The monsoon rainfall of 2022 has adversely affected Pakistan causing floods, flash floods, and landslides that resulted in an increasing number of casualties and damage. The damage caused by the floods is beyond measure. More than 1000 people have lost their lives to the devastating flood, 1,456 suffered injuries, 802,583 livestock have been washed away, and 682,139 houses have collapsed. The destructive flood has ravaged roads, crops, homes, cattle, communication lines, electricity systems, clean water supply, and the bridges have been washed away destroying the entire infrastructure of the affected areas. It is predicted to be the worst flood situation in the country’s history as compared to the devastating floods of 2010 – the deadliest in Pakistan’s history – which left more than 2,000 people dead.
According to an estimate, the lives of 5.7 million people have been affected across Pakistan and the numbers are increasing.
Infection Prevention and Control Foundation has initiated the project Flood Funds – Hands to Help for the people who are in dire need. We turn to you, as our country faces an extremely challenging situation. We must unite as a nation and support the victims of the floods caused by torrential monsoon rains; which have affected millions of lives across Pakistan.
The 2022 floods in Pakistan have affected all provinces including Balochistan, Sindh, Gilgit-Baltistan, Punjab, Azad Kashmir, and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KPK). As per the official figures (NDMA, SIT-REP No.075) the massive floods have so far claimed 1,033 lives and injured 1,527 people. The estimated number of affected people is around 30 million, and around 1 million houses are totally or partially damaged leaving behind millions in need of urgent shelter.
