Mercy Relief, Singapore's leading independent disaster relief agency, is responding to the Pakistan floods, where the Southern provinces of Balochistan and Sindh are most affected.
Since 14th June 2022, Pakistan has been afflicted by heavy monsoon rainfall, almost 3 times higher than the national 30-year average, which has resulted in destructive flooding. Consequently, the human and infrastructural impacts have been estimated to be the worst in the Balochistan and Sindh provinces.
It was reported that at least 33 million people in Pakistan have been affected, with 3.1 million people displaced and 1,282 deaths. The rainfall and floods have destroyed almost 1.2 million houses, with close to a million houses coming from Sindh province alone.
Mercy Relief will be working alongside our ground partner in Pakistan, National Rural Support Programme (NRSP), to provide and distribute emergency relief assistance in the form of food items and tarpaulin sheets, to the worst affected and most vulnerable families in Sindh province.
