For the millions affected by massive floods in Pakistan, the need for rapid humanitarian assistance is overwhelming and growing ever more urgent. Unprecedented levels of heavy rain that began in late July have triggered the nation’s worst flooding on record: the situation is worsening and has become a “mega-disaster” with rising deathtolls imminent unless relief efforts are immediately ramped up.

Concern has significantly increased its emergency response, and is targeting 819,216 people with supplies including food, clean water, hygiene kits, shelter materials and other basic necessities, as well as setting up mobile medical clinics to treat and prevent the spread of disease.
