2022 Pakistan Floods Response
APPEAL: 2022 Monsoon Floods
To Support Emergency Relief Response in Flood Affected Areas of Sindh
Twenty-Three districts have been officially been declared to be ‘Calamity Hit’ by the Government of Sindh. The humanitarian situation in Sindh province has deteriorated further over the past two weeks as heavy rains continue to cause flooding resulting in displacement and damage across the province.
The adverse weather conditions have incurred significant human and livestock casualties and widespread damage to private homes and public infrastructure, especially in Sindh provinces. The National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA) reports some 33-million people in Pakistan being affected. As of 30 August, 2022. Pakistan has experienced 375.4 mm of rainfall – 2.9 times higher than the national 30-year average of 130.8 mm, while Sindh’s is 5.7 times higher its 30-years average.. These rains have primarily fallen on Sindh and parts of the country, with Sindh receiving 5.7 times its 30-year average.
Around 1.54 million acres of crops and orchards have also been impacted in Sindh. Damage to infrastructure has further worsened the humanitarian situation, as partial or complete destruction of over 2,328 km of roads and 60 bridges impedes the ability of people to flee to safer areas or to travel to access markets, healthcare, or other vital services, and restricts the delivery of aid to people in need.
Provisional data from provincial Education Departments of Sindh show that at least 15,842 schools have been damaged or destroyed due to the emergency. Additionally, at least 5,492 schools are reportedly being used to accommodate displaced people.
Damages in Sindh Province: 1,518,827 Houses destroyed / Damaged; 23 Districts of Sindh; 1.54 million Acres of Crop impacted; 339 Death; 1,009 Injured; 14,927 Livestock lost; 15,842 Schools Destroyed / Damaged; 2,328 km Roads Damaged; 60 Bridges Damaged.
