Devastating floods in Pakistan

Pakistan has 7,253 glaciers, the highest number outside the world’s polar regions. Global warming is melting them at an alarming rate, causing flash floods across the country. A state of emergency has been declared in Pakistan. The situation is desperate.

The death toll has risen to 937 (as of yesterday), 30 million people are without shelter, 23 districts in the province of Sindh have been declared ‘calamity-hit’ as floods submerge southern Pakistan, hundreds of schools and more than 20,000 homes have been destroyed in Baluchistan, millions of cattle and entire crops are lost, help and donations are needed immediately. This has been going on since May but no one’s talking about it. Pls donate to organizations working on the ground. Here is a list.

We donated to the Edhi Foundation.
