Tearfund has helped around 200,000 people following catastrophic flooding in Pakistan in 2010 and 2011.
Heavy monsoon rains brought colossal destruction to homes, property and livelihoods and affected about 25 million people.
Over the last two years, Tearfund’s operational team and our partners have been helping survivors recover in Sindh, Balochistan and Punjab provinces.Tearfund's team in Pakistan tell how they responded to the 2010 floods
In the initial aftermath of the floods, food, water and shelter materials were the key elements supplied but in the preceeding months the emphasis has been on longer term recovery work.
Shelters, toilets, clean water supplies, seeds for new crops, livestock, tools, cash-for-work schemes, hygiene kits, health education and disaster awareness training are among the projects that have been undertaken.
