Emergency appeal for Pakistan
Help us respond to Caritas Pakistan’s cry for help.
“This water surge has caused extensive damage. One hundred families live here…four feet of water has reached their homes. In this hour of calamity, please help us” – Fr. Kashif Jamil of Caritas in the Khushab district.
Monsoon rains in summer 2020 have wreaked havoc in Pakistan. The torrential rains and resulting flooding and landslides in the country have killed almost 200 people, damaged over 2000 houses and left hundreds of thousands of other households battling flood waters mixed with sewage.
Caritas volunteers have been out in boats to save children, adults and livestock from rising floodwaters and have been distributing tarpaulins to give some temporary respite to flood-battered families.
In order to give longer-term support to communities, Caritas has launched a four-month programme to help 5,100 flood-affected households by providing them with food packages, hygiene kits and shelter in Punjab, Sindh and Balochistan. We will also provide medical services and work opportunities to almost 2000 households.
Please help us help the people of Pakistan get through this difficult moment in their lives.
