Pakistan's government, working closely with the army, has assisted in evacuating thousands of people from the affected areas. However, Caritas Pakistan reports that there are more than 50,000 people still stranded and in urgent need of assistance.
The diocesan unit of Caritas Pakistan, which has been in close contact with the districts' local governments, has visited various flood-ravaged villages and assessed needs. Caritas Pakistan plans to provide 2,000 families from five districts with relief packages (food, kitchen utensils, soap) and 1,500 families with shelter support. Caritas Pakistan will also organise two-day camps in each of the five districts to offer medical care, immunisation, and vaccination services to approximately 500 people per camp.
Caritas Internationalis is a confederation of 162 Catholic relief, development, and social service organisations present in 200 countries and territories.
