Millions of Pakistanis on the verge of death

Millions of Pakistanis on the brink of death to save the planet

Due to the low efficiency of rescue and welfare measures, millions in Pakistan are still at risk of dying from malnutrition and disease after the flood, which occurred two years ago.

Pakistan Humanitarian Forum, a network of 41 charities, a few months ago began to call on the international community and the authorities to take serious steps to prepare for the new season monsoon. The main argument in support of their appeals Forum considers the depletion of reserves and the bank's charitable donors in Pakistan.

What happened in 2010, a flood caused and exacerbated the food crisis in the country, which can not be compared even feeding conditions in the African Sahara. At the moment, at least 2.5 million Pakistanis are trying to survive with a lack of food, water and shelter in bad sanitary conditions and a high risk of infection with various diseases. About 43% of the number of victims in the southern provinces of Sindh and Balochistan on the brink of starvation.

For salvation in Pakistan UN appeal was drafted to collect 357 million dollars, but of this amount was able to collect only 50%. Pakistanis are still unable to return to a normal life, because their houses were destroyed, and the fields are filled with water for the second crop season. Thousands of families lack the most basic clothing and food, not to mention drugs for sick children.

The situation is aggravated by the fact that the volunteers towards international organizations to help ordinary citizens have to fear for their lives. Thus, the five members of the humanitarian community reported missing or stolen, what previously happened. In no other country where volunteers work there are so many hostages. This is forcing aid agencies to work in hazardous environments and to develop more sophisticated measures to protect their employees.
