Pakistan is currently experiencing extremely heavy rainfall, resulting in catastrophic flash flooding across the country.
According to the most recent reports, 419 people have tragically lost their lives, including 77 children, while approximately 500 people have been injured.
Over 34,000 homes have perished
In the hardest hit areas of Balochistan, Sindh, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, and Punjab, over 34,000 homes and tens of thousands of livestock have perished. In Balochistan alone, over 150,000 people are in urgent need of humanitarian assistance, and across all regions, thousands of vulnerable people are facing internal displacement.
The crisis is expected to worsen as heavier downpour is on its way. Reports from authorities have confirmed that 977km of road infrastructure and 61 bridges have been destroyed, which poses an even more severe threat to the lives of thousands of people.
Without access to urgent medical aid, food, clean water, and adequate shelter, those who have fled to higher ground will be at even more risk.
