09.08.2010: DanChurchAid supports the Pakistan flood response with an additional three million DKR.

There is an increasing need for assistance as deadly flooding spreads and blocked roadways and communications continue to hamper aid workers from reaching cut-off survivors with vital food and supplies.

DanChurchAid's local partner Church World Service work around the clock to help the surviving by providing food packages, shelter materials and non-food supplies. In addition, one mobile health unit has been dispatched so far, delivering emergency health services.

Last Friday DanChurchAid was able to send an additional three million DKR to the areas affected by the disaster as a result of additional Danida funds.

Last Monday the first 750.000 DKR was given to support the relief work.

"We are very pleased with the additional Danida funds. We will make sure that the money quickly reaches our local partner and their work in the affected areas," says Secretary General in DanChurchAid, Henrik Stubkjær.

DanChurchAid is a member of the ACT Alliance, a global coalition of churches and agencies engaged in development, humanitarian assistance and advocacy.
