The country is faced with a flood disaster again similar to the one in 2010.

The floods, triggered by monsoon rains, have left hundreds of thousands of people homeless over the past six months. According to reports, 1,2 million houses have been damaged, thousands of acres of fields and farmlands have been destroyed and clean water resources have been ruined in the floods.

The IHH has dispatched emergency relief items, which included medical supplies and food to the flood-stricken country. An emergency aid team from the IHH has taken relief items including food, medicine and water to 1,000 families in Rashidabad in Sindh. In addition, the IHH team also delivered aid packages which included rice, bean, sugar, vegetable oil, lentil, flour and shoes to the flood victims in Sindh’s Badin, Tharparkar, Tando Muhammad Khan areas. IHH aid packages have reached nearly to 6,000 people.
