Pakistan: UN and partners seeking $357 million to assist with flood response -
19 September 2011 – The United Nations and its partners are asking donors to fund a $357 million plan to help the Pakistani Government provide vital assistance to more than five million people affected by massive flooding in the country’s south.
The plan, launched yesterday in the Pakistani capital, Islamabad, aims to provide food, water, sanitation, health care, and emergency shelter to the most-affected families for six months. It is similar to a plan launched last year in the wake of the devastating floods that affected some 20 million people, resulted in some 2,000 deaths and submerged about a fifth of the country.
The Flood Fund joins GuideStar to provide organizational transparency and facilitate information sharing.
