Pakistan is currently facing one of the worst floods in its history. Over 33 million people have been affected, with thousands left homeless and without access to clean water or food. Over the last 72 hours:
– 1200 people dead.
– 30M people were affected.
– 15M people are homeless.
– 800K livestock deaths.
– 1.5 M houses were washed away.
– 40+ small dams breached.
The Pakistani government has appealed for international assistance, but so far the response has been slow. This is a humanitarian crisis of immense proportions, and it requires an urgent and coordinated response. If you are able, please consider donating to ZamZam so we can provide aid to those affected. Even a small amount can make a big difference.
We aim to distribute the following luggage baskets to flood victim families in Pakistan. Please find the below breakdown of the basket items-
- Family tent
- Polythene sheets
- Darri(carpet-like economical thing)
- Dry food
- Plastic shoes (as people have a walk through water or stay as water everywhere and normally people use leather or other stuff shoes)
- Dry milk for children and other child food packed
- Kerosene oil 5 ltr or dry wood
- Small burner
- Sanitary pads as flood relief work is normally done by male people and this thing gets ignored every time as affected areas are quite backward and religious.
Zam Zam Foundation is a 501(c)(3) tax deductible organization(Tax Exempt ID# 85-1571287). We are accepting any form of donation such as cash, cars, etc. Thank you for your support.
