More than 1,000 people, including 348 children, have lost their lives and a further 1,500 have been injured in the worst flooding to hit Pakistan in decades.

Flash flooding from monsoon rains has submerged thousands of homes, washing away towns and villages. More than 33 million people across the country have been affected.

Save the Children is already operating in the worst affected provinces Shikarpur and Jacobabad, and deploying teams to other hardest-hit areas to assess the immediate needs of children and families. Emergency responders are distributing temporary shelters, household kits including pots and pans, dignity kits for teenage girls, and food packs to families.

Save the Children has so far reached 11,094 people, including 5,752 children, through responses to flooding and is working closely with government and local partners. Our teams are preparing for a significant scale up across all of the key areas we can help children, and this response will be a major priority for the region.

Children and their families are in desperate need, donate to our Children’s Emergency Fund to help us respond quickly to children living in crisis in countries like Pakistan.
