Three months following devastating flooding in Pakistan, a Church World Service (CWS) staff member in Pakistan stated: "The loss remains incomprehensible, especially for those who repeatedly witnessed a series of hardships over the past decade, including other floods, earthquakes and civil conflict."

Presbyterian Disaster Assistance (PDA) continues to respond to the needs of flood-affected families in Pakistan. In cooperation with our ecumenical partners CWS and members of ACT Alliance, more than 100,000 people have received food, medical care and/or tents.

Once emergency needs are met, families and communities will need to focus on restoring their livelihoods, and the humanitarian community's most significant contribution will be its efforts to assist in livelihood restoration, notes Our CWS partner is currently opening construction trades training centers to equip communities to rebuild, and is providing additional support for livelihood restoration.
