Floods in Pakistan have left more than 1,300 people dead and 14 million affected as waters wash away people’s homes, crops and livelihoods. The Hunger Project stands in solidarity with the people of Pakistan and the many agencies that are working to provide relief.
While The Hunger Project does work to support disaster preparedness in the areas where we work, we are not a disaster response organisation and we do not have programmes in Pakistan. To support such work, we encourage you to give directly to organisations working to alleviate this situation, visit the Disasters Emergency Committee website.
While crisis support is unquestionably needed at this critical time, the situation in Pakistan is yet another unfortunate example of how critical it is to invest in the capacity and resilience of people living in poverty throughout the world so they can better cope when emergencies do arise.
