Millions of people have been severely affected by flooding in areas of Pakistan where SIM is working. We are committed to working with our local church partners to help those who have been made homeless or who are struggling to survive.
The floods have not only destroyed homes, but have also severely damaged crops. The prices of staple foods have increased significantly. Many who earn their living by working for landowners in the fields are facing possible destitution over the coming months, because there will be little or no harvest.
Our responses to the earthquake in 2005 and the floods in 2010 enabled us to bring hope, help and good news to many communities. People with gifts in administration, relief, construction and public health came to spend a few months equipping and encouraging Pakistani Christians as they reached out to communities around them. We would warmly welcome similar offers of help at this time.
Gifts can be directed to SIM’s Pakistan Emergency Relief Fund (98170).
US$30 will feed a family for a month, while US$100 will provide temporary accommodation for three families.
To donate, please visit your nearest SIM office website (see below for the list of offices).
