2010 Pakistan flooding
Pakistan flood relief – Rebuilding
- © CBM/CHEF
CBM and its local partners are now shifting their emergency relief efforts towards rebuilding homes, schools and livelihoods. To date, and with your support, we have helped more than 44,000 flood survivors.
45 per cent of Pakistan’s labour force relied on agriculture as their only source of income. 21 per cent of the country’s GDP came from cotton, wheat, sugar cane and fruit and vegetables crops, much of which was whipped out.
The World Bank warns the economic impact of the floods could be felt for years due to massive crop damage and the ensuing food shortages.
