EU Provides Rs76m to Assist Flood-Victims of Pakistan

The European Union is providing nearly 76 million rupees as humanitarian assistance to families affected by severe flooding, which has wreaked havoc across many parts of Pakistan.

The aid will focus on addressing the urgent needs of those most affected in some of the hardest-hit districts of Jhal Magsi and Lasbella in Balochistan.

The assistance will support International Rescue Committee in delivering much-needed assistance.

This includes the provision of cash transfers to help flood-stricken families to meet their immediate needs, primary healthcare services, with a focus on water-born and communicable diseases, which are common after a flood, as well as nutrition support.

The programme will also provide psychological support to vulnerable groups such as women, adolescent girls and children.

The EU funding is being made available via the European Civil Protection and Humanitarian Aid Operations of the European Commission, through its Small Scale Response mechanism.
