Extreme weather hits Pakistan

Since mid-June, Pakistan has been experiencing a series of extreme weather events. Flash floods, heat waves and the monsoon season are causing widespread flooding and landslides. The situation is likely to worsen in September with more rains to come.

More than 33 million people are affected by the floods, which have caused the death of nearly 1,200 people in two months. Houses, roads and bridges are destroyed. The damage is considerable and puts the population at risk of a health crisis due to unsafe water.

Oxfam and its partners are ready to launch

The Pakistani government is calling for international aid to provide shelter, drinking water, hygiene kits and food to the population. Our local partners and teams are organizing to meet the needs.

Oxfam plans to focus its efforts in the most affected provinces, Balochistan and Sindh, to bring a targeted response.

« We need everyone to help. The rains in Sindh and Balochistan have surpassed 30-year averages. We implore everyone to donate as much as possible to reliable organisations. »
