Torrential floods have caused immeasurable destruction to human lives, properties, and infrastructure across Pakistan; Balochistan, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Southern Punjab, Gilgit Baltistan, Sindh and Chitral are affected. Large-scale rehabilitation efforts are needed to bring back normalcy in these regions. Many areas in these places are inaccessible due to high levels of water hampering the relief work.
Federal and provincial governments have appealed to the people of Pakistan to donate generously to flood victims; food, clothes, and tents are needed to provide shelter to the people displaced due to floods in all these provinces.
