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

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

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
