Our Emergency Responses
Heavy seasonal rainfall and consequent floods across several major geographic areas of Pakistan, including Sindh, Balochistan and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, have so far killed 937 people, including 343 children, and left 33 million people homeless. Severe food shortages, lack of shelter, contaminated drinking water and hazardous travel will result in ongoing hardship for families, women and children.
ADRA is currently assessing the needs but is responding immediately by providing food packages to vulnerable families and establishing safe drinking water distribution points.
ADRA is working with our team in Ukraine to provide urgent humanitarian aid including water, food, shelter, blankets and clothing. We are also working with our ADRA teams in surrounding countries, including Poland, Romania and Hungary, as they respond to the needs of incoming refugees. According to the United Nations, at least 12 million people have fled their homes since Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. You can find out more details of our response here.
In 2021, drought, conflict, high inflation and COVID-19 have gripped the already struggling country forcing even more people to become displaced and hungry. Today, one in three Afghans are experiencing CRISIS levels of food insecurity.
ADRA is responding by equipping women, children and internally displaced with food and heating, helping those most vulnerable stay warm, healthy and survive the harsh Afghan winter.
