Monsoon rains have triggered devastating floods in Pakistan’s southern and western regions.
Like previous years, the provinces of Sindh and Punjab have been badly affected, with hundreds of villages submerged. At least 300 people have died, and tens of thousands have been displaced.
Dams upstream, opened by neighboring India, have worsened the situation. Sadly, more extreme downpours are expected in the coming days.
‘Uthman ibn ‘Affan RadhiAllahu ‘anhu narrated:
‘By Allah! We have accompanied the Messenger of Allah in his journeys and while he was at home. He used to share everything with us, either little or much.’ [Ahmad]
Ummah Welfare Trust has been responding to seasonal floods in Pakistan. This year’s, however, is one of the worst in years, and stricken Muslims urgently need help.
Support the charity’s new appeal by donating what you can. Food stocks across Balochistan and South Punjab have been destroyed, leaving countless families with no food.
It is mothers and children who are suffering, and it is our duty to help them. Donate what you can and relieve their hunger today.
