National Emergency Amids Flooding in Pakistan 2022: More than 33 million people have been displaced as destructive monsoon rains continue to wreak havoc. As a result of the floods, hundreds of people lost their lives or are wounded. As of August 2022, over 300,000 flood victims are still living in makeshift shelters. These floods are the worst to hit Pakistan since the devastating floods of 2010. Since the middle of June, 30 million people in Pakistan have been impacted by heavy monsoon rains and floods, which have destroyed over 218,000 homes and damaged around two million more.
In terms of casualties and damage to infrastructure, the provinces of Sindh and Balochistan have taken the worst hits. Over 3,600 kilometers of roads and 145 bridges have been damaged or destroyed, preventing travel across flood-affected regions and killing millions of cattle, most of which died in the province of Balochistan. More than 17,560 educational facilities suffered some kind of destruction. The National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA), the Pakistani Army, and the Provincial Disaster Management Authority are all trying to help those impacted, but the increasing number of homeless and displaced families means that there is a “dire” need for shelter and assistance. Sindh, which has been severely affected by the floods, has called for 1 million tents, while Balochistan, a region in the northwest that has been largely cut off from power, gas, and the internet, has asked for 100,000 tents.
Always prepared to provide a hand, our employees in Sindh and Balochistan are providing food, shelter, and medical care to those affected by the recent flooding. To further reduce mortality rates and maximize rescue efforts, we have been able to provide the most deserving individuals with food, rations, and shelter. Thousands upon thousands of people in northern and southern Pakistan are in immediate danger due to the heavy rainfall and subsequent floods. Numerous deaths have been reported in the provinces of Sindh, KPK, Balochistan, and Punjab as a result of the recent rainstorms. Many precious items, animals, and buildings have been lost in the devastation they caused. Donations will be used to offer emergency aid such as food, shelter, water, and medication to survivors, and will also be used to help locals recover and rebuild in the long run. It rained heavily in Southern Punjab and Balochistan, leading to flash floods that killed several people.
