused by the floods is increasing both in terms of the affected area and the severity of the suffering experienced by the flood victims. In this time of critical need, we ask that you lend your kind help to the devastated individuals and towns as they fight to reconstruct their lives and maintain their means of subsistence. The following is a list of non-governmental organizations (NGOs) that need your contributions to provide flood relief in Pakistan.
Transparent Hands is the most prominent online platform for crowdfunding in Pakistan’s healthcare sector. The organization arranges free medical camps and preventive healthcare sessions for the economically disadvantaged population in Pakistan. Transparent Hands provides a comprehensive spectrum of free health services, ranging from diagnostic tests like Hepatitis B & C Screenings to Open-Heart Surgeries. Its mission is to alleviate the pain and suffering of the millions of people in Pakistan who are unable to access adequate surgical and medical care due to a shortage of healthcare facilities. People who have been uprooted by the recent floods are looking for somewhere safe to stay, food to eat, and medical attention. Transparent Hands is currently arranging flood relief camps in KPK, Sindh, and South Punjab where the affectees are receiving free medical care and food packs. The prevalence of diseases rises in flood-affected communities due to the lack of access to clean water and sanitation. The organization aims to help 100,000 flood victims.
