QRCS responds to the floods in Pakistan

In order to assist flood victims, lessen the effects of the disaster on them, and meet their basic needs, QRCS allocated $100,000 (QR365,000) from its Disaster Response Fund.

The Qatar Red Crescent Society (QRCS) has activated its Disaster Information Management Centre (DIMC) in response to the emergency flooding disaster in Pakistan in order to stay informed about the humanitarian situation and gather up-to-date information in coordination with the Pakistan Red Crescent Society.
To assist flood victims, lessen the effects of the disaster on them, and meet their basic needs, QRCS allocated $100,000 (QR365,000) from its Disaster Response Fund.
200 flood-affected families, or 1,400 people, will receive emergency housing and household supplies as part of the emergency humanitarian intervention plan in the Mirpur Khas district of Sindh.
A total of 1,000 blankets, 200 family hygiene kits, and 200 emergency shelter tents will be distributed.

In particular in Balochistan, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, and Sindh provinces, heavy rainfall in urban areas led to flash floods, landslides, and lake overflows. 543 people died, 627 were injured, over 46,000 homes were submerged, and numerous roads and bridges were damaged, severely affecting more than 30,000 people.
18 out of the 26 districts in the province of Balochistan were designated disaster areas by the Disaster Management Authority.
According to early reports, the repair of partially damaged homes, relief nonfood items (like blankets, kitchenware, hygiene kits, and tarpaulins), power generators, food supplies, and financial assistance are the most pressing needs.
