					      Flood in Pakistan 2010

  At least 20 million people far more than
   previously thought have been made
homeless as a result of devastating floods in
                   Pakistan




                                                2
Pakistan floods leave 20 million
           homeless

Heavy monsoon rains last month in Pakistan started the
havoc and devastation, as rivers overflowed their banks
in several provinces and torrential rainfall swept away
peoples’ homes, infrastructure, crops, and livestock. The
floods have killed at least 1,600 people, forced about two
million from their homes and disrupted the lives of 14
million people. The United Nations appealed on
Wednesday for $459 million in emergency aid for flood-
ravaged Pakistan. These are the worst floods in Pakistan
for more than 80 years
Pakistani villagers await aid Friday at their homes left in rubble by
floods in Aza Kheil near Peshawar. International aid for Pakistani flood
victims is coming in slowly compared to other recent disasters despite the
massive number of people affected and the potential for dire economic
consequences in a country key to Western hopes in the fight against
Islamist extremists

               The Disaster
 We’re all aware of the devastation caused by
  flash floods in Punjab, KP, Baluchistan and even
  Sind.
 During the recent spell of torrential rains, the
  losses of human life as well as monetary losses
  are enormous.
 Entire villages have been either swept away or
  left uninhabitable in the wake of this catastrophe.
  As a result, a large number of people have been
  displaced and forced to move to temporary
  encampments or are left without shelter and
  support.
          Major Bottlenecks
 Government help and international aid takes
  time as always seen in the past.
 Unlike other disasters we do not have freedom
  of movement as all of the affected area is
  submerged and road links are broken
 Outbreak of disease as is usual in cases of
  flooding
 Those who could not or did not leave their
  homes in time are stranded there and only
  accessible by helicopters or boats – which are
  not many to start with.
                  Who we Are?
   To appease this situation and more so to show solidarity
    and support with the affected, our old IDPs relief team
    (Sawera Foundation) as well as volunteers are planning
    to engage in an immediate activity of providing relief in
    terms of basic necessities to the ones affected and
    displaced, probably within or by the end of this week. We
    have experience of providing relief in the past most
    notably in the unfortunate events of 2005 earthquake
    and the 2009 mass movement of IDPs.

           How can you help?
   Come along and be a part of it, I believe this is
    the best thing anyone of us can do at junctures
    like these. Putting a face to the ’help’ is the best
    way to show good will and gives a very strong
    perception that someone out there cares. After
    this catastrophe is over, let us not leave our
    brothers and sisters with the memory that no
    one bothered coming out to help them like they
    possibly would have in times of someone else’s
    need.
 Donate.   Donate in terms of money so we
  can buy the items of utmost need. It will be
  more convenient in terms of procurement
  and transport if we buy the supplies
  ourselves.
 - Spread the word, ask people to engage.
  If not with us, any of us can do it
  individually or in their own groups. We
  don’t need to go through an NGO or a
  certain particular group to help
  out. Putting a face to the help is what
  matters.
    "Help the Helpless" and URGE your URGENT ACTION AND
       SUPPORT to HELP the HELPLESS victims of floods

   Please read the APPEAL and support young team of Kashmir to HELP the
    Innocent Victims of Floods in Pakistan by Donating or spreading the

    Appeal to “HELP the Flood Victims of Pakistan”
    Pakistan struggles with its worst floods in 80 years. The floods have
    claimed at least 1,600 lives, displaced more than 8 million people,
    and affected as many as 14 million, as waters spread from the
    country’s militancy-affected northwest through the bread-basket of
    Punjab. As far as Sindh, home to Karachi, the country’s financial hub,
    river banks are bursting.
