Catastrophic Floods in Pakistan
Catastrophic floods in Pakistan have left more than 1,300 people dead and 14 million affected as waters wash away people's homes, crops and livelihoods. We know that this disaster will hit the poorest of the poor the hardest. The Hunger Project (THP) stands in solidarity with the people of Pakistan and the many agencies that are working to provide relief.
While THP does work to support disaster preparedness in the areas where we work, we are not a disaster response organization and we do not have programs in Pakistan. To support such work, we encourage you to give directly to organizations working to alleviate this situation. The coalition InterAction, of which we are a member, has put together a list of organizations working in such a capacity. For UK-based organizations, visit the Disasters Emergency Committee website.
While crisis support is unquestionably needed at this critical time, the situation in Pakistan is yet another unfortunate example of how critical it is to invest in the capacity and resilience of people living in poverty throughout the world so they can better cope when emergencies do arise.
