Pakistan Floods

    Ummah Welfare Trust is responding to the heavy monsoon rains which have flooded large parts of Pakistan for the second year in succession.

    Hundreds of people have already died with the number expected to rise. About 900 villages have been submerged and hundreds of thousands of homes have been completely destroyed. Approximately seven million people are affected.

    The new flooding compounds the suffering caused by massive flooding last year as a result of which more than 800,000 families remain without permanent shelter and more than a million people in need of food assistance.

    Thousands of acres of standing crops have been destroyed. Poultry farms, fish farms and grazing areas have also been submerged. For a people so dependent on agriculture, the effects of this flooding have been devastating. Many were already in the lap of poverty as failed rains before August had dried up the land.

    With your support, Ummah Welfare Trust has been working to alleviate the suffering since the first day of the crisis. Tent and medical camps have been set up in two of the worst affected areas, Badin and Mirpurkhas, providing the basic necessities to thousands of families.
