STORYLINE
UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, is mobilizing resources and staff to scale up its assistance in Pakistan to support local communities and refugees in areas devastated by the catastrophic floods.

Afghan refugees are among the 33 million people in Pakistan affected by torrential rains and flooding.

Pakistan has suffered regular flooding in the past, but this year has been on a different scale, closer to the catastrophic floods of 2010 that left almost 2,000 people dead.

This year’s monsoon floods have killed over 1,100 people already, while around 33 million have been affected by torrential rains and flash floods that have left 6.4 million people in need of shelter as well as food and other essentials.

UNHCR has already provided 10,000 tents and thousands of other relief items such as plastic tarpaulins, sanitary products, cooking stoves, blankets, solar lamps, and sleeping mats. Thousands of sacks have also been distributed to help households build sandbag defenses around their homes.

The assistance is being given to host communities as well as refugee villages.

In Balochistan, UNHCR is supporting by distributing emergency relief items, including sleeping mats, blankets, plastic sheeting, buckets and kitchen sets to affected communities of refugees and host community.

With partner DANESH, UNHCR has supported 69 families including refugees and host communities in Quetta.
