Right now, parts of Balochistan are facing some of the toughest conditions. Heavy rains and caused flooding in low-lying areas near Gawadar, Pasni, Ormara, Kech, Jiwani and many other areas throughout Balochistan. As of 5th January over 21 people have lost their lives and 19 are badly injured. Thousands of houses have been swept away with floodwater. In many areas roads, schools and hospitals are completely destroyed. HCR has relaunched its Pakistan Floods Emergency Appeal to help the people of Balochistan, Pakistan.
These communities are some of Pakistan’s poorest communities. They have been living in poverty for centuries. Without our support, these communities will fall into further poverty. Whilst we might not be able to help them rebuild their roads, houses or hospitals but we can help them get through this tough time.
