Pakistan flood UNICEF Kid UN0691098 (1)_0

Torrential monsoon rains triggered the most severe flooding in Pakistan’s recent history, washing away villages and leaving almost 10 million children in need of immediate, lifesaving support, and at increased risk of waterborne diseases, drowning and malnutrition.

Pakistan floods hassaan-gondal-8Hundreds of thousands of homes have been damaged or destroyed as well as many public health facilities, water systems and schools. Frail, hungry, children are fighting a losing battle against severe acute malnutrition, water-borne disease, diarrhea, malaria, dengue fever, typhoid and acute respiratory infections.

Following the monsoon rains, damage to water supply systems and sanitation facilities has resulted in 5.5 million people no longer having access to safe drinking water. Despite UNICEF delivering a million liters of clean water each and every day, such is the scope of this crisis, many families have no alternative but to drink the disease-ridden water. They are now bearing the brunt of deadly water-borne diseases such as cholera, diarrhea, dengue, and malaria, which only reinforces already acute malnutrition.
