Football for Peace working with other organisations support in emergency crisis across the globe. Record breaking floods have affected over 33 million people – 15% of the country’s total population – without access to shelter, food, clothing, and medical aid.
The humanitarian situation is only getting worse as flood waters move to more low-lying areas. This could result in more people migrating and being forced out of their homes, more damage, and more pressure on the areas where people are seeking safety.
The hardest hit areas are Balochistan, Sindh, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP), and Punjab.
Many have left their homes with little or no belongings, desperately seeking safety on higher ground. Families have lost their homes, livelihoods, and in some cases loved ones.
One third of the country is currently underwater and more than 1,191 people have been killed including over 300 children.
We need your help and donations to work with members on the ground and provide life changing aid such as hot meals, water, food supplies, non-food items and hygiene supplies to flood affected families.
