CERF Allocation

Pakistan

Flood, 30 Aug 2022

Overview of the humanitarian situation

Heavy monsoon rains caused floods and landslides across Pakistan, with Balochistan, where rainfall as of 13 August was 3.5 times its 30-year-average, being one of the most affected provinces. This situation has forced people into displacement; destroyed crops and livestock; damaged bridges, railways and roads; and disrupted access to drinking water and health care, increasing associated health risks. Balochistan already has some of the country’s highest rates of malnutrition and food insecurity.

CERF-funded assistance

In response to the crisis, the ERC allocated $3 million from CERF’s Rapid Response window for the immediate commencement of life-saving activities. This funding enables UN agencies and partners to provide life-saving assistance to 90,000 of the most vulnerable affected people, including 30,009 women, 21,830 men, 44,851 children, and including 6,330 people with disabilities in the Health, Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH), Nutrition and Food Security sectors.
