Flooding in Pakistan
August 31, 2022–
Operation USA is deeply saddened by recent devastating floods in Pakistan. This catastrophic disaster reminds us once again of the ever-worsening impact climate change has on communities grappling with disaster worldwide.
Due to the ongoing flood crisis–since the rainy season started in June–more than one third of the country has been severely impacted. Reports from the area state that the death toll has surpassed 1,000 and more than 33 million people are affected by flood damage, displacement and lost livelihoods.

Though Operation USA has worked in Pakistan previously, and remains committed to helping the country however possible, opportunities to deliver aid are limited at this time. We thank the U.S. government for its pledge of $30 million for Pakistan–to help with shelter, food and sanitation. Individuals looking to contribute to relief efforts should consider Islamic Relief or International Rescue Committee–both are well-reviewed organizations with a proven track record for providing aid in the impacted areas.
