2010 Pakistan floods

In July 2010, floodwaters covered over a fifth of Pakistan, putting over 9 million children at risk. Forced to flee their homes and communities, children have become vulnerable to water-borne diseases like cholera, malaria and skin infections as they seek shelter in crowded camps.

UNICEF acted fast to keep children safe with medical care, shelter, immunisations, food and clean water. We also set up temporary schools and safe places to play so children could recover from the trauma. When the floodwaters recede, many won’t have homes, schools or livelihoods to go back to. UNICEF will remain doing whatever it takes to help children and their families recover and rebuild their lives.

Donate now to save lives, protect childhoods and give children the chance to go to school, in Pakistan and wherever else children need us.
