"This disaster is worse than the tsunami, the 2005 Pakistan earthquake and the Haiti earthquake,” said a UN spokesman.This week, fuelled by more monsoon rains, flood waters have surged south through the country on their way to the Arabian Sea, leaving a trail of devastation.

slide4

So far, at least 1,600 people have been killed.A massive 14 million people have been affected – equal to the combined populations of Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.

slide5

This 14 million is made up of individuals such as Umer Hazrat (right). His wife and five children were fast asleep when the floods came. They only just escaped with their lives. ‘I lost my house, my two goats and two cows, and my crops. But I am thankful to God that my family is alive,’ says Umer Hazrat.

slide6

Tearfund has been working with Pakistani communities since 1975. With our local partners, we are responding to this disaster. Our partner SSEWA-Pak is urgently increasing emergency aid distributions to help as many people as possible…

slide7

SSEWA-Pak have already distributed aid packages to around 8,000 people such as Umer Hazrat.

Their work continues – in the coming days they will reach another 6,000 people.

Emergency packages include food, health and hygiene kits, and tarpaulins for emergency shelter.

slide8

Please pray…

  • Please continue to pray for the people affected by this disaster, that they will know God’s comfort and hope.
  • Pray for survivors’ health, as water-borne diseases thrive in flood conditions.
  • Ask God to be with the Pakistani authorities, that they will do all they can to help affected communities.
  • With so many roads and communication links still down, many communities are cut off or stranded. Please pray that Tearfund partner staff and other aid workers will continue to find ways through.
  • Please pray for Ashraf, Tearfund’s Pakistan Country Representative, and his colleague Obed, who are working incredibly hard to support our local partners.
  • A number of Tearfund partners are just about to start new programmes to help survivors – please pray for them. Pray also for SSEWA-Pak staff as their work continues.

A prayer for PakistanLord God,

We ask that those suffering because of the Pakistan floods will find hope and comfort in you. And that those responding to this disaster will be sustained by your love. As part of your worldwide church, we ask these things in Jesus’ name,

Amen
