Sea-like flood water ravaged most parts of Pakistan during the last two months making millions homeless and thousands losing their lives with huge losses to infrastructure and economy. One of the key reasons behind the floods is the changing climate with 7000 glaciers melting in result rising the water levels.

Owing to the immediate needs and severe situation, Islamic Relief was on-ground on 3rd August, 2022 during the first 72 hours starting off from Balochistan and then moving on to Khyber Pakhtunkhwa followed by Sindh.

Our strategic presence across Pakistan helped us to reach the affected population in time. During early response, tents, cash grants and food boxes were provided to meet the urgent needs. Islamic Relief also mobilized the mainstream media of the country to focus more on the deteriorating situation which helped in addressing the needs and knowing the actual situation.

Delegation from different partner offices including Canada, UK alongside CEO IRW also visited the affected areas accompanied by high profile dignitaries including British High Commissioner in Pakistan and Members of Parliament from the UK and Canada which ultimately helped in raising awareness around the scale of disaster and needs.

Islamic Relief Pakistan with the help of partners and institutional donors is implementing emergency response in Sindh, Balochistan and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. More than 250,000 people have been reached till now with hygiene kits, food, kitchen items, clean water and tents. Currently, construction of latrines and rehabilitation of water supply schemes has already started in worst affected parts of Sindh province in wake of the risk of disease outbreak.

We aim to reach half a million through our efforts in the coming months eyeing long term recovery and rebuilding phase. Islamic Relief Pakistan marking its 30th year in the country, is committed to serve the resilient people with dignity and compassion during these testing times.
