Over 1,700 people have died, and over 30 million people have been affected as a result of extreme flooding which has destroyed homes, crops, livelihoods and key infrastructure in Pakistan.
“We have already deployed staff to the affected regions, and our teams are working around the clock to support the communities facing this crisis,” says Relief International Chief Executive Officer, Ann Koontz.
RI is on the ground in three regions of the country providing much needed support to those affected.
> We have provided over 1500 families with much needed food and drinking water in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province.
> We are providing emergency hygiene kits and health training sessions so those affected can avoid water born illnesses and hazards.
> We are also providing mobile medical services, and have conducted hundreds of psycho-social support sessions for the men, women, and children who have been affected by the traumatic events of the last three weeks.
> We are working with local schools and the local government in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province to establish and equip Safe Learning Centers (SLC) in the short term, and clean and repair existing schools in the long term, so that children in the area can return to their educations.
