Six months after Pakistan floods
27 January 2011
More than 20 million people were affected by the floods that devastated Pakistan six months ago. The water covered roughly a fifth of the country and washed away or damaged two million homes.
Caritas network has allocated more than $20 million to help people rebuild their homes and lives.
Caritas has been helping flood victims from the first day of the disaster and is now carrying out extensive relief and reconstruction programmes. Altogether, the Caritas network has allocated more than $20 million to help people rebuild their homes and lives.
“The floods were just so extensive. We are doing all we can and cooperating with many other NGOs working here, but a lot more help is still needed”, urged Bishop Coutts, President of Caritas Pakistan.
