The Indus River in southern Pakistan has breached flood defences, forcing the evacuation of hundreds of thousands of people. The floodwaters have burst their banks in many places in southern Pakistan.

There are reports of new flooding in the province of Sindh, with estimates that hundreds of thousands more people have been made homeless by floodwaters in the past four days.

Several towns remain under water and the United Nations is warning the situation remains critical, with humanitarian aid yet to reach many and disease still a major threat

With your generous support combined with Government grants, Act for Peace has been able to raise over $900,000 for the emergency, allowing our partners on the ground to provide life-saving assistance to those affected by the disaster.
