UN SECRETARY GENERAL’S VISIT TO PAKISTAN

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon visited Pakistan, to see for himself the human suffering and damage caused by the current floods — a disaster which is still unfolding.

He commented

It is a heart-wrenching day, and I will never forget the destruction and suffering I have witnessed.

I have visited the scenes of many natural disasters around the world, but nothing like this. The scale is so large: so many people, in so many places, in so much need.

I am here to send a message to the world: these unprecedented floods demand unprecedented assistance.

I pledge my commitment and the support of the United Nations through this difficult period and on every step of the long road ahead.

PRIME MINISTER’S APPEAL FOR ASSISTANCE TO

COPE WITH THE SITUATION BY UNPRECEDENTED FLOODS IN PAKISTAN

Pakistan has been hit by the worst flood of it history. While still struggling to cope with the negative impact of the situation on our western borders and the Internally Displaced Persons crisis, we have yet been hit by another natural disaster. The loss of human life and infrastructure is colossal. Real assessment of the damages can only be done once the water recedes. As I speak, the flood is still engulfing new areas and adding to the scale of devastation.

At this time of crisis I would like to appeal to the international community to support Pakistan to help alleviate the sufferings of the flood affected people.

Let me at the same time appreciate the quick response by some members of the international community, who have immediately rushed relief goods and provided other support. I would take this opportunity to appeal to the overseas Pakistanis to extend support to the people of their homeland in coping with their losses and sufferings.

I also urge the corporate sector of Pakistan to come forward and shoulder their social responsibility and generously support the victims of the disastrous flood.”
