Pakistan Floods Emergency Appeal

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.

Reclaim Gift Aid

Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows Humanity Care Relief to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to Humanity Care Relief we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like Humanity Care Relief to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that Humanity Care Relief will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When Humanity Care Relief receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.

Heavy Rains in Balochistan

According to the Pakistan Metrological Department (PMD), Gwadar recorded 57.2mm rain, with a thunderstorm in the district badly affecting the communication system. The PMD said more rain is expected in the district.

Other than Gwadar, Pasni received the highest rainfall of 70mm, Ormara 27mm, Kech and Jiwani 24mm, Quetta 8mm, while Khuzdar, Dalbandin, and Panjgur received 3mm rainfall.

The Met Office had already predicted a westerly weather system of strong winds entering northern Balochistan, which triggered heavy downpours in different parts of the province.

(Previous) Pakistan Flood Appeal

In August 2020, heavy rains have hit parts of Pakistan, including the financial capital of Karachi. This rainfall caused extensive damage across the country destroying many villages and towns. The rain caused floods in many areas of the country, especially in Sindh and Punjab. Streets and homes were flooded with sewage water, destroying many houses and the livelihoods of thousands of families.

Humanity Care Relief was one of the first UK charities to deliver aid to flood victims in Pakistan. We distributed life-saving food aid among hundreds of needy families in Karachi and other areas of Sindh including Tharparkar.

Every year Monsoon rains bring further misery to already poor

Whilst the monsoon showers bring relief from the unrelenting summer for the poor. They also expose how fragile life is if you are poor. Every year hundreds of lives are lost to monsoon floods throughout Pakistan. Humanity Care Relief works with many poor communities, we help them prepare for these floods by providing them financial assistant from your Zakat donations. Our support means they can build flood defences and store food for this season. Continue your support towards Humanity Care Relief’s charity projects and help us save lives.

Our Response to Pakistan Floods

Humanity Care Relief has teams of volunteers on the ground throughout Pakistan and Azad Kashmir. With your generous support, we respond to every emergency. Like all previous Pakistan Floods, for this Floods Emergency Appeal, we are aiming to distribute 1,000 food packs amongst the affected families. Each food pack costs £40 and there is enough food for a family of 4-5 to last them for one month.

£40 are not a lot for us living in the west but it could provide a lifeline for a family facing hardship due to the floods. We cannot do this alone, we need your support. Donate generously for Pakistan Floods Emergency Appeal and help your brothers and sisters in need.
