How you can help with the Pakistan crisis…
Pakistan still needs our help. And Oxfam is a great organization helping out. More info on all they’ve done in Pakistan so far over here. If you’ve thought about it, but haven’t donated yet, now’s the time to send your support.
The latest estimates indicate that 20 million people have been affected by the floods, which have swept away or damaged 1.2 million houses. Rushing water has also destroyed roads, bridges, and supplies of food and clean water. The death toll is now thought to be 1,539 people, and 2,055 have been reported injured.
Oxfam and our partners have launched a rapid-relief effort to reach more than one million people with essential aid. Despite major damage to the region’s transportation and communication systems, we are installing latrines and water-storage tanks and delivering clean water by truck to prevent deadly waterborne diseases from sweeping through communities of displaced people.
