The un-precedent flooding has had a heavy toll on the lives, livelihoods and
infrastructure in 22 districts of the Province. Over 1000 precious lives have
been lost and many still unaccounted for. The number of people rendered
shelter-less by the floods has risen to over 3 million people. Over 100 main
roads and bridges have been washed away, electricity and telephone services cut
off making access to the families stuck in remote areas a major challenge for
the Government and relief organizations. Rushing water has washed away thousands
of acres of crops, government buildings, businesses, schools, bridges and homes.
Flood waters have destroyed much of the health infrastructure in the worst
affected areas, leaving inhabitants especially vulnerable to water-borne
diseases.

Appeal for urgent financial and in kind donation to the flood affected families
in Pakhtunkhwa

The people and government of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa need your generous financial
support to deal with the massive rescue, relief and rehabilitation efforts in
the flood affected areas.

The un-precedent flooding has had a heavy toll on the lives, livelihoods and
infrastructure in 22 districts of the Province. Over 1000 precious lives have
been lost and many still unaccounted for. The number of people rendered
shelter-less by the floods has risen to over 3 million people. Over 100 main
roads and bridges have been washed away, electricity and telephone services cut
off making access to the families stuck in remote areas a major challenge for
the Government and relief organizations. Rushing water has washed away thousands
of acres of crops, government buildings, businesses, schools, bridges and homes.
Flood waters have destroyed much of the health infrastructure in the worst
affected areas, leaving inhabitants especially vulnerable to water-borne
diseases.

The devastating floods will have a severe impact on an already vulnerable
population hit hard by the fight against terrorism. A state of emergency has
been declared in the Province and the Provincial Government has diverted all its
meager resources to deal with this huge human crisis. The rescued
families are being provided temporary shelters in government schools, with basic
facilities such as clean drinking water, cooked food and basic health care.

Despite all out efforts by the Provincial Government of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, the
scale of the crisis is so immense that it needs urgent and immediate support
from Federal and International Governments, Aid Agencies, relief Groups and
Philanthropists.

Please come forward and donate generously to the ongoing efforts.

You can send your donations to the Chief Minister Khyber Pakhtunkhwa s Relief
Fund No. G-12138 or the Baacha Khan Education Foundation A/C No.
0181-374471000069 MCB Hayatabad 1448. You can also send in kind support in the
shape of tents, mattresses, clothes, clean drinking water, dry milk, food items,
ORS etc, through the Provincial Government s designated deposit cells or through
the Awami National Party s Markaz in Peshawar.
