Severe monsoon flooding in Pakistan has left thousands of people with nowhere to live. The disaster has affected more than 33 million people.

The sheer scale of the flooding is disastrous – people’s homes have sunk in flood water or been swept away. Around 1 million houses have been damaged or destroyed, leaving behind millions in need of urgent shelter.

A ShelterBox response team is in Pakistan working to support thousands of people left with nowhere to live.

The first of our aid will be arriving in Pakistan in the next couple of days. Aid includes tents, water filters and carriers, mosquito nets, and solar lights.

WHERE IS PAKISTAN?


Pakistan is located in South Asia. It borders with India, China, Afghanistan and Iran.

Pakistan has a varied climate and geography, with vast mountain ranges in the north, an area of desert in the west and the Indus River plain in the center.

Communities in Pakistan have suffered from severe flooding many times in the past. Most notably, the 2011 floods happened as people were still trying to recover from the 2010 monsoon floods that affected 18 million people.

SHELTERBOX RESPONSE


We are focusing our attention on the most affected areas of Sindh, Punjab, and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP).

ShelterBox has a huge amount of experience supporting communities affected by flooding. We have responded to flooding at least 75 times since 2000, providing emergency aid and support to tens of thousands of families around the globe.

In fact, our largest response to flooding was in Pakistan in 2010, so we have experience working in-country.

Please donate now. Your support today will provide lifesaving aid for families affected by flooding in Pakistan.

Any additional money raised will help ShelterBox provide emergency shelter to families affected by disaster around the world.
