Pakistan has the fifth largest population in the world. The country is sorely affected by political and economic volatility as well as natural disasters caused by climate change, both of which have led to food insecurity and chronic poverty. Marginalized groups, especially children, lack proper access to essential services. And Covid-19 has only exacerbated the situation.
On top of that, temperatures have been rising across the country since mid-March and heatwaves have resulted in drought-like conditions. In certain parts of the country, agriculture is a main source of income. Without access to water, the livestock suffer and people’s livelihoods are at risk. Islamic Relief is monitoring the situation on the ground. Our immediate response includes access to water; the provision of drought resilient crops and animal fodder for livestock; and health interventions regarding nutrition.
And with donors like you, we can do even more. This month is Islamic Relief’s largest feeding program of the year – Qurbani! With just one donation, you can provide families with meat for Eid Al-Adha. Help a family in need in Pakistan and witness the power of giving.
Islamic Relief has served in Pakistan since 1992, and continues to provide humanitarian and development assistance in the country today.
A few of our interventions include:
Thanks to you, we’ve been able to accomplish so much. But there’s still so much more to do. By continuing to support our efforts in Pakistan, you can help make a difference in the lives of those in desperate need.
