The Changing context
Immediate and long-term needs of flood affected families

According to the reports, received from ACT field team, a large area in Sindh, Punjab and Baluchistan is still under water. This not only has restricted the access of people but may also cause various diseases in coming days. The already affected people are at risk of various health problems, especially Malaria, Dengue, Malnutrition and water borne diseases. Therefore, necessary actions must be taken to protect the affected people from other complications.

Moreover, most of the organizations are focusing on food supply, temporary shelters, bottled water and other means of assistance, while the affected people need to be provided shelters before winter. The health facilities need to be rehabilitated and livelihood support to be provided so they can start their normal life again.

ACT has launched appeal for the assistance of homeless and helpless flood affected populations of Punjab, Sindh and Baluchistan. This campaign will go on till early recovery and resettlement of the flood affected people.
