Islamabad, August 27, 2022 (PPI-OT):The European Union is providing 1.8 million Euros in humanitarian aid to families affected by flash floods across large parts of Pakistan. The aid funding will assist affected people in some of the hardest-hit districts of Sindh, Balochistan, and Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa provinces.
Commissioner for Crisis Management, Janez Lenarcic, in a statement said unusually heavy monsoon rains led to deadly flash floods in Pakistan. He said while the assessment on the ground is ongoing, we expect more than one million people having lost their homes and are in need of direct assistance.
He said the EU contribution underlines our commitment to the people of Pakistan and enables our partners to provide life-saving aid to those most affected. This latest funding comes in addition to last week’s allocation of 350,000 Euros in aid to help people in Pakistan’s flood-affected province of Balochistan.
