Victims of Pakistan’s flood continue to live in public buildings and camps as winter approaches

December 28th, 2010 by dawn Leave a reply »

In July 2010, Pakistan experienced the worst flood in 80 years (Source). The number of people affected exceeded the combined total of individuals affected by the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami, the 2005 Kashmir earthquake, and the 2010 Haiti earthquake.

Four months after floodwaters swept through the country, many millions still rely on food aid, villages lacking clean water are still being discovered, and a million people continue to live in public buildings and camps as winter approaches.

“Although most people have returned to their home areas, many have returned to near total destruction “with no homes, no crops, no food and no cash,” Daniel Toole, UNICEF Regional Director for South Asia, said.

“In the north, snow has fallen and we are delivering winter clothes and supplies to help families prepare for a harsh winter, while in the south very slow receding waters have meant over a million lives are still on hold. The coming cold months will sharply increase the numbers of respiratory infections and malnutrition, two of the biggest killers of Pakistani children,” Toole added.

A polio outbreak has spread quickly with 126 cases this year compared to 89 in 2009, a major cause for concern because Pakistan had made significant progress towards eradicating polio.  (Source)

Please consider supporting the flood victims in Pakistan during this holiday season.

Philanthropedia has made this easier for you by recommending a group of top nonprofits after interviewing three experts in Pakistan. The experts recommended the following nonprofits:

Bilquis Edhi Relief Foundation is one of the most renowned humanitarian nonprofits in Pakistan. It does a lot of great work including running shelter homes for orphans and operating the largest ambulance service in Pakistan.

The Citizens Foundation is one of Pakistan’s leading organizations in the field of formal education. As of 2010, TCF had established 660 purpose-built school units nationwide with an enrollment of 92,000 students.

The Imran Khan Foundation is another large nonprofit that has philanthropic projects in education, social ,and health care sectors, and provides relief to the needy especially in the time of natural disasters.

The Layton Rahmatulla Benevolent Trust is a leading nonprofit committed to creating a better Pakistan by preventing the suffering caused by blindness and other eye elements. They were one of the first in the field to serve the flood victims and provide them with health care facilities along with free medication and water purification tablets.
