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.
But this monsoon season is different. Instead of the usual river flooding, monstrous rains have now also caused urban flooding, flash floods, and severe inundations due to glacial lake outbursts. Several regions across the country have been hit with three to six times more rainfall than usual.
The most affected have been the regions of Balochistan, Sindh, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, and Punjab where almost 700,000 homes, nearly 800,000 livestock 3,000 km of the roadway and close to 150 bridges have been damaged or destroyed.
Now, internet outages have been reported making travel and communication nearly impossible for those displaced and in need of assistance. The devastation is beyond catastrophic, with tens of millions of vulnerable people homeless, uprooted from their communities, and facing a forecast of more rain and flooding as dams and waterways rapidly fill.
Across these flood-hit regions of Pakistan, survivors have fled to higher ground, urgently needing medical aid, food, clean water, and adequate shelter. With roads and bridges lost, current conditions remain quite dangerous for survivors, and even more rain, more flooding, and a potential ninth monsoon cycle are expected.
Balochistan, with its perilous economic situation and lack of disaster mitigation measures, tragically has been the hardest hit, and nearly the entire area has been declared a calamity. This province, Pakistan’s largest, relies heavily on humanitarian assistance to ensure the people here can meet their basic needs for food and shelter, and become resilient against disease.
To survive this life-threatening flooding, Pakistan urgently needs assistance. Human Appeal is responding to the current emergency situation with thousands of hot meals for families in all flood-affected areas, including Balochistan, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Punjab and Sindh.
We are also supporting efforts to strengthen public health measures and stop the spread of diseases, including water-borne illnesses like cholera. Human Appeal is providing hundreds of family hygiene kits and additional household items like tarps, jerry cans, and buckets.
