Pakistan Seeks AID For Assisting Flood Affectees


Everyone is aware of the severe and miserable condition of Pakistan's flood affectees and aid is offered from national and international donations. Things have become worsen and there seems no chance to get back to the previous state of the economy so immediately. Since June, the whole nation of Pakistan has been experiencing tremendous monsoon rains, presenting the government with its largest challenge in decades. Damage and casualties caused by these natural catastrophes around the nation have been staggering.


In the aftermath of the climate change-induced natural catastrophe, humanitarian organizations and even individuals are being asked to bear the financial burden of relief operations and demonstrate solidarity with one another from inside the country and beyond borders.


- Situation of Flood Prone Areas In Pakistan


Sadly, the floods have destroyed Pakistan badly but we still hope that floods will get handled so easily. The devastating floods have resulted in the displacement of more than 3.1 million people, the destruction of more than half a million homes, and the deaths of approximately one thousand people, the majority of whom were children.


In addition, the floods have caused the destruction of more than half a million homes. As a direct result of these catastrophes, there has been severe property damage sustained by almost half a million residents.


Roads and bridges spanning hundreds of kilometers have been damaged, and the deaths of around 710,000 animals have been reported.


- The Situation is not Yet Controlled But is Expected to Get Worsen


If the monsoon weather persists, it is anticipated that further rivers would overflow their banks and wash away roads and bridges. This might result in the submersion of a third of the nation and an increase in the number of fatalities.

It is probable that one third of the nation will be inundated as long as the precipitation continues to fall at the current rate. As a direct result of this, access to a number of mountainous regions in the northern part of the state has been cut off from the rest of the nation.


- Red Crescent Has Promised For Half Million Dollar AID


Over half a million dollars in United States currency has been allotted from the emergency funds of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies in order to provide immediate assistance to the 31,000 persons who have been impacted.


Within the ongoing relief effort, the assistance provided by the Norwegian Red Cross, the German Red Cross, and the Turkish Red Crescent will each be tallied and considered in the same manner.


- UN Humanitarian Coordinator Has Raised an Appeal for AID


U.N. Humanitarian Coordinator, Mr. Harneis, is worried that if more areas are reported to be impacted, more illnesses spread, and more people go hungry, the situation for those in need might worsen.


The United Nations has made a dire appeal for AID in the sum of 161 million dollars to be sent to Pakistan immediately.


Due to the fact that almost a million people throughout different regions of Balochistan, Sindh, Punjab, and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa will get food and financial AID that would allow them to continue to survive. This assistance is crucial to their continued survival.


- USAID Provided 1 Lac Dollar AID For Flood Affectees


Flooding in Pakistan on August 12 prompted the United States Ambassador to Pakistan, Donald A. Blome, to proclaim a state of humanitarian emergency as well as a national calamity. This was in response to the widespread destruction caused by the floods. Both of these arguments may be able to trace their roots all the way back to the floods that occurred in Pakistan not so long ago.


In response, the Bureau of Humanitarian Support of USAID donated $100,000 to USAID/Pakistan to be utilized in whatever manner would be most successful in assisting the impacted communities. This funding was intended to be used in Pakistan.


The National Disaster Management Authority of Pakistan said that the monsoons were responsible for the deaths of an additional 1,033 people in the province of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and in southern Sindh. The monsoon season began in the middle of the month of June, which is about four weeks earlier than it does on average. Because of this, 1,033 people have lost their lives so far during this year's monsoon season.


- Government Run Rescue Camps Became the Shelter for Miserable Affectees


The northwest portion of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province was severely affected by flooding along the Swat River the night before. As a result, tens of thousands of people had to leave their homes and seek refuge in government-run rescue camps. Charsadda and Nowshehra were badly affected by this.


Additionally, many individuals may be seen crouched in the ditches beside the highways. Members of the armed forces have been sent to several cities and towns around the nation to assist with search-and-rescue missions and humanitarian activities.


Twenty-two foreign tourists were rescued by the Pakistani army after they were trapped in a valley in the country's northern area, according to a statement provided by the military. The tour bus broke down and the passengers were left behind.

- PM Pakistan Mr. Shareef Promised to provide houses to those who have lost them


The Pakistani Prime Minister, Shabaz Sharif, recently made a trip to the city of Jafferabad, which is located in the province of Baluchistan. His purpose in going there was to speak with those who had been affected by the recent flooding. He made a commitment to those people whose homes had been demolished, by the government that they would be given other houses to reside in in the future.


At the moment, efforts are being made to raise money for former Prime Minister Imran Khan, which, if successful, would be of tremendous benefit to those people who have been left with nothing.


Alert: Unfortunately, Pakistan's stunning vistas are underwater yet. Damaged locations will soon be available to tourists after repairs are completed.

As a nature enthusiast and writer, one of my favorite things to do is to share the stories of my most memorable travel experiences at the various locations I visit. I am an extreme thrill seeker who constantly makes it a point to organize my vacations around going on trips. At best, I'm a solitary traveler, but I find that it's more enjoyable when I'm in the company of others. One day I hope to embark on a tour throughout the world!
