Tuesday, August 16, 2022

The United States, through the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), is providing $100,000 in immediate assistance to support the people affected by severe flooding in Pakistan resulting from heavy monsoon rains since mid-June. The flooding, as well as landslides and glacial lake outbursts, have resulted in at least 573 deaths and more than 900 injuries. In addition, nearly 50,000 homes have been damaged or destroyed, an estimated 100,000 livestock have been lost, and the flooding has damaged roads and more than one million acres of crops. 

With these funds, the U.S. government is supporting a partner to provide multi-purpose cash assistance to meet the immediate needs of the most-affected communities. U.S. officials in the region and Washington, D.C., are closely monitoring the humanitarian impacts of the flooding in coordination with partners on the ground. The United States stands with communities in Pakistan as they recover from the monsoon rains and related flooding and landslides.
