The province is one of the most impacted regions in the country with villages inundated and many people displaced.

This year’s monsoon spell has wreaked havoc across Pakistan but some areas have been impacted more than others. Balochistan has suffered a lot due to heavy rain and floods that have inundated several villages and claimed approximately 225 lives and damaged over 26,000 homes, according to PDMA Balochistan. The full extent of the devastation is still unknown.

There are several ways to help and we’ve compiled a list of seven organisations you can reach out to in order to contribute to the flood relief efforts in the province.

Edhi Foundation’s Flood Relief Campaign

Edhi Foundation Pakistan flood relief teams are on ground in all flood affected areas across Pakistan and have been rescuing people, providing relief including cooked food, dry ration packs, tarpaulin sheets, medical aid and other non-food essential items.

Countless families, women and children are left with nothing but hope, and are in desperate need of cooked food, dry ration packs, tents and medical aid.
