The IRC has been providing lifesaving aid in Pakistan for 30 years. They are already working in the areas hit hardest by the floods, including Charsadda, Kohat, Lower Dir, Nowshera, Tank, Mardan and Swat. Last year, many of these same areas were affected by fighting between militants and government forces that uprooted millions of people.
The IRC will also focus on providing clean water, sanitation, shelter and essential supplies to those who have fled the rising waters. With our robust network of local staff and partners already on the ground — and decades of experience responding to emergencies in Pakistan — the IRC is well-positioned to help families in dire need.
