UNICEF Appeal: Flooding In Northern Pakistan

The worst floods in decades have affected Northern Pakistan and UNICEF ambassador Robbie is appealing for your support

Over three million innocent people are in urgent need of help, including one and a half million children. The Khyber Pakhtunkhwa area is worst affected; the government has put the death toll at 1군 people with more than 100 people still missing. The actual figures are said to be higher.

Access to many areas have been cut off by the rising waters, with houses, schools, roads and vital supplies washed away by the floods. 

Basic food items and medical care are at the top of the agenda. UNICEF needs your support and the children's charity is appealing for £30 million over the next three months to help meet the needs of the children and keep the most vulnerable alive as the threat of disease increases.  

A donation of £30 could provide vaccinations helping to protect more than 45 children against killer diseases, while £50 could provide water kits supplying five families with safe drinking water.
