Pakistan Floods Fact Sheet

In the aftermath of the devastating floods, Oxfam and our partners have launched a rapid-relief effort to reach more than one million people with essential aid.

In summer 2010, unusually heavy monsoon rains triggered devastating floods along Pakistan’s populous Indus River Valley. By September, the flooding had affected an estimated 21 million people—more than were affected by the Indian Ocean tsunami, the Haiti earthquake, and Pakistan’s 2005 earthquake combined. With health risks growing by the day, it’s up to us to work with the Pakistani people to save lives now and begin rebuilding for the future.
