KARACHI, PAKISTAN August 26, 2022 — Baitulmaal, a Dallas-based international humanitarian nonprofit, recently delivered emergency food and water to 520 families impacted by severe flooding in Pakistan.
Families living in the hard-hit Sindh province as well as in Balochistan received emergency assistance. Clean water, cooked meals and food parcels containing items such as flour, rice and lentils were distributed to affected families.
Many families continue to be displaced from their homes due to the massive floods, according to Elizabeth Sohail, program manager at Baitulmaal, an international humanitarian nonprofit who has been responding to the floods since July.
“So many families are surrounded by knee-deep water,” Sohail said. “Our teams are making sure they are safe and have enough food and water to sustain them. But the flooding continues and many more families are in need.”
According to the United Nations Office for Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), more than 2.3 million people in Pakistan have been affected by heavy rains and flooding since mid-June. The death toll continues to rise, with at least 900 fatalities so far. Thousands of homes have been destroyed, crops have been flooded, livestock has perished and damage to roads have impacted services as well as aid efforts.
Baitulmaal is on the ground in Pakistan continuing to help affected families, with another phase of relief efforts underway. To contribute to emergency flood relief efforts, visit Baitulmaal.org.
