Throughout the coming months, Experian staff members will support the cause through a dedicated fundraising initiative, encouraging their teams to get involved as its fits at the heart of their community give-back programme.

Instead of the usual river flooding, monstrous rains have now also caused urban flooding, flash floods, and severe inundations due to glacial lake outburst. Regions across the country have been hit with four to six times more rainfall than normal. One-third of Pakistan is underwater, and one in seven people have been affected.
The devastation is beyond catastrophic, with tens of millions of vulnerable people homeless, uprooted from their communities, and facing injury, disease, hunger, and psychological distress.
The most affected have been the regions of Sindh, Balochistan, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Gilgit-Baltistan, and Punjab where more than 1.6 million homes, some 750,000 livestock, 5,700 km of roadway and more than 200 bridges have been damaged or destroyed.
Further compounding the dangers facing flood-affected survivors is the water itself, which is contaminated with sewage, trash and debris, and dead livestock. Efforts to strengthen public health measures and stop the spread of diseases, including water-borne illnesses like cholera, are underway.
To survive this life-threatening flooding, Pakistan urgently needs assistance. Food prices are rising, disease is spreading, and tent supplies are dwindling. Human Appeal is responding to the current emergency situation in all flood-affected areas, including Sindh, Balochistan, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, and Punjab. Our emergency response effort includes providing thousands of hot meals and clean water and hundreds of hygiene kits, tents, additional household items like tarps, jerry cans, and buckets, and safe homes.
Generous donors have already helped us reach 70,000 flood-affected survivors in the hardest hit areas in Pakistan. Here’s a snapshot of what we have provided.
• Hot meals - 15,503 individuals
• Hygiene kits and household items – 7,625 households
• Dignity kits – 100 households
• Healthcare assistance - 442 individuals
• Food parcels - 390 households
Human Appeal is raising $10 million from both private and corporate donors to reach as many vulnerable people as possible in Pakistan’s worst hit areas. We are also now providing dry food parcels that can feed a family for two weeks and providing financial assistance for families to access primary medical care. Human Appeal, in cooperation with the World Food Programme, will be providing food packs to 30,000 families for 2 months in a few areas within Sindh, including Dadu district. In addition, we are looking ahead to begin home repair and construction in the coming weeks.
But we cannot do anything without your support.
