Our friends at Islamic Relief have moved into the next phase of their Pakistan flood relief aid and have started rebuilding houses for the millions displaced. Learn more about their work and how you can get involved.

Extremely heavy rainfall in Pakistan resulted in catastrophic flash flooding, leaving one-third of the country underwater.

More than 1,700 people have died since the floods began in June 2022, including more than 640 children.

Described as a¬†‚Äúclimate catastrophe‚Ä̬†by the UN Secretary General, the floods have left over a staggering¬†33 million people affected, including¬†8 million people displaced.

With homes and livelihoods lost, the looming harsh winter poses a great threat to so many who have already lost everything in the floods.

Islamic Relief Pakistan Begins Re-Building Houses

Balochistan and Sindh provinces were the hardest hit by the floods, where demolished public infrastructure and stagnant water continues to pose a great threat to the population. 220,000 homes were destroyed, and more than a staggering 2 million homes were left damaged.

Right now, fears are growing for a vast population who remain without homes or adequate shelter ‚Ästa harsh winter is looming¬†and without protection, many will succumb to¬†the danger of extremely cold temperatures, and a lack of vital provisions.

Islamic Relief is committed to helping those in need recover and rebuild after disaster strikes. With your vital support, Islamic Relief will begin building homes in some of the worst flood-affected districts of Dadu and Sohbatpur.

We’re working with local communities to identify and serve those who are most vulnerable, including:

  • Women and child-headed households
  • Families with persons suffering from disabilities
  • Those without the means to rebuild their homes

The homes will include a living space, a kitchen (equipped with a stove), and a bathroom. They will be built with inclusion measures in mind to support the elderly and persons with disabilities, such as widened doors, a ramp, and a commode chair in the bathroom. 

Our teams have been working tirelessly since the initial floods, and are on the ground right now, working with local communities to establish how best to support affected families, who urgently need food, shelter, bedding, and hygiene items.

Islamic Relief Pakistan has already supported more than 1 million people in Balochistan, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Sindh. Your donations so far have enabled us to distribute cash grants, food packs, tents, kitchen sets and hygiene kits.

Islamic Relief now asks for your help once more to support the people of Pakistan to move into habitable accommodations. For £2,000 you can fund a complete house for a family, each house will include a living space, a kitchen (equipped with a stove), and a bathroom or for £250 you can contribute one share of our house.

In reality, anything sum you are able to donate will help the people of Pakistan to rebuild their lives.
