The Pakistani government has declared a state of national emergency after the monsoon rains in the province of Balochistan killed nearly 1,033 people, over 300 of them were children.
Almost 33 million people in the region are currently without shelter. According to the National Disaster Management Authority over 1,500 people have been injured. Almost 950,000 homes have been destroyed forcing millions to be displaced.
Another 149 bridges and 3,450km of roads have made the victims inaccessible to rescue teams and aid networks. This is combined with the fact that almost 800,000 livestock have also been killed which will be a major worry due to food scarcity.
These floods come back off the similar disaster that recently struck the country in 2010.
Human Appeal’s field team has begun mobilising in an effort to reach the affected areas and help the families in need.
