2022 Disaster Relief - Pakistan Floods Fund

About

Since mid-June, Pakistan has been inundated with record levels of rainfall and flooding, affecting over 33 million people, and causing what Pakistan's Minister of Climate Change is calling the worst humanitarian disaster of this decade. Over 1500 people have died from severe rain and flooding across the country. According to the UN, over 660,000 people have been displaced to relief camps across the country. Pakistan's National Disaster Management Agency states that more than 1.8M homes, 12,700 kilometers of road, and 390 bridges have been destroyed. Cisco Foundation has launched a $500K Pakistan Floods disaster relief campaign to support the efforts of Helping Hand for Relief & Development, Hidaya Foundation, International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, International Medical Corps, Islamic Relief Canada, Islamic Relief USA, Mercy Corps, Save the Children, and World Central Kitchen. Donations will be matched up to $10,000 per employee. Campaign donations will not be counted toward employees' annual $25,000 match limit.

Mercy Corps U.S. has been working in Pakistan since 1986. They are targeting their response to the most affected areas of Balochistan province in the Southwest of the country; delivering food and other essential supplies, including water, sanitation, and hygiene kits. In addition to meeting the most urgent needs of families, they are working to prevent the outbreak of communicable diseases with hygiene and health support. They are prioritizing the most vulnerable families, including Afghan refugees, households displaced because of damage to their homes, and households headed by women or with disabled family members.

Helping Hand For Relief & Development Inc

Helping Hand For Relief & Development is distributing food packages, “dignity” packages (Tarps, Mosquito Nets, Water Containers, Kitchen Sets); shelter kits (Bamboo, Roofing Materials, Doors, Windows, Tarps); and providing mobile medical services for those affected and displaced by the floods.

Islamic Relief USA

The Islamic Relief global family is working together to help survivors of the disaster. Islamic Relief Pakistan is on the ground right now distributing essential relief items including food, emergency shelter, cash assistance, and more; Islamic Relief USA and Canada are raising funds and providing support.

Save the Children

Save the Children is working with a community-based partner in Baluchistan to distribute essential relief items such as tents, household/hygiene kits and food to those impacted. Save the Children is working with government and community partners to assess needs across other impacted areas (Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Sindh) to provide them with similar emergency supplies. Save the Children operates Temporary Learning Centers in Baluchistan, which will be leveraged to continue providing children with safe spaces to learn and play as well as receive psychosocial support.

International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies

International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies has released $500K from their emergency funds to assist close to 31K affected people in the flood-hit regions of Pakistan. They have also launched an emergency appeal to further support the priority humanitarian response including a focus on the response capacity and readiness of the Pakistan Red Crescent Society (PRCS) and the affected communities they serve. PRCS is providing relief in 23 of the most affected districts and has deployed more than 500 staff and volunteers.

International Medical Corps

International Medical Corps has had a longstanding presence in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) province, and has already provided local health officials with enough medicines and medical supplies to care for around 4,000 patients for more than one month. They will be providing additional medicines and medical supplies, and plan to deploy mobile medical teams to deliver essential health services directly to flood-affected communities in both KP and Sindh provinces. They are also in the process of conducting additional assessments to better understand and address growing mental health and psychosocial support (MHPSS) and WASH needs.

Hidaya Foundation

Hidaya Foundation has been implementing projects in Sindh, one of the most badly impacted provinces, for over 23 years. They are working with their partner, Hidaya Trust, to deliver food, medicine, temporary shelter, emergency supplies and more to the families affected by floods in Pakistan. They will also be helping with rebuilding projects after waters recede.
