Appeal for Flood Relief in Punjab, Pakistan

Pakistan has suffered a series of devastating inundations, affecting millions of people, in recent years. Many food stocks of the people have been destroyed. Already homeless and dispossessed, thousands of families are now facing hunger. In the worst-affected area in southeastern Pakistan, the waters submerged more than 4.5 million acres of farming land, damaging an estimated 80 percent of cash crops.

Many had barely recovered from massive and deadly flooding in August 2010, which left a fifth of the country submerged by water. Those floods lasted for weeks, affecting more than 20 million people and leaving 1,985 people dead. Much of the land inundated in 2010 was in the Punjab province, Pakistan's breadbasket, where many people make their living from agriculture and livestock. Great hardship followed for millions in the wake of the flooding.

Destruction is wide-spread across our part of the country once again this year. Transport and communications have been widely disrupted. Many areas remain inaccessible and thousands have yet to receive assistance. The worst is still to come as people in flood-ravaged areas try to return to normality. Medical facilities and doctors are bracing themselves for outbreaks of hepatitis, malaria, typhoid and other water-borne diseases.
