Recent flooding in Pakistan has caused millions of people to be homeless, hundreds have lost their lives, and the government has declared a national emergency.

More than 33 million people have been displaced as destructive monsoon rains continue to wreak havoc. Many parts of Pakistan have become inaccessible, with Balochistan and Sindh provinces the worst-affected areas.

On the ground

Tearfund’s partner, the Anglican Diocese of Hyderabad, has two projects in Sindh province. They report that homes, crops and personal possessions have all been washed away. Latrines and fuel-efficient stoves, which the communities built as part of the project activities, were also destroyed.

There are also thousands of people displaced by the loss of housing, and at risk of water-borne diseases and food insecurity.

Emergency response

Tearfund’s partners are actively responding by providing:

  • Provision of food items and mosquito nets for displaced families.
  • Information and support for families to access emergency shelter provisions
  • Advice on how people can protect themselves from further flooding

Last 15 days it was rain non-stop, our houses are filled with water... we have lost a lot. Kindly help us... now I will search [for] some wood to cook some food for my children. God have mercy on us.

Dreams and hopes fade as floods ravage Pakistan

For Lali, the floods that are ravaging her country have brought suffering and fear, as well as the despair of seeing long-held dreams fade.

"Our dreams also washed out with this flooding water. The impact of the flood will be remembered for generations."

Donate Responsibly

During times of humanitarian crises people, especially Australians, feel compelled to give generously. When disasters strike, people often ask Tearfund whether we can accept goods for those who have suffered, and send them to our local partner organisations. While we are always grateful for offers of support and we recognise that people respond from their hearts and out of compassion, sending goods is rarely the best way to support those in need overseas. The website https://donateresponsibly.org/ explains more.
