Helping those in need
On July 29, unusually strong monsoon rains in Pakistan caused massive flooding across the region, which led to the death of approximately 1,600 people. Severe rains have continued to wash away homes and businesses leaving thousands without basic necessities or their livelihoods.
It is estimated that about 13.8 million people are affected with nearly half of those needing some type of humanitarian aid to survive.
