Millions in Pakistan are still in need of aid. Learn more about the work Zakat Foundation of America has done in the region and help them reach more people.

For over 33 million Pakistanis affected by devastating monsoon floods this past August, quality humanitarian relief has been crucial.

All these innocent people lost access to food, water and shelter in an instant, and their futures are still uncertain. Through your generosity, we’ve provided immediate relief since the start of the crisis and are continuing our efforts to help Pakistanis rebuild and recover. 

Your Pakistan flood relief donations matter.

The Situation in Pakistan

This past August, Pakistan’s monsoon season arrived with more force than ever.

Human-caused climate change from greenhouse gasses caused the Arabian Sea to send excessive volumes of water into Pakistan’s seasonal monsoon winds. These winds in turn brought massive downpours and flooding beyond what Pakistan had seen before. 

Since these monsoons, Pakistan has been devastated and the damage done to both lives and property has been immense.

Currently:

  • A third of Pakistan is underwater
  • 33 million people have been directly flooded out of their homes, lands, and possessions
  • 1,391 people have been killed (including over 400 children)
  • 3.4 million children need emergency care
  • 1.5 million people are cut off from water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) access
  • 1.7 million houses have been totally or partially destroyed 
  • $2.3 billion of crops have been damaged
  • $30 billion of economic damage and rebuilding costs are estimated 

With Pakistan’s people facing a long road to recovery in increasingly desperate conditions, Pakistan flood relief donations are more crucial than ever. We have been on the ground since the beginning of Pakistan’s flood crisis, and your Pakistan flood relief donations have already provided relief for thousands. 

How Your Support has Helped

Because of your generosity, our representatives and volunteers on the ground in Pakistan have been able to give those affected by the monsoon flooding:

  • Cooked meals
  • Essential food packs
  • Medical attention

We have been able to benefit over 5,000 Pakistanis and counting with your Pakistan flood relief donations and are currently enacting our long-term recovery plan. Zakat Foundation of America has a dedicated team of expert aid workers who live in Pakistan and are dedicated to helping us provide medical supplies, hygiene kits, tents, floor mats and food packs to those affected by the floods. 

We must continue supporting the people of Pakistan as they recover from this unprecedented situation with such little resources. 

Help us continue to give hope to the millions of flood victims who need our help.

Give to Pakistan’s Flood Victims.
