InterAction Members Respond to Those Affected by the Flooding in Pakistan
WASHINGTON, Aug. 4 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — The worst flood to hit Pakistan in 80 years has left at least one million people in need of emergency assistance. In northwestern Pakistan, the number of deaths currently exceeds 1,400, and over 3 million affected or displaced in need of supplies. Major damage to roads, housing, bridges, general infrastructure, communications and utilities continue to be the main problem hampering relief efforts.
Martin Mogwanja, the UN humanitarian coordinator in Pakistan, declared that two northwestern districts in Pakistan are under a state of emergency and confirmed widespread damages and urgent humanitarian needs.
Unfortunately, the damage of Pakistan’s monsoon floods may worsen. Officials warned that more rain could spread in the coming week, putting more pressure on the country’s already debilitated rescue efforts.
