AFGHANISTAN & PAKISTAN
EMERGENCY

Flooding and landslides have ravaged lives across Afghanistan and Pakistan, killing dozens, injuring more and devastating homes and livelihoods.

In Afghanistan, over 20 people have died in the last 48 hours and last week, 31 people also perished. In Pakistan, at least 36 people have died and across both regions, thousands have now lost their homes, livestock and crops. The effects of this catastrophic natural disaster will be felt for years to come as the already impoverished communities that are suffering will struggle to rebuild their homes and livelihoods, entrenching them further into the cycle of poverty.

These floods come as Afghanistan has already suffered earthquakes and both Afghanistan and Pakistan have endured targeted attacks on worshipers.

The Zahra Foundation is on the ground in both areas providing emergency aid to people affected through its local teams in the form of emergency shelter, food, medical aid, water and essential items such as hygiene kits and clothing.

The people of Afghanistan have suffered immensely this year and the flooding has taken the humanitarian situation in both regions to a critical point. We need your help to continue to provide crucial emergency assistance.
