Pakistan has faced a terrible disaster for the past few weeks as the continuous monsoon system brings nothing but havoc to the country. At least 1000 individuals, including children, women, and men have passed away, moreover, millions have been displaced after losing their homes.
According to the latest statistics provided by OCHA Humanitarian Advisory Team (HAT) from 13th-26th August, at least 116 districts have been affected with 66 districts officially declared as ‘calamity hit’, since June 1300+ have been injured, and the humanitarian situation is expected to get worse as communities and infrastructures are increasingly becoming unstable with the ongoing rainfall and floods.
An estimated 790,000 livestock has been destroyed, 218,000 houses have been engulfed, and other homes have suffered minimum damage of 500,000, followed by 2mn acres of crops destroyed. This means that 1/5 of Pakistan is in trouble and every 7th Pakistan is in need of dire help.
To help the nation and its people back up on their feet, Pakistani celebrities have urged people to donate. Whether it is a big amount or a small amount, through volunteering or by donating unused items such as blankets and canned foods, this is the time when your country needs your support.
Big or small.. whatever one can do. 🙏🏼♥️ https://t.co/jEJzzJeK30

Whenever I’m giving to charity, like many ppl I am worried about if the money will get to the end recipient. How much of it may go into admin/be pocketed by someone. I’ve been lucky enough to work with some amazing charities that I trust. Here is one of them: 👇🏽 #PakistanFloods pic.twitter.com/RFvMCZJBYq

Earlier this week, the Pakistan government officially declared a ‘national emergency’ in flood-hit areas, calling the unprecedented monsoon rains a “climate-inducted humanitarian crisis of epic proportions”. Moreover, Nowshera has been evacuated over emergency as floods are expected to hit.
We request all Pakistanis whether in the country or abroad to show their support and help build Pakistan again through their donations. Save humanity, save Pakistan.
