As part of our mandate, CFC pulled together with donation to help in titanic emerging flood in Pakistan. The Pakistan floods began in July 2010 following heavy monsoon rains in the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Sindh, Punjab and Balochistan regions of Pakistan and affected the Indus River basin. There was a time; approximately one-fifth of Pakistan’s land area was underwater. The number of individuals affected by the flooding exceeds the combined total of individuals affected by the 2004 tsunami, the 2005 Kashmir earthquake and the 2010 Haiti earthquake. According to the government data the floods truly affected about 20 million people, mostly by destruction of property, livelihood and infrastructure, with a death count of close to 2,000. As the need for emergency relief exceeded CFC along with its donors launched relief efforts with Saaf Pani Initiative, Atta Distribution, and Healthcare Camps. Pakistan Navy Special Service Group and Pakistan Army facilitated CFC in its efforts immensely. CFC’s team also worked in District Dadu’s largest Tehsil Khairpur Natin Shah and the embankments in Dadu providing the people with clean water to drink, medical relief and food supplies. Khairpur Natin Shah of Dadu was hit severely with 95% of land underwater. CFC is still working on relief efforts for remote area with the facilitation of the Pakistan Navy.
