Donate to Help Victims of the Pakistan Floods
‘Whoever brought his brother out of a distress, Allah will bring him out of one of the distresses of the Day of Resurrection’. (Bukhari)
The government of Pakistan have declared recent floods a national emergency. The floods have resulted in 1000 dead and nearly 30 million without safe and adequate shelter. The Balochistan and Sindh provinces are the most affected, where record-breaking monsoons have washed away nearly half a million homes.
The ongoing floods have also submerged nearly 200,000 acres of agricultural land and destroyed vital water sources. Families have been left isolated, traumatized and in desperate need of assistance.
Lives have been lost, homes and livelihoods destroyed; the country will be grappling with the damage to their infrastructure for months- perhaps years.
Our teams are on the ground providing emergency food parcels, bottled water, hot meals and medical assistance. shelter kits and hygiene kits,
We have so far reached over 27,000 people with life-saving relief, but as the crisis continues, we need your help to continue supporting flood victims.

Calamity Destroys Lives Forever
A family in Kemari, Karachi is barely able to make ends meet as flood waters cause devastation. Monsoon rains have swallowed houses destroying everything near and far.
A young boy is the sole breadwinner of this household upon which 22 other people are dependent. But now, he alone cannot bear the brunt. Since their house has been destroyed, they have shifted to a neighbour's house to sleep at night.
In addition to mammoth destruction of homes, roads and bridges, families like these have no access to clean drinking water, food and health care. As people can be seen wading through contaminated waters, diseases are on the rise. There have been reports of victims suffering from diarrhea, skin ailments and vomiting.
Worried, helpless, and distraught the affected are reliant on support from donors. Though Muslim Hands teams have been on the ground providing clean water, food and health care, the scale of the destruction is widespread, and many more families need help rebuilding their lives.
One third of Pakistan is submerged in water affecting over 30 million people.
