Send Help after Monsoons in Pakistan

Project Leader:

Pope Francis

Monsoon rains have caused catastrophic floods and landslides across Pakistan. In just a three-week span more than 60 percent of the usual rainy season has fallen. “The loss of life, the suffering, the destruction of homes, bridges, roads, crops, and livelihoods is enormous and serious. Citizens, especially farmers and the poorest, urgently need humanitarian assistance,” said Archbishop Joseph Arshad of Islamabad-Rawalpindi, and President of the Catholic Bishops' Conference of Pakistan. “Thousands of people, especially the most vulnerable, are facing internal displacement and need help to survive.” Pakistan recorded a total of 375.4mm of rain, nearly triple the national average over the past 30 years. There are more than 222,000 displaced people in camps and temporary settlements. “Do not leave us alone in this hour of pain and need,” said the Archbishop. The government declared a state of emergency and Pope Francis has invited the international community to support Pakistan. The Pontifical Mission Societies in the United States, using the established protocols, will ensure effective distribution of funds donated by the faithful to assist people in great desperation. Please help sustain the work of those who will bring relief to brothers and sisters who have lost everything, family, livelihoods, their homes.
