Trócaire, as part of the Caritas Internationalis, is responding to the devastating floods sweeping across Pakistan, which have so far killed more than a thousand people and left thousands more injured.

The floods have left a trail of destruction in Pakistan, causing some 33 million people to suffer the loss of their homes, livelihoods, and belongings. At least 313 children have lost their lives to torrential rains and floods across the country since the beginning of the monsoon season in mid-June.

Half a million houses have been damaged and almost one million livestock have died. 72% of Pakistan is currently affected by floods.

In response to the emergency, the Government of Pakistan has launched an international appeal seeking funds for relief and rehabilitation of flood-hit people and restoration of damaged infrastructure as the country sees its eighth cycle of monsoon rains.

Trócaire, through its partner Caritas Pakistan, has launched a Rapid Response Appeal to help those affected. There is currently an urgent needs of humanitarian assistance in the shape of tents/shelter kits, food, WASH and health services.
