I have seen many, many humanitarian disasters in the world. But I have never seen climate carnage on this scale.
said UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres
There is a serious rise in hunger in Pakistan. According to the latest report more than 3.4 million children are facing chronic hunger. An estimated 760,000 children in flood-hit areas now experiencing severe food shortages and risking severe malnutrition, said Save the Children.
Also, according to latest report more than half of the people affected by recent floods are still sleeping outside in makeshift shelters in Pakistan.
The number of hungry has almost doubled in Pakistan since floods wreaked havoc across much of the country. Over 8.5 million people are now facing food insecurity – the majority of them in flood-affected regions.
With agriculture making up nearly a quarter of Pakistan's economy, officials now say the unprecedented floods may have cost up to $40bn (£35bn). Pakistan's inflation rate was more than 24% before the floods, according to reports, and some costs have climbed by 500%.
Monthly Emergency Food Pack
Muntada Aid has now started the distribution of monthly food packs in parts of Punjab, where many people affected by the floods are now living in makeshift camps. We are providing these families with monthly food parcels. As malaria is now an added risk in these camps, we are also distributing mosquito nets to families as a part of the Emergency Monthly Food Pack.
