€50 – Provides a hot, nutritious meal to 20 flood-affected people daily.
€40 – Supplies a family with essential hygiene and household items to protect against disease, including anti-bacterial handwashing soap, toothbrushes, toothpaste, nail cutters, hair combs, towels, tarpaulin sheets, plastic mats, buckets and water bottles.
In a typical year, the monsoon season brings approximately 4 cycles of heavy downpours and is always a time fraught with peril for Pakistan. Longstanding poverty, and the aftermath of the previous flooding, have left the people critically vulnerable to flood disasters and endangered their safety.
It could be up to months before flood waters recede. Flood-affected families continue to endure a painfully long wait to begin rebuilding their lives. A wait that increases the threat of illness and water-borne disease by the day.
Long-term help through Sadaqah Jariyah
After flood waters recede, recovery begins with home construction, infrastructure projects, and long-term care for orphans. Help flood-affected survivors build their future and help establish an honorable legacy with these Sadaqah Jariyah projects that provide long-term aid:
€2,750 / €230 per month – Saves a family from homelessness by building a secure one-room brick home complete with a kitchen and washroom that will serve as a stable address for receiving additional recovery support and assistance. Participating sadaqa jariyah donor receives a plaque and feedback report upon completion.
Flood-affected regions across 7 provinces in Pakistan have suffered monumental losses: more than one million homes, hundreds of thousands of livestock, kilometers of roadway, and hundreds of bridges. The worst affected has been Sindh, followed by Balochistan.
An extraordinary monsoon season caused urban flooding, flash floods, and glacial lake outburst to inundate Pakistan with four to six times more rainfall than usual. One-third of the country remains underwater. Tens of millions of vulnerable people are surviving the devastation and loss in their communities while facing injury, disease, hunger, homelessness, and psychological distress.
Our embankment saved a community from floodwater
With timely and innovative help, flood-ravaged communities can thrive again. As an official partner of Pakistan’s recovery, we are leveraging the success and lessons learned from our ambitious 2010 embankment project that built a flood-resistant village.
Back in 2010 in Pakistan, one of the worst-affected districts was Rahim Yar Khan, where 500,000 people, many already living close to the poverty line, were impacted--- not a single household remained. Our embankment project there kept back the Chenab River, saving lives, homes, and livelihoods in Basti Emaan Village.
Built 6 feet above the ground and 10 feet above river level, a 5km-long mud embankment held strong, preventing floodwater from reaching homes, fields, and crops. With the help of two bulldozers and 40 trucks, 50 skilled and over 100 unskilled volunteers worked tirelessly for 15 days to rebuild the embankment, futureproofing some 80 villages and over 3,000 vulnerable families from the devastating effects of flooding.
In subsequent years, this rebuilt embankment has withstood more than a decade of major floods (in 2011, 2012, 2013, 2015, and the recent catastrophic floods of 2022), protecting lives, homes, and livelihoods. We are following up on the out-sized success of that project with our most ambitious village project yet: we have committed to building two new villages. With your support, you can be a part of the lasting change as you help to establish a flood-resistant future for families who have survived this year’s unprecedented floods.
Now, as we stand side-by-side with Pakistan in its complex transition from flood response to recovery, there is much that we can do together from providing immediate aid to developing interim solutions to crafting long-term assistance.
With your generous support, we have already reached 70,000 flood-affected survivors in the hardest-hit areas in Pakistan to help relieve their immediate needs. You can be a part of our efforts as we expand vital assistance to reach even more families with even more support:
• Daily hot meals to feed hungry families and provide them with clean water
• Food parcels to feed a family for two weeks
• Household items to provide essential comfort
• Hygiene kits to protect against illness and disease
• Dignity kits to ensure women and girls can safely manage their menstrual health
• Water filters and water filtration systems so that individuals and entire communities can safely and easily access clean drinking water and prevent disease
• Emergency mobile health clinic to provide medical services to flood survivors
• Brick home construction to provide families with stable and secure shelter where they can receive additional recovery support
As an official response and recovery partner in Pakistan, we have been among the first on the ground and we remain at the forefront of projects and programming there. We proudly stand behind our relief efforts that no other charity is providing, like our emergency mobile health clinic---the only charity offering health services in remote areas where malaria, dengue fever, and water-borne diseases are a top health concern. When you donate to our Pakistan Floods Appeal, you make it possible for survivors to receive complete care and assistance.
Right now, we are raising £10 million from both private and corporate donors to reach as many vulnerable people as possible. You can be a part of this massive endeavor with any donation you can comfortably make.
Why donate through Human Appeal?
We’ve been changing lives in Pakistan for 16 years. Our work there focuses not just on emergency response but also efforts to help communities achieve long-term success and resiliency through new skills, livelihoods, and vital infrastructure.
